Tumhalad by LB82 Tumhalad by LB82
A.K.A. that scene from the Silmarillion in which Gwindor gives Turin ONE job to do...


Then Gwindor said to Turin: 'Let bearing pay for bearing! But ill-fated was mine, and vain is thine; for my body is marred beyond healing, and I must leave Middle-earth. And though I love thee, son of Hurin, yet I rue the day that I took thee from the Orcs. But for thy prowess and thy pride, still I should have love and life, and Nargothrond should yet stand a while. Now if thou love me, leave me! Haste thee to Nargothrond, and save Finduilas. And this last I say to thee: she alone stands between thee and thy doom. If thou fail her, it shall not fail to find thee. Farewell!'

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Thank you!!  Hands can make or break a picture, so I generally try to devote at least as much time to them as to the faces.  :)

So sad, but yet so powerful.
One of the more emotional Tolkien works on DA.

There are many good things about this picture:
- Turin looks... almost emotionless, and yet so sad
- Gwindor's arm motion is perfect: ''Swear to me, Turin!''
- Dragon Helm is great
- Falling leaves are a great symbolism
- Gwindor's face really looks like a face of a man (or Elf) who is gonna die soon
- Armor pieces are nicely designed
