Two pictures

I put a short scene in my Silmarillion-based Hithlum story, Golden Light, where various Elves get rather drunk (and Hador doesn't) and they end up inventing the Tralalalally song.  Still trying to practice / improve drawing /painting, I decided to try drawing the events:

1: Fingon and Maedhros playing an unwise knife game that seemed likely to leave them with even fewer fingers between them:

I'm not sure if Maedhros's scars (on face and wrist) actually look like scars or just flaws in the painting. Since this is in Hithlum, Maedhros is diplomatically wearing fairly minimal silver jewellery, and a fairly plain shirt, and Fingon is rather more dressed up in gold and gems.

2: Lalwen with her hair coming down, leaning on her brother Fingolfin (who is amused) and laughing at Cirdan.  I may try to paint this later.

Next painting: Finrod, Maglor and Hador attempting to render House of Marach improvised songs into a language that all of them speak, without any great success.

    Ages ago I offered a painting in a charity auction. The winning bidder requested a camping scene from Garth Nix's Old Kingdom books. I sketched…

  • I paint a box

    I bought the wooden box unfinished (it's made of pine) and painted it. It might look a bit better if I had not packed the electric sander away…
