Love his face! It became my mental image for Turin's face! You are really good with faces.

I've been going back and forth between this drawing and the ones you did of Hurin and Morwen and somehow you made him look like both his mother and his father so that I can see that he is their son from the resemblance.  *VERY* nicely done.

This drawing comes closest to "my Túrin" of all the drawings, paintings, etc. I have ever seen of him. He looks so handsome and beautiful (despite his troubled look...) and yet manly and most importantly human. Also I love the helmet, because it doesn´t look like some super fantasy dragon helmet from outta space (hope you get what I mean, this exaggerated fantasy look), but rather realistic and historical.

You did an amazing job on this one!!! (all the others as well, actually ;P)

Хороши лица персонажей - не стилизованы и очень убедительны. Понравились ситуативные картины: The death of Glaurung, Doriath. Beleg and young Turin. Хотелось бы видеть больше таких картин.

I like the way you've depicted Túrin... he looks somewhat like David Conrad, from Ghost Whisperer; his features allow for a troubled look, as well as a more determined, sedate one (in your painting of Túrin and Finduilas).

Love to see it in color

Are you going to make a graphic novel of Tolkien's book? Because that would be awesome!!

I have started some color illustration series for Tolkien, so far I'm posting the sketches.
I believe that gouache will be the best technique for these paintings.
But it will take quite some time =)

Friends, many thanks for your warm feedbacks!

Yours,
Elena

It looks great even if it's sketchy. Will you finish it?

Thank you =)
But it is impossible to illustrate THE WHOLE Silmarillion, it's just unrealistic! =)
But I have certain ideas and will be adding the graphics as soon as they're done.
