Leaving mortal shores by Sirielle Leaving mortal shores by Sirielle
© Karolina Węgrzyn

The Age of Stars, Sun yet has to be made. Olwë in Beleriand, looking across the sea towards the Undying Lands. Soon his Lindar will follow West. Inspired by The Silmarillion.

Two lords they had, for their numbers were very great: Elwë Singollo, which signifies Greymantle, and Olwë his brother. The hair of Olwë was long and white, and his eyes were blue; but the hair of Elwë was grey as silver, and his eyes were as stars; he was the tallest of all the Elven-folk.

J. R. R. Tolkien, Morgoth's Ring, The Later Quenta Silmarillion: "Of the Coming of the Elves", p. 163

[Painter 9.5, tablet.]

Thank you :thanks: I'm fond of all these features of his face, too. Only couldn't work out his mouth as I wanted, but perhaps it's just what he looks like or what the situation forced him to ;)

You've done such an amazing job painting him; his expression and the depth to his eyes to the detail of his hair.
Amazing job! :heart:

There's a lot of emotion behind those eyes, I bet - and he gorgeous yet somehow adorable. I want to touch his hair.
