Rúmil writing the Ainulindale

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Michel Rousseau

There was Noldorin scholar from the glorious city of Tirion, back in the days of Aman, his name was Rúmil. He was the first to devise a writing system for his language and wrote many religious works. His most famous was the world-creation myth Ainulindale ('Great music of the Ainur') after his communication with them. This picture drawn in pencil tries to give out the solitary-concentrating atmosphere of the supposedly Rúmil's room in Tirion. I paid attention to his vertical Rúmilean writing system, which is shown on the paper he is writing on. Note : sigh... in the time i was drawing this, I was thinking that Rúmil was a Vanya (fair haired). Recently I learned that he is a Noldo (dark haired)! Oh well!
