Maglor and Maedhros by ElbenherzArt Maglor and Maedhros by ElbenherzArt
Black and white Concept Art for my Silmarillion themed animation movie I'm working on. Not really satisfied with Maedhros but deadline is deadline. A fact, that I ignored with Maglor and now I'm having too less time for Celegorm again. :D
The other sons of Feanor will follow.

That's an interesting instrument for Maglor! I haven't seen him have one like that in any other illustration; but he definitely must have known how to play more instrumens than the harp. I like it :)

Yeah I only saw with a harp in other images and I thought it's nice to give him something else. :)
Glad you like it. :)

The shorter, slightly more military-looking clothing suits Maedhros. I take it he's pre-Thangorodrim here, since he's still got both his hands.

Is that an erhu Maglor's playing? I think it looks like a combination of an erhu, a violin and a shamisen LOL.

It's a Morin Khuur, or horsehead fiddle, a traditional mongolian instrument.

And now, due to being a bit fascinated by that instrument and wondering how it would be held and played, I looked. I was going to ask about it, but someone in the Comments gave me what I needed to Google.
Soo... needless to say, obviously this deviation is pretty cool. 8-)

I absolutely love the fact that Maglor has a morin khuur

Ah yes, I love the sound of it. Maglor is most of the time shown with a harp, what is nice as well, but I'm sure he is able to play a looooot of instruments. :)

He has no apperance in my movie so I probably won't do a design for him for a very long time. But he is along in the list with the rest of Tolkien's characters for other projects. :)
Thank you. :)

I'm planning on puplishing it but I have no idea when. At the moment it's far from finished and still tons of work to do. :D

 Also, if you enjoy reading, I am authoring a tale based on Tolkien's universe and would be honored if a successful artist offered feedback chapter by chapter.

I am willing to do commissions I.e short stories/poetry, if so.  :)

Sure. Do you already have it online somewhere? I can't promise I have much time for reading it but I'm curious about the story and at least want to take a look. :)
