Maedhros the Tall by tuuliky Maedhros the Tall by tuuliky
...There Maedhros in time was healed; for the fire of life was hot within him, and his strength was of the ancient world, such as those possessed who were nurtured in Valinor. His body recovered from his torment and became hale, but the shadow of his pain was in his heart; and he lived to wield his sword with left hand more deadly than his right had been...

This is my favorite representation of Maedhros. So gaunt and haunting... but lovely.

Wow, you can actually see "the shadow of pain" that "was in his heart" upon his very countenance!

That's pretty much the way I imagine Maedhors looks. You did a great job on his expression too.

I really like this depiction of him... I specially like his features and the hint of colour you can see on his hair and what's seen of his clothes.

That is how I imagine that would be a "real" portrait of him...

Great job.

I just looked at it again, because I'm doing a Maedhros fan-fiction, and I can't even tell you how perfect it is. It's so realistic and the perfect style, like everyone's said, it's exactly as I pictured him. He's my favorite Silmarillion character.

The Sons of Feanor are some of my favorite characters in Tolkien's Silmarillion, and you definitely do them justice with your drawings! Once again, the expression is excellent, it really looks like Maedhros!

His expression... You can see pain & sorrow, but also determination. Definitely Maedhros. You do an amazing job at depicting the Elves. :)
