Noldolante... by Hemhet Noldolante... by Hemhet
"Great was the sorrow of Eärendil and Elwing for the ruin of the havens of Sirion, and the captivity of their sons, and they feared that they would be slain; but it was not so. For Maglor took pity upon Elros and Elrond, and he cherished them, and love grew after between them, as little might be thought; but Maglor's heart was sick and weary with the burden of the dreadful oath."
(J.R.R. Tolkien "Silmarillion")

How did know Elros and Elrond the truth? Perhaps they accidentally heard the Noldolante.
On the wall some drawing from their childhood, and the lines on the jamb show, how much they grew during the years.

This is my entry for the Between the Lines contes. ([link])

That drawing is really beautiful.
You caught the atmosphere perfectly and the colours work wonderfully together.
I love the story of Maglor and the twins (unfortunatley it's only briefly mentioned...) and I was wondering how they found out about Maglors past.
I totally support your idea of them hearing the Noldolante.

Great work Clap

Sad ,silent and beautiful:(
The coat of arms of the house of Fingolfin and the banner of a Feanorian star that is no longer used...

Thank you.
I wanted to show with the banner, that there were battles, where Maedhros and Maglor fought.
The coat-of-arms over the fireplace belongs to Feanor.

As always, I love your attention to detail. Not only the character's expressions but also their surroundings reveal so much of what's going on.
Hemhet Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2013
Thank you, I'm happy that you noticed the details.
It would be interesting sometime upload a drawing without description, and see how many can find out, what's going on ;)
