Maglor son of Feanor by Gold-Seven Maglor son of Feanor by Gold-Seven
Maglor is probably one of the saddest characters in the Silmarillion. He was the only one of Feanor's sons who was ever willing to rescind the Oath of Feanor but was still bound by it, and even though he's not a character we ever explicitly learn very much about , it is obvious how much he suffered under the terrible deeds he committed himself for the Oath. I wanted to convey the compassion and the pain and deep sorrow that is Maglor... and try out a green colour scheme for once.

Watercolour and Photoshop.

I am amazed, he is one of the reasons I brought a harp to learn to play it! :)

My favourite part is the gold on the top of his right sleeve...

He is so sad... I feel really bad for him. Did you know that your picture is featured on the Lotr wiki? I love this pic. It's really gorgeous.

Then he was left wandering all alone around the Shores, singing laments, forever it seems. Which sucks incredibly.
Damn you FŽanor you ruined your sons lives!!!

Stunning design of the clothing. I especially love the gold leaves on his sleeves. I am a little disappointed in his face, but luckily you've improved the design since then :)
