Chill out at Barad Dur.

grimhel:

I’m reading the Silmarillion for the first time. 

So here some random illustrations I had in mind. I think they are a bit static/flat but whatever, It’s was done quickly just for fun. Let share love with other fans.

Sauron in wolf form VS Luthien and Huan

And Feanor with the Silmarils

Thanks Davinarfel for touch ups (Feanor’s cloths for exemple)

Imagine Necromancer Sauron brooding around Dol Guldor, missing Morgoth and being a lost puppy without him

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

very fast doodles of some maiar,connected with Middle-Earth

Melian, Sauron, Curumo, Olorin, Eonwe & Aiwendil 

I finally draw Eonwe,found some inspiration in eastern orthodox art 

|| This is beautiful. Aiwendil is adorable. Though, for a moment, I though Olorin and Eönwë were swtiched… but Byzantine-inspired angel-like dark-haired Eönwë is gorgeous, I am in love.
Anyway, someone should make art of Ilmarë too: she is too often forgotten.

”Then hate overcame Fëanor’s fear, and he cursed Melkor and bade him be gone, saying: ‘Get thee gone from my gate, thou jail-crow of Mandos!’ And he shut the doors of his house in the face of the mightiest of all the dwellers in Eä.”

sorry not sorry

Melkor, brother, I think you are voluntarily forgetting your very first failed seduction/flirting attempt with Varda.

WHAT AM I PAYING YOU FOR?

(It’s okay, Sauron. Maybe it was so foggy you couldn’t see a wide open, mountainless area that for no reason at all whatsoever could hold any population. Nah, don’t stress about it man.)

I WAS BLEEDING OUT THE NECK 

AND THERE WERE EAGLES 

okay but imagine gondolin when a dark, blood-dripping cloud passes overhead suddenly

The 5 Most Incredibly Detailed Replicas Ever Made by Fans

#5. A Lord of the Rings City Made of Matchsticks
For reasons that neither science nor theology will ever be able to explain, Patrick Acton decided to spend three years of his life stacking matchsticks together to form the mountain city of Minas Tirith… Between the fortified city and the mountain upon which it sits, this seven-tier structure was built using 450,000 individual matchsticks. … He even managed to build curved walls and the winding branches of a miniature tree using nothing but tiny, brittle sticks.

And they could have fangs and stuff. What do you say?

Long time no OTP. Trying a more minimal coloring style. I’ll get back to my usual methods eventually but right now I am having a great deal of fun with this.

I think of Celebrimbor hearing this for the first time when Sauron forged the One Ring and put it on his finger - knowing that despite everything, the suffering of the Noldor in Beleriand and the loss of so many of the House of Finwë, the death of Celebrimbor’s grandfather Fëanor and his father Curufin, despite the Elves trying to start over with new kingdoms in Eriador and forging magic rings to slow the decay of time - that it was all for nothing.

Sauron, the lieutenant of Morgoth, had returned to power and he had tricked and used Celebrimbor’s skill to do it.
