Maglor sketch

Maglor son of Fëanor. He occupies rather a lot of pages in my sketchbook with some rather good portraits. I think Maedhros is getting jealous. (All there is of him in my sketchbook is after being captured, being tortured, being rescued with his hand cut off… you get the picture. I don’t know why, seriously.)

My colleagues all pity me as I have three free periods on Mondays… but I have to say they do come in handy. I can write down oral marks, mark vocab tests, go shopping, prepare the next lesson, and still get sketches done.

I’ll make this one available as special edition prints for Ring*Con! With some added whites done by hand.

  1. Love the expression of his eyes and the thickness of his eyebrows too! Make him appear sad yet very masculine and quite melancholic… Very Maglor-ish indeed ;)
    Truly hard to get to know why Maedhros has such a lack of cheerful drawings, really. i just can’t get the point of that, seriously…
    However, Beautiful as ever :) can’t wait to see your Earendil completed!

  2. your description had me laughing so hard that I started coughing again, I totally hate being sick, but I can always count on your art to brighten my day a little.

  3. I used to imagine Maglor with very straight hair until I first saw your portraits of him. For some reason he looks a lot more, how could I say, responsible and cuter, with this wavy hair. Just like him. I liked.

  5. How lovely! It reminds me a bit of a renaisance portrait I saw once, whose artist I can’t remember. But the wavy hair (who says that all elves must have sleek, straight hair?), brow line and the expressive eyes really are wonderful. :-)

    I enjoy your color work, but your pencil sketches really attract my attention!

    • I always found it strange that Peter Jackson’s Elves all have straight Pantène-hair. I’ve always found wavy hair to be far more attractive. My Elven designs all pre-date the movies, so I rarely do Pantène-hair. ;)
