Prayer of Fingon by tuuliky Prayer of Fingon by tuuliky
Maedhros, being in anguish without hope, begged Fingon to shoot him. Fingon, seeing no better hope, strung his bow and cried to Manwe "O King to whom all birds are dear, speed now this feathered shaft, and recall some pity for the Noldor in their need!".

His prayer was answered swiftly, for Manwe had commanded a watch upon Morgoth as he held still some pity for the Elves in exile. Even as Fingon bent his bow, Thorondor, King of Eagles, flew down from the high airs, and staying Fingon's hand, bore him to the precipice where his friend hung...

Пошла учиться рисовать... Просто здорово. Ваша последняя серия иллюстраций к Сильмариллиону мне очень понравилась. А заодно напомнила, что сама я что-то давно за эту тему не бралась...

Ну, это не совсем иллюстрации, просто так, рисуночки :))
И вы тоже рисуйте. Чем больше рисуешь, тем лучше получается!

Fingon's hair is so wonderfully drawn (the braids!), and his face--he looks so determined, instead of despairing, which really adds an entirely different feel to his prayer, and which I really like. His clothes look rich but also like they'd make sense to go climbing mountains with, and the eagle is great too. I've been really enjoying these Fingon-centric art pieces :)
