Atrabeth Finrod Ah Andreth by Annathelle26 Atrabeth Finrod Ah Andreth by Annathelle26
'For one year, one day, of the flame I would have given all:
kin, youth, and hope itself: adaneth I am,' said Andreth.
'That he knew,' said Finrod; 'and he withdrew and did not
grasp what lay to his hand: elda he is.'

.........
'Will he be there, bright and tall, and the wind in his hair?
Tell him. Tell him not to be reckless. Not to seek danger beyond
need!'
'I will tell him,' said Finrod. 'But I might as well tell thee not
to weep. He is a warrior, Andreth, and a spirit of wrath. In
every stroke that he deals he sees the Enemy who long ago did
thee this hurt.'


Happy birthday :icongwenniel:!!! :hug: I don't know what time is now in Finland, but I hope you have (or had) an amazing time celebrating your birthday!^^

"Atrabeth Finrod Ah Andreth" is a wonderful story, it always touched me a lot...
This amateur-ish drawing of course doesn't do this story proper justice, but I felt inspired nonetheless:)
And for those of you who don't know: no, this is not
Finrod
in the picture, it is Aegnor.

Andreth and Aegnor belong to J.R.R. Tolkien

Oooh... This is beautiful, but so heartbreaking... Especially Aegnor's expression.

"Heartbraking" was what my aim was, yes. This word characterizes their story perfectly.

Thank you!:)

Indeed. Most of the stories of the Silmarillion are sad. But very beautiful too...

Αχ ναι, κι εμενα μ'αρεσει πολυ αυτο! Ειναι μια πολυ καλη μεθοδος να τονιζεις τα υπολοιπα, αυτα που δεν βρισκονται στο background. Ιδιαιτερα αν εινα ανοιχτα χρωματα (βλ. πως ξεχωριζουν τα μαλλια του Αεγκνορ εδω).
Θα στο δειξω σιγουρα!:dance:

Thank you! :love: It's such a lovely scene, but alongside those quotes it is heartbreaking.
I have several times planned to draw something like this but never got to do it so I'm glad you did. It looks wonderful. Did I mention how I like Andreth's hair?

Thank you so much! I'm delighted you like it!:hug: It would be interesting to see your version of this scene too.
When I was drawing, I kept changing the position of Andreth's hair. First, I made them flowing in the wind towards Aegnor, then towards the opposite direction. And then I decided that I didn't want to have wind in this scene. So this was the final version^^

I have actually been working with something on Aegnor and Andreth. A bit different scene, but anyway. Not finished quite yet, but I will upload it.
It looks good. Flowing hair is difficult, because if it flows because of a wind, then all the others' hairs should be flowing as well.

Ok then. I'll wait to see it!:eager:

I love drawing flowing hair. But, as you said, everyone else's need to flow too, and I didn't want Aegnor's to flow.
