Silmarillion compilation by Gerwell Silmarillion compilation by Gerwell
I re-read The Silmarillion recently and with all the excitation for The Hobbit I'm in a mood for some fanart. :p

From left to right: Sauron > Varda > Manw > Fanor > Enw > Sauron (again) > Beleg.

All of them J.R.R Tolkien

Look at your petite little Hathor-Varda.   Also, LOVE your blonde Sauron, especially that little smudge of red eyeshadow in the corners of his eyes.  Wonderful!

Wow, the fan girl in me suddenly burst with so many emotions and memories when I saw this awesome fanart. I've read the Silmarillion and loved it, but I need to recap some things so I have to re read it. This gave me the boost I needed to do so. Off to read! Oh, and off to follow you on tmbler!

these are some great depictions, and also drawn really well!  interestingly enough I envisioned Sauron the same way without the armor, when he took on a Fair form.  Even the Blonde Hair. lol great job!

Awesome!  I especially love the image of Sauron submitting himself to Eonwe.  Not only is this an extremely unique (and excellently done!) piece of art, but its physical properties are especially good.  The way the armour sits on Eonwe, the weight of his sword, is done in a way that somehow conveys the -feel- of its sturdy harnessing.  Just fantastic.  Also, I love that he's holding a banner -- nice touch.

Varda looks soooo cool with this Ancient Egyptian look! And I very much like the armour of Eonwe *gg*
Sauron is the first version where I think "yeah, this might fit!"
