Ok, ok, I admit it, deep down in my heart I sometimes am an evil person.
This was mostly inspired by a cake mould in swan-form that I saw in a shop, which made my inner Fëanorian cackle madly and think, "Wouldn't it be brilliant to have a swan-shaped cake, with white icing on it, and THEN PUT CANDLES ALL OVER IT?"
Hey, it would be kind of an amusing meta-comment at a Tolkien event, or on the set of the Silmarillion
tv series which surely must be made at some point (... please?). >_>
's birthday came around, I figured, what the hey, let's make a snarky birthday card this time.
And that's basically it.
I am pleased that Maedhros actually looks vaguely like my other (recent-ish) depictions of him. Caranthir - by accident - turned out sufficiently like I drew him on another birthday card I made several years back [[link]
so at least I'm showing some consistency, yay.
The Ambarussa look like hobbits because I can't draw little children to save my life, and young Curufin bears a scary resemblance to my cousin Ricardo.
Anyway! Happy belated birthday, Elleth. *hugs*
