This is a beautiful rendered interpretation. I love the contrast in size and coloring (even though I imagined Beleg as dark-haired). There is so much hope (there is little enough of that in Turin's story) in this picture and caring. It a very evocative scene. Thank you so much for shaing.

It is a dreadful thought that *SPOILER* eventually that little boy was to stab his friend and teacher to death... *shiver*

By the way, is there a Nellas drawing/painting on the way?

First of all, thank you for your kind feedback =)
And yes, I'm planning to paint Nellas as well, although the original idea is to portray her from back. So far =)

This is beautiful. And I don't think I've ever seen an image of these two together before. Especially Turin as a young boy.

I really like the nature in Autumn colours. Not very often one sees Tolkien-related art set in that time of the year.

This is wonderful, really. The colours are beautiful - and I like the way Turin's tunic's hue echoes that of the tree. And the details. It's quite stunning, and there is something very calming about your work.
Though now I can't help but feeling sad, thinking about how it'd all end.
