Running Repairs to Vingilot



"What seems to be the problem?" I asked as we arrived – not to Eärendil, oh no, of course not to him. He was shining away in the prow, oblivious to all things. (Reluctant as I am to see any good in the shiny fools who don't maintain their celestial vessels, I must in all fairness consider the possibility that he's just permanently dazzled, perhaps even blind. It can't be good for your eyes to wear a star on your brow. But that's not really the point. He's still got ears, after all.)

"Rudder's broken," said the crew member who'd greeted us.

"And you can't fix it yourself?" I was surprised. Like I said, they're a good bunch of lads, Eärendil's crew.

"Not without resupplying," he said, "and we never stop in port. They are no ports up here. No shops. It really strains our ingenuity."

I should have drawn more crew really, but I find faces hard...

The colours in this are lovely, and the swoopiness of the composition (pardon my extremely inexpert appraisal) - it's very pleasing on the eye :)

Oh I really like this drawing.
The vessel is both whale-y and shell-y.

:-D

Lovely colours, and I love the contrast between the ethereal shiny shininess at the top right, and the practical work going on at the bottom right.

I love the lighting and colors on this one. Earendil has an appropriate overwhelming shininess to him.
