What an exceptionally amazing artwork of my second favorite elf lord! This is honestly one of the best depictions I have seen (and believe me I have sifted through my fair share of artwork lol) it's truly inspiring. There's so much emotion and drive in this piece simply lovely!
Wah~~~ Maedhros!!! My favorite character in the book! He looks ready for battle! Orcs better run! LOL Come to think of it.... they did run, if I remember correctly. In the book there is a line about how enemies fled before him because he looked really frighting. Right?
everything...about this...ok now it's settled. I have to read the Silmarilian so I can find this guy No seriously, the movement and beauty of this character makes me happy. I started to read the Silmarilian years ago but found I could never concentrate long enough to really get into it. It's one of those books I have to have quiet and calm to really enjoy I have four sons and my house is always loud and crazy. Maybe I will start reading it again now. Anyway, this is just gorgeous. I love how you draw Tolkien figures that look nothing like Mirkwood elves OR Orlando Bloom.
By the way, if you don't mind me asking, how many layers do you employ coloring a piece like this? I have wanted to try another anime style piece just to see if I could, but my painted works always devolve into traditional style painting using only one layer. >.<
Oh Thank you so much for the comment! I'm glad you like the characters whom I drew I have always using about ten layers. The layer of Pen drowing is made into the top, and the layer of skin, hair, and armor, etc... are put on the bottom of it.
