Glaurung mesmerizing Niënor

Whenever I saw the dragons ilustrated by Tolkien, I couldn’t help but seeing the resemblance with eastern dragons. Mostly because of those long and stylized bodies. I know he probably had in mind regular european dragons, but I thought it would be fun depicting Glaurung differently than usual.


Here’s my submission for this year’s @officialtolkiensecretsanta, and my gift to @anonymouseomer ! I was so excited to draw Aragorn and (a tall, tall) Arwen – I hope you like them.

Happy holidays! <3

Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

Nerdanel, wife of Fëanáro, mother to Maedhros, Maglor, Celegorm, Caranthir, Curufin, Amras, and Amrod, granddaughter of Mahtan. One of the most gifted sculptors of the Noldor, said to be capable of making deceptively lifelike statues. She loved to walk among the hills and by the waters of Valinor (Morgoth’s Ring), perhaps wanting to be by the ocean, closest she could be to her exiled children.

She swatted at him playfully with her fan, her lips twitching into a smile. “There better be a proposal attached to those words, Took,” she answered. 

Pippin grinned. “How ‘bout it then, Di? Shall we marry this June?”

She raised an eyebrow, resisting a smirk. “Who said I’d say yes?”

(Spoiler! she does say yes – Gotta tie down that future Thain 😉 Pippin and Diamond! Cause I’ve been thinking about the hobbits lately 😚)
