Utulie'n Aure by Gold-Seven Utulie'n Aure by Gold-Seven
"Utúlie'n Aurë! Aiya Eldalië ar Atanatari, utúlie'n Aurë!" - "The day has come! Behold, people of the Eldar and Fathers of Men, the day has come!"

J. R. R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion


Fingon's battle cry to herald the Fifth battle of Beleriand must have been echoed in the East, where Maedhros mustered his army of Elves and Men to join his kinsman in the West.

Little did he know that, not two days later, his army would be wiped out, and all hopes of the Elves and Men of Middle-earth to defeat the Dark Lord were forever buried.

I felt like doing a piece specifically for my blog header [link] - I'd been using "Gathering of crows" but it didn't really fit the dimensions. And it was too pink.

Pencil, some watercolour wash and parchment background added in Photoshop (texture is mine).

Gott, this passage, just this one sentence!! Nirnaeth Arnoediad is so tragically beautiful! The hope of Fingon, this amazing cry always break my heart, because of the sorrowful end. I love the elves, they are fair and majestic!

I drew the entire battle once. Lost the sketch. Spent hours working on it made the entire battlefield with hills on both sides and tol sirion in the distance. *sigh*

Eeeeek! This is so great! I love all of your work, but this one is one of my favorites! I'm thirteen, and your art has really gotten me into water colors and even painting with coffee. Thank you for being so unbelievably awesome!

Oh, Maedhros (and Maglor, right?), why must you two be so lovely, and yet so... fictional. >_<
