Maedhros by grzegoszwu Maedhros by grzegoszwu
Maedhros is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. First introduced in The Silmarillion and later mentioned in Unfinished Tales and The Children of Húrin, he is one of the most enduring characters in The Silmarillion, and has been the subject of paintings by artists such as Jenny Dolfen and Alan Lee. This is my version of Maedhros, the high King of Noldor. His Armor is an early version of the elven armor seen in The Lord of The Rings movie trilogy. Maedhros lived a long time before the Fellowship of the Ring existed, so his equipment looks more like an ancient stuff.

This is one of my numerous sketches for Silmarillion. This book inspires me every time i read it, and I read it frequently.

you know, of all the artwork I've seen, this one strikes me as a really good approach for what came before the development of the more recent second-third age eldar armor designs we saw in the movies. And so far, I haven't seen a better concept! That's saying something! Well done!

Thanks a lot! You gave me a huge push to further work. I have near 100 of sketches like that - concepts for Silmarillion, and I'd like to share them all, but first i want to remake them as a digital art and correct some details. I think after what I read I just need to do something about this today :D (Big Grin) Thank You for appreciation.

Thanks a lot :) I'm doing my best, I have at least a hundred of these conceptual arts, and they are very important to me.

The costume seems as though it were sown from leaves of a huge tree! Amazing design :D
