Silmarillion+ Manwe by Leyla-Lovely Silmarillion+ Manwe by Leyla-Lovely
I'm rereading The Silmarillion at the moment.
The new Hobbit movie set new fire to my Tolkien passion so I really got in the mood to draw some Valar. :D
I'm planing to draw all the "main" Valar. Let's see if I manage it. :P

I hope you can recognize the feathered wings on Manwe's circlet. I thought it would be a good idea since he loves strong winged birds of prey.

Sooo hope you like it! :)
And yeah.. he's calling up a baby tornado. :D

I love how his eyes are completely blue like the sky. I find the valar hard to depict

Just gorgeous! As it happens I'm rereading the Silmarillion, then going on to Unfinished Tales and then all the rest of the posthumous Tolkien work. I've read LOTR and the Hobbit many times, but the Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales only once, and the rest not at all. A major project…but I am therefore browsing a lot of the Tolkien-inspired art on DA. :)

I've always enjoyed pics of the Valar!

Hope you plan to do Namo as well!

Nice!I like the eyes, makes him look very god-like and at the same time you can see he designed his body from the elves (or however I should put it).
I am also re-reading Silmarillion atm :D

Thanks a lot! =) Yeah, I thought that adding glow to his eyes would make him look more like a "god". Otherwise he would just look like a normal elf.
Yeeah =) It seems that everybody is in a Silmarillion fever. XD
