Aulė has might little less than Ulmo. His lordship is over all the substances of which Arda was made. In the beginning he wrought much in fellowship with Manwė and Ulmo; and the fashioning of all lands was his labour. He is a smith and a master of all crafts, and he delights in works of skill, however small, as much as in the building of old. His are the gems that lie deep in the Earth and the gold that is fair in the hand, no less than the walls of the mountains ans the basins of the sea. The Noldor learned most of him, and he was ever their friend. Melkor was jealous of him, for Aulė was most like himself in thought and in powers; and there was long strife between them, in which Melkor ever marred or undid the works of Aulė, and Aulė grew weary in repairing the tumults and disorders of Melkor. Both, also, desired to make things of their own that should be new and unthought of by others, and delighted in the praise of their skill. But Aulė remained faithful to Eru and submitted all that he did to his will; and he did not evny the works of others, but sought and gave council. The Silmarillion, 'Valaquenta' Aulė, husband to Yavanna. Creator of the dwarves. Blacksmith of the Valar. I based his design from the Roman god Vulcan. In one hand, he holds a hammer, in which he creates his works. In the other, his latest creation; the Dwarf. mechanical pencil, pen, prismacolor.

His clothes look humble.. Even though he's a smith, i pictured him wearing like green'n'red clothes.. but yeah it looks AWESOME sept for the clothes.. i mean

22 Neal R. Haney aka Olo Chubb of Deephollow replies: "Really? I kind of took a page from Mr. Peter Jackson and treated the silmarillion as a forgotten history. I just figured since he was a smith, that his garments wouldn't be very flashy or colorful. He's a smith, he works in a shop, with fire, smoke, and possibly soot. He's sweating, working, and would'nt really wear anything flashy. But that is my opinion. It's how I pictured Aule. I hope that answers any doubts you had. Thank you for your input. Namarie."

This rendition of Aulë is great in my opinion
! I like the pose, and the dwarf is the tiny little detail that makes the whole piece so amazingly satisfying to look at. Great work!
