The Wolf Spirit was slayed by his foes. Aash, his best friend, sat by his dead body for three days and three nights, mourning and crying, grieved by that loss. Then he buried Völgatta where he fell, left that accursed place and never returned there. From that day he smiled but rarely and darkness crept back into his eyes.

It's lovely. It's incredibly sad, but in a moving way. It's also got blood (which shows up in many of my inferior pictures), but not in a gory way. (which is good ^_~) All in all, I think you definitely accomplished what you were trying to. T~T *finds more wonderful pictures while softly crying*

:-) Helena Maddiel Stepanova replies: "Thank you very much... Glad I've made you cry softly...;-)"

The tears on my cheeks say it all.
I wish i could draw tragedy without gore

:-) Helena Maddiel Stepanova replies: "Thanks. "

The sense of loss is overwhelming, despite, or maybe, beacause of the sketchiness. Deeply touching, and very well made. Good description as well.

:-) Helena Maddiel Stepanova replies: "Thank you very much."

Uh, pity I can't edit comment... For I need to add that some way the dead man seems to be alive and look into my eyes... He is catching my eyes...

:-) Helena Maddiel Stepanova replies: "It's my story, but it is so JRRT-ish (not that good of course) that it doesn't really matter...;-) Thanks for the comment."

Is it your story or it is for a book I don't know? Sad and touching.
The drawing is really good, full of pain and regret. The friend must be crying now... Great job!

Again I would rename the picture - Turgon over his father's body... It would fit 2

What can be said and not disturb the mourning? I´ll rather stay silent...

Kind of looks like Elladan and Elrohir, but who is crying over who how am i supposed to know.
