One more week until The Hobbit hits theatres! :D To celebrate... here's something from the Silmarillion instead. LOL

Everyone else has already done a version of this, but I hadn't jumped on board yet, so... here 'tis.


Colored pencil and Copics on tinted paper, 8 1/2 x 11".

I really like this version with, as you say, "less going on", because it's almost exactly like my first time seeing the sea - all around variations on grey and white, and all the vastness of empty space. It's beautiful, nostalgic and sad - very fitting.

Thanks so much!  I wanted the colors to match the tone of the scene, after all the battle and death was over and it was all for nothing... cold and empty seemed to fit more than anything else, and I'm glad it conveys that.  :)

Thanks again!!  More to come, when I get around to finishing a few pics...

Very beautiful and emotional work! One can really feel the wind and hear the sea while looking at this picture. I could stare at it for hours...

Thank you! :hug: It was actually harder to try and depict the softer gradations of the sea than some of the brighter, higher-contrast images, even though there seems to be less going on visually in this picture. But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. :)

Hahaha! There are a few versions out there, but I didn't look too closely at them until after I'd finished this, since I didn't want to subconsciously copy anyone. :)

Glad you like it!!
