Hirwen by EriolSarothron

Nuneth by EriolSarothron
"For as Núneth had said to Erendis long before: ‘Ships he may love, my daughter, for those are made by men’s minds and hands; but I think that it is not the winds or the great waters that so burn his heart, nor yet the sight of strange lands, but some heat in his mind, or some dream that pursues him.’" - J.R.R. Tolkien
Uldor the Accursed by EriolSarothron
Uldor the Accursed
"The sons of Ulfang the Black were Ulfast, and Ulwarth, and Uldor the accursed; and they followed Caranthir and swore allegiance to him, and proved faithless." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Eilinel by EriolSarothron
"Now among the companions of Barahir was Gorlim son of Angrim. His wife was named Eilinel, and their love was great, ere evil befell. But Gorlim returning from the war upon the marches found his house plundered and forsaken, and his wife gone; whether slain or taken he knew not. Then he fled to Barahir, and of his companions he was the most fierce and desperate; but doubt gnawed his heart, thinking that perhaps Eilinel was not dead. At times he would depart alone and secretly, and visit his house that still stood amid the fields and woods he had once possessed; and this became known to the servants of Morgoth." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Ulfast by EriolSarothron
"The sons of Ulfang the Black were Ulfast, and Ulwarth, and Uldor the accursed; and they followed Caranthir and swore allegiance to him, and proved faithless." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Zimrahin by EriolSarothron
"Malach took the Elvish name of Aradan. His descendants all could speak the Elvish speech, and took Elvish names; but their own ancient tongue was not forgotten. Malach dwelt in Hithlum from 322 - 336. In 337 he wedded Zimrahin who then took the Elvish name Meldis." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Urwen Lalaeth by EriolSarothron
Urwen Lalaeth
"But his nurse answered: ‘Speak no more of Lalaith, son of Húrin; but of your sister Urwen you must ask tidings of your mother.’" - J.R.R. Tolkien
Zamin by EriolSarothron
"Zamîn was an old country-woman, free-tongued, and not easily daunted, even by the White Lady." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Ulwarth by EriolSarothron
"The sons of Ulfang the Black were Ulfast, and Ulwarth, and Uldor the accursed; and they followed Caranthir and swore allegiance to him, and proved faithless." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Morwen of Lossarnach by EriolSarothron
Morwen of Lossarnach
"Éomer was like his fathers before him; but Éowyn was slender and tall, with a grace and pride that came to her out of the South from Morwen of Lossarnach, whom the Rohirrim had called Steelsheen." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Saelon by EriolSarothron
"Borlas looked up, and as he glanced keenly at Saelon he wondered suddenly if this young man, usually gay and often half mocking, had more in his mind than appeared in his face." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Borthand by EriolSarothron
"The sons of Bór were Borlad, Borlach, and Borthand; and they followed Maedhros and Maglor, and cheated the hope of Morgoth, and were faithful." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Beruthiel by EriolSarothron
"Berúthiel lived in the King’s House in Osgiliath, hating the sounds and smells of the sea and the house that Tarannon built below Pelargir ‘upon arches whose feet stood deep in the wide waters of Ethir Anduin’ she hated all making, all colours and elaborate adornment, wearing only black and silver and living in bare chambers, and the gardens of the house in Osgiliath were filled with tormented sculptures beneath cypresses and yews." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Hunthor by EriolSarothron
"But one Hunthor, Brandir’s kinsman, arose and said: ‘You do evilly, Dorlas, to speak thus to the shame of your lord, whose limbs by ill hazard cannot do as his heart would. Beware lest the contrary be seen in you at some turn! And how can it be said that his counsels were vain, when they were never taken? You, his liege, have ever set them at naught. I say to you that Glaurung comes now to us, as to Nargothrond before, because our deeds have betrayed us, as he feared. But since this woe is now come, with your leave, son of Handir, I will go on behalf of Haleth’s house.’" - J.R.R. Tolkien
Hareth by EriolSarothron
"In the days before the Dagor Bragollach those two houses of the Edain were joined at a great feast, when Galdor and Glóredhel the children of Hador Goldenhead were wedded to Hareth and Haldir the children of Halmir lord of the Haladin." - J.R.R. Tolkien
Earwen by EriolSarothron
"Finarfin was the fairest, and the most wise of heart; and afterwards he was a friend of the sons of Olwë, lord of the Teleri, and had to wife Eärwen, the swan-maiden of Alqualondë, Olwë’s daughter." - J.R.R. Tolkien

I was a member of the Deviantart for some time, but have decided to change my username (not being a Core member and all) by creating another account (so please...don't accuse me of plagiarizing my own work rofl...)


First of all: all of the deviations I have put so far are NOT in any way paintings, drawings, etc. by me - mostly because I do not have talent (or at least skill) to make any worthy paintings or drawings (plus - lacking a scanner makes it that more difficult...).

HOWEVER - what I'm very fond of (at least for now) is taking real-life photos of and tweaking and editing them to make an interesting and (to me at least) very "artistic" (lol) take on the said photos.

One extremely important thing about me is that I'm extremely fond of Tolkien and everything he wrote...

Which leads to my next point - I want to represent as much as I can of Tolkien's world as possible - even if not very proficient at other forms of art - it is very important to me to represent that world as best as I can.

That will be all...may other fellow artists' work on this site be as good and prolific as possible!

Thank you!

Howdie to you too!

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I do hope we chat sometime later, but now I'm busy uploading a ton of stuff I have on my computer which I made some time ago - and its HUGE - so if I find some time I'll be happy to respond!

And yes - although I feel like a shameless tool for asking this - can you spread the word of my work to others - I seem to lack the ability to promote stuff myself lol

Respectfully, Eriol!
