Silmarillion sketch page II by Gold-Seven Silmarillion sketch page II by Gold-Seven
Been away on a class trip with one hundred and twenty-six twelve-year-olds.*

Drawing Silmarillion was the only way to cling to sanity.

Though the two dragon sketches at the bottom were definitely helped along by the mental state I was in last night.

* (We were eight teachers, but it was still a rather exhausting affair.)

Top: Several Maglor sketches accompanied by frolicking horses.
Middle: A contemplative FŽanor.
Bottom: A battle-ready Fingon and a sad Fingon with Glaurung (right) and Ancalagon the Black (left).

So, the next time I fail at terrifying dragons, all I need to push the mojo is a few dozen pre-pubescents. Yay.

Pencil on Canson Mi-teintes pastel paper.

You should go on more field trips. Those dragons are amazing. :XD:

These are so good! I love Maglor and Fingon's expression, but your Feanor kind of blows my mind! The eyes especially are amazing - and I like the haircut you've given him. It seems to me that Feanor wouldn't have been the sort to go for long, flowing hair. Also, how is it that the paper is so long? Is it all a long roll or is it different sheets Photo-shopped together?

With all of the armor ect you draw--I would have expected you to love Loki and Thor's outfits from Thor and Avengers! Do you not like movies?

I'm not a great fan of Marvel heroes. I enjoy a few movies in that regard - mostly, Spider-man - but never enough to draw them.

the dragon on the left looks fine, but the one on the right seems to have no skull, and no jaw, behind his eyes. his lower jaw seems to start at the same point at which the mouth opens, which seems a little weird.
dont get me wrong your sketches are amazing otherwise, I cant even begin to draw people or the things that clothe them like you can ;)

It was just a three minute sketch trying to make him as disgusting as possible. ;)
