Maglor is probably one of the saddest characters in the Silmarillion. He was the only one of Feanor's sons who was every willing to rescind the Oath of Feanor but was still bound by it, and even thought he's not a character we ever explicitly learn very much about , it is obvious how much he suffered under the terrible deeds he committed himself for the Oath. I wanted to convey the compassion and the pain and deep sorrow that is Maglor... and try out a green colour scheme for once. Been doing too much red, blue, and purple!

Watercolour and Photoshop.

Please note: I won't be replying to comments here (for reasons, see my main page). If you have a question, see my FAQ first, and if it's not answered there, drop me an email. ;)

That’s strange. This picture most closely resembles a character in one of my stories (not published on Elfwood (yet)). It’s quite good 2
