Awesome! I used this in a post on the "Aulë and Yavanna" chapter from The Silmarillion: truemyths.org/2014/10/27/silma…

Hope that's cool!

Aulë is the beddest master, since he had Saruman and Sauron in his hands... But good that he created dwarves :)

This has to be my favorite of the three you posted although Manwe and Melkor are so close in second that I almost love them all equally!! I think it could be the amount of detail and time you took and giving Aule the dwarvish vocabulary in form, decoration and background. Although the runes technically came later, it matters not, I think there's a great incorporation of them into his identity. Athough he could have incorporated them to himself later! Who knows. :) What is he holding? An ax?

You are so right about runes :) I thought that too. But I dont know I wanted to give him something ''dwarvish''. He is holding his sledge (when he was trying to destroy his dwarves.) I really appreciate your comment. :) That means a lot to me. Im illustrating Tulkas now. Hoping that you'll give comments on him too. :)

I think it came across perfectly as a visual cue making him immediately distinguishable without having to write his name anywhere. :)

I'd run away at the sight of that...

I know he has a wonderful personality, but... certainly, he looks mighty and a bit scary

Of course. I was trying to give him some ''mineworker'' looks if thats correct. and the scary side of him; He is one of the mightiest Valar and I guess he deserves some scary side :) and thank you for your comment. :)
