Finwë and Míriel

heartofoshun wrote a very early Silmarillion-setting story I liked.  It's called We Weren't Born to Follow, about the Tatyar, the not-yet-Noldor deciding under the stars whether to follow Finwë and journey West to Aman.   I loved the image of Míriel under starlight and the Noldor watching Finwë speak, his eyes full of light,  everything colored by starlight and firelight, so I tried to draw it.



As usual it looked better in my head than on the paper,  and better on the paper than as a photo, and better as a large photo than a small one... but there you go, that's the internet for you.
