Maedhros and Maglor in Ossiriand

After the Nírnaeth Arnoediad, the sons of Fëanor were driven out of the March of Maedhros and the lands south of it down into Osgiliath where they lived among the Green-elves.

They were there for at least twenty-four years, since the next we hear of them is the attack on Doriath, so I'm assuming that they didn't spend the whole time sleeping under trees, but built some sort of houses, although I think those would be smaller and more rustic than traditional Noldorin architecture, hence the natural wood archway.

The composition of this isn't quite right because I drew Maedhros first just to see if I could get the pose right then had to put Maglor behind him in order to get him to fit the paper.  Probably you are supposed to think about composition *first*.  Oh well.

I like it. It looks to me as if Maglor might have started playing to ease Maedhros out of a gloomy mood and as if that had in fact worked--that attentive and slightly surprised look.

He certainly looks like he's about to do something or make up his mind to something, doesn't he?

I'm hoping the making up his mind doesn't involve Doriath. Not quite yet, anyway.

"Hi Maglor, I've just had this brilliant idea how to pass the afternoon, how about another spot of kinslaying?"
Probably not--he really doesn't look quite doomy enough for that, I think.

These auto-comments make me laugh. I suppose LJ has relatively few English-language public posts now, but still. Presumably they assign these on clickthroughs? Tt must be so disappointing for complete strangers to click on this link and find nothing but my indifferent amateur fanart.

I am sorry anonymous internet strangers! I am working on my painting! Maybe one day I will paint something that is really well worth visiting. :-D
