Oromė is a mighty lord. If he is less strong than Tulkas, he is more dreadful in anger; whereas Tulkas laughs ever, in sport or in war, and even in the face of Melkor he laughed in battles before the Elves were born. Oromė loved the lands of Middle-earth, and he left them unwillingly and came last to Valinor; and often of old he passed back east over the mountains and returned with his host to the hills and the plains. He is a hunter of monsters and fell beasts, and he delights in horses and in hounds; and all trees he loves, for which reason he is called Aldaron, and by the Sindar Tauron, the Lord of Forests. Nahar is the name of his horse, white in the sun, and shining silver at night. The Valaroma is the name of his great horn, the sound of which is like the upgoing of the Sun in scarlet, or the sheer lighting cleaving the clouds. Above all the horns of his host it was heard in the woods that Yavanna brought forth in Valinor; for there Oromė would train his folk and his beasts for the pursuit of the evil creatures of Melkor. The Silmarillian. 'Valaquenta'. Oromė was hard to come up with. And equally as hard to publish! Here he is with Nahar... doing something. Maybe looking down on the birth of the Elves. What do you think? Mechanical pencil, pen, and prismacolor.

Oooo! Cool! I wish I could draw like that. The feeling in this picture is great, and the detail and everything! The only thing I can see is the horse's head seems a tad small, but no matter, its barley noticable. Awesome stuff!
