Beleg and Turin
I never liked the tale of the Children of Hurin much. In my opinion Turin is nothing more than an angry, over-dramatic, arrogant ass who realizes it too little and too late. It's very hard to feel any kind of sympathy for him. I always liked Beleg though. His mentor-mentee relationship turned bash-brothers with Turin is rather sweet. Too bad it ended up killing him.

 Anyway this is before all the drama when Turin is only Thingol's foster son and Beleg is the March-warden of Doriath and teaching the grim kid archery in an attempt to cheer him up.
We went to Oman in september. Oman is mostly hot as balls then but the region near Salalah experiences the tail end of the Khareef at that time.
 The khareef is the result of monsoon clouds drifting from India that cool of when they reach the Dhofar mountains becoming a dense fog that transforms the usually dessicated region into a lush green garden.
This painting was inspired by that.
Durin the Deathless
The world was young, the mountains green,
No stain yet on the Moon was seen,
No words were laid on stream or stone
When Durin woke and walked alone.
He named the nameless hills and dells;
He drank from yet untasted wells;
He stooped and looked in Mirrormere,
And saw a crown of stars appear,
As gems upon a silver thread,
Above the shadows of his head.

Recently discovered this song -->… which inspired me to make an attempt at painting Durin the Deathless.
If he is depicted at all it is usually as an old dwarrow as he grew to be very old which earned him the epithet of "the Deathless"
As the song starts with Durin just waking up at the beginning of the world I wanted to paint him in his younger years.
I imagine this is just after he founded  Khazad-dum.
I borrowed some of Thorin's braids since they are family and I figured some braid configurations might be bound to families.
And of course he also has that big hawk nose.

Like a lot of artist before me I have cracked and opened a Patreon account.-->
I'm nearly finished with my studies and I am poised to enter "Adult Life"  and get a job.
However I got this crazy idea to do a Phd.
Bio-Medical Phds are not exactly lying around and even if /when you get one the grants and/or salaries are not exactly fit for more than bare survival ( if even that).
 Hence the patreon account so that I can earn a bit on the side and hopefully contribute a bit more to our household budget than just some of the groceries.
So if some of you have a bit left over to pledge, you're more than welcome

Ik zit nog steeds in leiden maar gelukkig ben ik weg van mijn oude huis. Ben nu sinds een aantal maanden ingetrokken bij mijn vriendje. Hij kan er helaas niet zijn.
