His hair and his beard are just perfect, also the expression and handsome traces - I just wish there were a lot more bearded wonders like this in Tolkien illustrations (sorry, I love beards)!!

Will certainly look forward! Tolkien men kings and Numenor amaze me - your Aranarth looks exactly as noble as his name!

Прям русский князь! Жалко я текст не читала ничего не могу сказать(
замахнулась бы ты на какого нибудь исторического персонажа, Пересвета например, чего-то русского охота, у тебя должно очень здорово выйти!

Для пересветов тоже понадобится вдохновляющее разъяснение в виде фанфиков))  А так персонаж предстаёт очень прям достойный, заслуживающий внимания.

Ха, вот уж не знаю пишут ли фанфики про Пересвета, но оно того бы стоило! Намутил бы кто славянского фэнтэзи с элементами исторического реализма, что ли)
ну это да, нужно эпохой увлечься, погрузиться и все такое...

А вот интересная ведь тема! Но если только это делать вдумчиво, чтоб по канону, и в каноне накопать захватывающих деталей, а не а-ля волкодав...

Ну прям как Павел Рыженко что ли?
Я тоже не за Волкодава, когда дело касается истории, но если очень много думать так можно напугаться сверхзадачи и вовсе ничего не сделать)

Your drawings are always so powerful..he looks like in thought, yet incredibly strong and grim!
The drawing itself is amazing. The shadings are perfect to my eyes, and the anatomy seems just right!
Wonderful work, as always! :clap:

Very beautiful work on details and on the character 's expressiveness, as always!!

I saw your Melkor and I can not resist, I want to write my impressions about it. It is beautiful and when I read that it is a fan fiction illustration I would not have said. Your drawing is very canonical, there is something disturbing, but the features of his face are plausible with what was described by Tolkien. But we come to the point; I was very impressed by the interpretation and your explanation of the psychological involvement perspective. It is very difficult to work with detachment from what is one's thoughts on things. You are able to do so. Melkor is the protagonist of the Silmarillion, my favorite character and I, however, I can not work on him with the necessary detachment. Not admiration but, more likely, compassion and understanding; the result of these my feelings is a "softened" representation, perhaps, much as I would like him to be rather than as him "should" be. Anyway, congratulations, I think your Melkor has already made inroads into the hearts of many fans !! Great work!

Thank you very much, dear Brunilde!   
About my rendition of Melkor, -it was truly hard work for me, to try seeng his face and draw him with detachement, without hate, fear or admiration. But when I tryed to understand him and his reasons it was hard to not tune into the beat of compassion or admiration. I'm happy if you think that this challenge is successful!^^
And in this work only part was inspired by fanfic, -his crown, I found wery impressional description of creation this crown.

Really successful !! You have made a great job even with the crown, in fact, its edges are sharp, very sharp . The jewelry design is very accurate. L 'together turns out to be as cold as ice, I do not know how to say; cold and terrifying, majestic 👍😊 ^^

У него очень шерстяной, прекрасно фактурный плащ! А еще на предыдущей иллюстрации, где двое и сосульки, у вас был совершенно прекрасный мокрый замерзший мех, очень натуральный. Замечательно!
