I'm not so sure about this...
I may actually like the lineart more than the coloured picture, but since no matter how much I tweaked it it didn't seem to get better, I guess this will be the final piece
Here's the link to the bw version, which lacked some details but looks less like a mess, maybe [link]
This is Maedhros, from Tolkien’s Silmarillion. I just finished re-reading it for the umpteenth time, and all the nostalgia and love came back to overwhelm me again ;u;
Maedhros wasn’t a favourite of mine until this latest reading, to tell the truth. Not that I didn’t like him, he just wasn’t one of the ‘special ones’ for me. But now I feel like I’ve been blind, because I utterly loved his characterization, and now he really stands out for me. (I swear it's not just my red hair fetish) So…a little tribute! Even though he doesn’t really look like I imagine him : hard to depict.
To be fully immersed again in Tolkien's universe...it's such a beautiful feeling to rekindle
