There will be blood. by Gold-Seven There will be blood. by Gold-Seven
For the first time in over a hundred years, Morgoth sends his forces to breach the leaguer the Noldor have drawn around Angband.

For the first time since his torture upon Thangorodrim and the subsequent loss of his hand, Maedhros is going into battle.

Not a single Orc will leave that battlefield alive.


From J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.

Dr Martin's liquid watercolours on Canson Montval paper. :deviation: I will never paint with anything else again.

Amazing! :D Also, I know exactly which products you used - I work at a local (for my area) art store, and we carry both the watercolours and the paper! :3 Can I ask which brushes you used as well? Just curious. I love all the details and the textures :)

All sorts of brushes, really. I have no idea which ones I may have used here. :)

I think I finally found a drawing of Maedhros that I actually like a lot so kudos to you.

Augh I love this so much.

Also.... your textures are just delicious.  I love that I can see the very stitches of the embroidered star.  :heart:

Was mir jetzt erst auffällt.... bei dem "aufgestiktn Stern" has tu dja wirklich darauf geachtet, dass das so klappen kann. Und Hut ab, an was du denkst, wenn du zeichnest (und ich hab noch überlegt, wie man einen Stern sticken könnte... wegen dem Chaos in der Mitte.... danke für die Lösung!)
