Aure entuluva by Gold-Seven
Aure entuluva

Last of all Húrin stood alone. Then he cast aside his shield, and wielded an axe two-handed; and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered, and each time that he slew he cried: ‘Aurë entuluva! Day shall come again!’ Seventy times he uttered that cry; but they took him at last alive, by the command of Morgoth, for the Orcs grappled him with their hands, which clung to him still though he hewed off their arms; and ever their numbers were renewed, until at last he fell buried beneath them. Then Gothmog bound him and dragged him away to Angband with mockery.
Thus ended the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, as the sun went down beyond the sea. Night fell in Hithlum, and there came a great storm of wind out of the West.

Tutorials on Patreon by Gold-Seven
Tutorials on Patreon
Thank you, everyone who has already checked out my Patreon (or even chosen to support me there)! In this past four days, you've sponsored me to a wonderful 400$ a month. That means two of the first milestones are already accomplished! :hug:

www.patreon.com/jennydolfen

For 1$ a month, you can see sketches and wips before anyone else - and for 5$, you can request tutorials and get access to exclusive Patron tuts like this, and get the chance to win commissions and original art. 

If you think, 1$ a month? What good is that going to be? - if you want to support me, please just do it anyway! :) A lot of people helping out a little goes a long way. :heart:

It would mean a lot to me - you're helping me to actually turn my art into a living. Feel free to add your own ideas for rewards, too!

Speed now this feathered shaft by Gold-Seven
Speed now this feathered shaft
Maedhros therefore, being in anguish without hope, begged Fingon to shoot him with his bow; and Fingon strung an arrow, and bent his bow. And seeing no better hope he cried to Manwë, saying: ‘O King to whom all birds are dear, speed now this feathered shaft, and recall some pity for the Noldor in their need!’

A huge thank you for the wonderful reference photo to :iconrobynrose:

It's been two months off dA, but I've been very, very happy to see so many of you connect with me on Facebook, Tumblr, or my blog. Thank you so, so much for your ongoing support and digital companionship over the years. 

Several of you asked whether I had a Patreon that you could use to support me, and connect with me there as well. I've spent the last few weeks (well, on and off) putting together a Patreon account - and am now happy to share it here!

www.patreon.com/jennydolfen

Patreon is a site where you can support artists you like creating stuff that you love. It works a little like an ongoing Kickstarter - the pledges start much lower, and the rewards (prints, tutorials, original art, commissions...) are ongoing, too.

It's a dream of mine to be able to work as an artist full-time. Patreon gives me the chance to try if it can work. If you can imagine supporting me - starting as low as 1$ per month - head over and see what's in store for you in return! :)

This is still very experimental, and if you have any more good ideas for rewards or stuff to do and share in the patrons' feed, please let me know!

Ahhh, ich habe dich grade durch Zufall entdeckt, weil ich deinen Stil erkannt habe auf der "Beliebt seit x-Stunden"-Seite :heart:

Ich finde deine Bilder superklasse :)

"Beliebt seit"? Hätte gar nicht gedacht, dass ich da noch auftauche, weil ich nur noch ein Fünftel der Faves kriege wie vor zwei Jahren - aber das scheint eine allgemeine Entwicklung zu sein, viele der Top Faves eines Tages hatten früher an die 6000. Heute reichen schon 200. :D

"Popular 8 hours" heißt das genau. Den Rückgang kann ich aber btw auch bestätigen, ist bei mir genau dasselbe. :)

Your paintings give me a good feeling, which may seem a strange thing to say, but they really make me feel better. :nod: Stunning gallery.

Hello! I am not sure whether you remember me. I asked for your permission to translate your fanfiction Spark into Chinese in 2012. I reread it today and it moved me just more! And I suddenly realize that I did not give you the link to my translation.

I posted on my bolg: frommidworld.lofter.com/post/2…
and a Silmarillion forum: tieba.baidu.com/p/1769653420

My fellow Silmarillion fans in China really love the story! I guess you don't read Chinese but you can see there are many comments and they are long! Thank you again for writing such a great story and all the gorgeous art pieces!

Whee, thank you! It's funny to see those English terms and names sprinkled into the Chinese. Thank you for doing this, and for sharing!

Hello I noticed that you had several great images depicting Hannibal, therefore as Carthage is a predacessor to modern-day Tunisia, I posted a note on the comments section of a group called TunisianDeviants recommending to the group to consider requesting to put your images of Hannibal into their gallery.

After I posted that I noticed that the group may be inactive, I am not certain though.

Anyway I just wanted to help out expanding the scope of galleries your images could be in. :)

Thanks a lot! I appreciate the kind words, as well as the invitation to the Italian History group. However, I'm no longer very active on dA and have decided not to join any new groups. I'm happy to let you add anything you feel fits the group, though! :)

Hey, good to see you're still posting after all (at least for now). I randomly ran across your work just a few days ago, and promptly started watching you. Of course, right after that was when I read your journal.

I understand your frustrations, but I'm glad to see you haven't abandoned dA altogether yet. I hope you continue to share your work here, too. It's a delight for me to see new notifications of your work pop up in my inbox. Big Grin

Your latest works are worthy of you.  That's as high a praise as I can give them, for you are truly among the very best of the best.  The shot of Glorfindel and Elrond is just heart-wrenching, and you 'get' the Romans.

Oh, dangit; I hadn't realized you were getting so many junk messages. Aaaarghh! I'm so sorry to hear people have been such incredibly rude idiots.

Please, PLEASE do continue to post your art here; I don't have time to check dozens of individual art sites every day, and I'm selfish enough to want to see your amazing and beautiful work despite my laziness. (Okay, I'm not making much of a case for myself here, am I. But still...!)

A lot of people echoed what you said :) And as long as nobody blames me for posting and running, I suppose I'm fine with it.

By "posting and running" you are sharing your talent and the beautiful, amazing works that talent generates with a great many folks here on DA.  Each of us who watches you is greatful for this, or darn well should be.  As someone who watches rather than produces art, I am unaware of the hassling artists like you apparently receive.  For what it's worth, I offer my condolences and, once again, my thanks for sharing your art.
