Then in defiance of the Orcs, who cowered still in the dark vaults beneath the earth, he (Fingon) took his harp and sang a song of Valinor that the Noldor made of old, before strife was born among the sons of Finwë; and his voice rang in the mournful hollows that had never heard before aught save cries of fear and woe. -The Silmarillion
This is one of the scenes I've ever wanted to draw. The reaction of Maedhros when he hears Fingon's voice singing.
Watercolors and colour pencils on Canson paper. ( Reference )
And.. I know the symbol of the house of Fëanor is a silver star, but I decided to draw a golden one because I wanted to highlight the symbol of Maedhros father as well as I drew the fabric with grey tones and a bit dark so I couldn't find a way to drawing silver details :/
I hope you like it
You’re amazing at facial expression! A rare gift! This is a powerful moment - when Maedhros, beyond despair, hears a song from the far reaches of his memory, almost forgotten... Is it real? It cannot be! He has to be dreaming...
Gosh ... amazing work! It´s so much sadness and hope in here!
wow. holy cow. the surprise and hope you capture on his face is very moving. I really love the story of maedhros and fingon and I really love anybody who captures the desperate moment of fingon finding him. Just--thank you.
Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it
This is off topic, but who is the face on your icon? I can't find it in your gallery.
He's Glorfindel ^^ It's from a drawing I did 2 months ago! I didn't post it yet because It's an entry for a contest I will post it next month
Amazing portrait! And merciful to poor Maedhros (I mean - you left him the fabric to cover). I love his face and hair
