"And after Celgorm Curufin spoke, more softly but with no less power, conjuring in the minds of the Elves a vision of war and the ruin of Nargothrond. So great a fear did he set in their hearts that never after until the time of Túrin would any Elf of that realm go into open battle..."(167)(From The Silmarillion, by JRR Tolkien)This is far short of a crowd, but my first drawing of some characters are here. From left to right, the characters are, Finrod, Beren (work in progress), Curufin, Celebrimbor, Celegorm, Orodreth and part of Edrahil. This scene in the book involves Curufin, telling everyone not to get involved in the Quest of the Silmaril. There are mixed reactions, from Orodreth's fear to Celebrimbor's silent disapproval.
