"Do not fear, children. I have you."
"Wh-wh-who ... ?"
"You may call me Russandol."
"Hush, child. Save your strength.
"Elurin … and your brother is Elured?"
"Mm-mmm h-h-hmmm. Wh-where ...?"
"We are going to a warm place."
"B-b-bad m-men ... t-t-tuh-took us-ss ..."
"They cannot reach you know. I have made sure of it."
"R-R-Russan-d-dol-l ... M-my b-b-broth-er ... Not m-m-movin-ing ..."
"He is still alive, child. We will take care of him. He is saving his strength, as you should also do."
"My brothers and I."
"N-N-Nan-na ... Ad-d-da ... g-g-g-gone ...?"
"Please, child, do not speak. We are nearly out of the snow."
"Yes. You are safe now. I will watch over you."
Another drawing from my Silmarillion AU where Maedhros finds his cinnamon rolls. Unfortunately, they're a little frozen, so now hes gotta microwave them once he gets back to Amon Ereb XD
Also, my previous AU drawing of these guys has a script, but I only put it on DeviantArt. But I think I'll start adding the scripts to these AU illustrations from now on (if there is one lol). They're quite fun to write!
"There were arrows and daggers, and the touch of them burned;
From players to slayers in an instant were turned
And the foreigner queen was the first to fall under the knife
With two arrows in him, the king crawled to her side
While his mother, she pleaded for the lord to subside
But he’d taken their word, and to break it meant no right to life"
This GOT song always reminds me of Maedhros for some reason. Maybe him remembering Feanor burning? Anyways, this is a small piece I did for my friend just now.

A flat color comission/request for outofangband on tumblr! They wanted Fingolfin and Maedhros from The Silmarillion. I personally love how they portray their uncle-nephew bond in their writings.

Things You Might Not Know... •Elrond was the son of Eärendil and Elwing, and a great-grandson of Lúthien, born in Beleriand in the First Age, making him well over 6,000 years old by the time of the events described in The Lord of the Rings. •Elrond's twin brother was Elros Tar-Minyatur, the first High King of Númenor.
•Although Elrond was considered half-elven, that was not meant to be an exact percentage value. Through Lúthien, daughter of Melian the Maia, he and his brother Elros were also descended from the Maiar, angelic beings who had come to Middle-earth thousands of years before. Both his mother and his father had mixed human-elf ancestry, and as a result Elrond himself was 6/16 human, 9/16 elf and 1/16 Maia. Elrond, along with his parents, his brother, and his children, were granted a choice between Elven or human fates by the Valar. Elrond chose to live as an immortal Elf, while his twin Elros chose the mortality of Men.
•As documented in The Silmarillion, Elrond was born in the First Age at the refuge of the Mouths of Sirion in Beleriand.
Not long afterwards the havens were destroyed by the sons of Fëanor, who captured Elrond and his brother Elros. Their parents feared that they would be killed, but instead they were befriended by Fëanor's sons Maedhros and Maglor. Like his parents but unlike his brother, Elrond chose to be counted among the Elves when the choice of kindreds was given to him. When Beleriand was destroyed at the end of the First Age, Elrond went to Lindon with the household of Gil-galad, the last High King of the Noldor.
•During the War of the Elves and Sauron in the Second Age, Gil-galad sent Elrond to the defence of Eregion against Sauron.
Sauron destroyed Eregion and surrounded Elrond's army, but Durin and Amroth attacked Sauron's rearguard, causing the Dark Lord to turn and drive them back to Moria.
Elrond was able to retreat north to a secluded valley, where he established the refuge of Imladris, later called Rivendell.
Maedhros, also called Maedhros the Tall,was one of the princes of the Ñoldor, the eldest of the seven Sons of Fëanor and head of the House of Fëanor following the death of his father in Middle-earth. He was extraordinarily renowned for his skill both as a warrior and as a diplomat. For hundreds of years, he led his House against the forces of Morgoth but the Oath that he and his six brothers had sworn to recover the Silmarils constrained him and ultimately led to his death.
» Armor mainly done and ready for 'Tolkien Tag' 🙌 finally 🙏 I did NOT make the upper leg guards myself, I bought them, just to clarify 😛 the rest is selfmade (except sword and le wig xD) and was a hussle at times but in the end it was definitely worth it I believe 🙌 «

When I said "addictive", I think I meant that. All the preciousssesss!
Really cool things are happening - pin design is such fun! I really struggled with drawing cleanly in Photoshop until I remembered the Lazy Nezumi plugin I always heard my digital artist friend talk about, and suddenly this goes so smoothly.
Eight days left to sign up for an exclusive Maedhros pin - link in my bio! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #maedhros#fingolfin#finarfin#kingfisher#pins#artistpins#pindesign#silmarillion#tolkien#tolkienart#feanor
