Namo Mandos by edarlein Namo Mandos by edarlein
Namo Mandos, Vala, the elder of Fëanturi.

Námo the elder dwells in Mandos, which is westward in Valinor. He is the keeper of the Houses of the Dead, and the summoner of the spirits of the slain. He forgets nothing; and he knows all things that shall be, save only those that lie still in the freedom of Ilúvatar. He is the Doomsman of the Valar; but he pronounces his dooms and his Judgements only at the bidding of Manwë. (JRR Tolkien).

I love how you drew him, it's almost exactly as how I always pictured him in my mind. He looks eerie and harsh, but also a bit sad as well. I can't really describe the feeling I get from this drawing, but it's nice! :D

This is gorgeous! I love Mandos; he and Lorien are my favorite Valar. This is almost exactly how I always picture him. The shading is awesome! *faves*

I love the way you draw the robes - they look soooo realistic! Do you use some reference photos?
