I haven't drawn on pastel paper in eight or nine years - because my dratted old scanner didn't pick anything up on those. Now it finally occurred to me that I might try them again... And I love the result!
Maedhros. Either pre-Thangorodrim or... I have finally caved in and given him long hair. And then there was always that copper circlet that Tolkien said he wore and that would never really fit with his old hairstyle.
Don't give me any gleeful "I told you so's" please. I'm feeling bad enough as it is.
Maedhros son of FŽanor is from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.
Pencil, white pencil and white gouache on pastel paper.
