Manwe by Nahar-Doa Manwe by Nahar-Doa
Manwe and melkor are brothers in Iluvatar's mind. At the beginning, the most powerful ainu was Melkor who had came to the earth. But Manwe is favourite child of ERU. Manwe is Lord of Arda and Aratar. His happiness in the wind and clouds. He loves all the fastest birds and the power of the wings. Manwe lives with lady of the stars; Varda. They lived in Valinor. They rost in Oiolosse, top of the Taniquetil.. The highest mountain of the world. İf Varda with him, Manwe sees behind the fogs, darkness and deep of the sea...

This... This is my favourite impression of Manwe. Most of them go old or musclebound but he's not; he's all flow and air and THIS. Also love that you've included the Eagles.

I love the flowing lines, the wild wind flowing around him with the birds. He seems to be able to control the wind which look like flames on his hand. The way he stands is so confident and certain, a powerful being

I really, really like the texture of the pens, the strokes and movement! The whole piece is lovely, the flowing shapes and lights and darks, but man do I love your penstrokes!

Dunno why, but I've never liked Manwe...maybe because I always like Melkor the most! :D
Anyway. It's a wonderful drawing! :love:

Evet bir kaç gündür şöyle bir karistirdim çok güzel çizim yapan kişiler var. Elflerden insanlardan cucelerden.. orta dünya, aman buralarda canlanmis bile. Silmarillionla ilgili cizimlerine devam etmelisin. Somut olarak konuşmak istiyorum. Cok güzel elfler, olaylar, canlandirmalar vb. çizimler var, ancak insanlarin ve cizerlerin kafasında bir elfin ya da cucenin nasil olmasi gerektiği imaji az cok yerleşti. Yani değişik yorumlar olsa bile farklar çok belirgin değil. Elfler ve diğerleri artık canlandı, hayat buldu, aramızda yaşıyor diyebiliriz. Ama hala valarin imajı tam olarak oturmus değil, poseidona zeusa benzeten çalışmalar yapanlar var ama su ana kadar ( renklendirilmemis bir calisma olsa dahi) kendine özgü bir karakreri olan vala tasarımına ilk defa rastladim diyebilirim. Bu nedenle lütfen çizmeye devam et, çünkü görüyorum ki özgün karakterler olarak valari çoktan kafanda şekillendirmeye başlamışsın.

Özgün olduğunu düşünmen beni çok fazla sevindirdi tekrar çok teşekkür ederim bu güzel yorumun için. :) Şu anda Silmarillion karakterlerini ve mimari yerlerini çizme kararı almış durumdayım. (aslına bakarsan birçok kişi benden Melkor'u bekliyor fakat süpriz olarak saklıyorum şu an. Melkoru çizmekteyim. :) yakın zamanda paylaşıcam yeni manwe ve melkoru.

A great illustration of Manwe. I had never thought him as having an older aged face, so this is what i have dreamed about and searched for. He is great, wisdom is in his eyes, energic and noble. I can fall in love with him, as many others will do :)

Çok teşekkür ederiiim :) Takdir görmesi beni gerçekten çok mutlu ediyor. Ben de asla Manwe'yi beyaz sakallı bir dede olarak düşünmemişimdir. Yoksa diğer bütün tanrılar gibi sıradan olacaktı. Manwe gençtir gerçekten. :) Şimdi de Melkor isteniyor. Ben de yakında tekrardan Silmarillion için çalışmayı düşünüyorum. Artık Tolkien çizeri olarak bilinmeye başladım zaten. :) Tekrar teşekkürler ve deviantart'a hoşgeldin.

anlıyorum teşekkür ederim tekrardan :) geçenlerde bir yazı paylaştım acaba silmarillion çizmeye devam etsem mi diye, birçok kişi evet diyor. O yüzden şu an elimde manwenin yeni yapılmış hali var. Onu da paylaşıcam yakında. Çok sevindim yorum yapmak için üye olman açıkçası gururlandırdı beni :D burada harika resimler bulacaksın inanılmaz sanatçılar var :)

very nice idea, very inspirational.... i'm reading the silmarillion now and i'm in awe of all the artists here on dA who make such beautiful drawings or paintings of things that cannot be drawn or paint - at least so you think until you find such stuff like this one... are you going to color it? (it's already perfect in black and white tho)

Thank you so much. Actually this painting was just a sketch in black and white. Then I tried to colour it on digital. But it's unique design had lost. So I decided to keep it like that. You can see other silmarillion drawings on my galery. Thanks again.

Hmm. She has a history with Morgoth, I suppose. When he came to stand before the Valar she was the only one who defended him, being Pity itself.

That might have a story :)

Amazing :love: Love the look and all the lines that create him, and especially the idea of eagles flying from him! Was thinking of something alike - creating Valar from environment they are in rather than drawing a human posture. Too many ideas, not enough drawing.
(Technically you could clean dark marks in top corners and on the borders.)
