Eönwë was the banner-bearer and the herald of Manwë, and Chief of the Maiar along with Ilmarë. Eönwë was the "greatest of arms in Arda," was the best with weapons and the most skilled in warfare.
His bold expression fits him very good here. And the eagles in the background a bit like a shine or crown emerging behind him. He looks convincing that he actually might be the greatest of arms in Arda.
He's very beautiful, noble, powerful. This is my favourive from all Silmarillion portrayal! I agree with the other comments, Eonwe trully looks like that! I especially love his glance. His armour and clothes are also perfect. Great work!
Великолепная Работа! Большое спасибо за расширенную версию)).
that's how Eonwe should look like!
Ok, yes, I'd most certainly would not stand in his way *nods* That is one powerful Maia there!
O_O he looks so fantastic.... soooo perfect!!
Go Eonve ! Yea
He looks very noble and powerful. Great picture.
I love the depth illusion here.
Ох! отлично! Суровый и величественный дядя, таким его и вижу !
It is always a good sigh when I can see who the picture is of before reading the title or the text. The silmarillion contains few physical descriptions of its characters, so we are stuck with mental images. This one fits mine perfectly!
So majestic he is! It's good to finally see some Eonwe fanart! And I agree with all the others, he doesn't look like a totally mortal being, and that's the way he should look, you captured that perfectly. I especially adore his flowing hair...! I love Tolkien elves with flowing hair
Wow, this is so epic and fantastic. I love how you painted the metallic details as well as his stern face and majestic pose. This feels very much "larger than life," and is very appropriate for the character.
That' s really stunning! He really has that "piercing light" in his eyes, he looks so majestic! Compliments, this is the only one drawing of a maia ( or vala ) that I find truly believable!
Stunning! He truly looks like the greatest of Maia!
great work, wonderful pose and details!
Lovely work!!! Considdering his job description, I'm suprised he and feanor were not the best friend forever
Wow....he's amazingly beautifull!
You have drawn Eonwe! I love it, there is not much pictures of my favourite Maia!
Yes, I love him, too
I have written a story about him and Eärendil
Oh! I could read it?
Oh,it is excellent! Do you also think that Eonwe turns into a of prey? But why the Hawk? Why not an Eagle?
Because Manwe is an eagle, and Eonwe is his herold. Eagle is the king of birds, and Eonwe is not a king, although he serves one. And also because I read another excellent story about Eonwe where he was a hawk, and I liked that image. (Envoi - [link] ) But it's just a theory about them having such a form, nowhere in the books is said that they do (but neither is said that they don't ) And I'm glad you liked it!
Striking! - there's no way he's anything mortal.
