NEVER SEEN BEFORE- Contest"NEVER SEEN BEFORE" - big Tolkien themed contestNEVER SEEN BEFORE- Contest by Lord-of-the-Rings-FC
I recently got a comment on my art which made me realize that there are many scenes and characters in Tolkien's book which almost never get illustrated, while you can find hundreds of illustrations for others. Just a few examples would be
- the events during the Scouring of the Shire
- the Ringbearers arriving and living in Valinor
- Galadriel living in Eregion or passing through Moria to Lórien
- Pippin exploring Minas Tirith with Bergil
- the "lesser known" kings of Gondor and Númenor and Chieftains of Dúnedain
- Túrin attacking Glaurung in front of Nargothrond's gates BEFORE the dragon's look paralyzed him
For this contest, you need to find one that you have NEVER seen illustrated before. I won't give you more examples so you can think of your own, but feel free to use these as well. You do not need to have a thorough knowledge of the books, you can just open them at any page and see if you can find a scene you
"All have their worth," said Yavanna, "and each contributes to the worth of the others. But the kelvar can flee or defend themselves, whereas the olvar that grow cannot.

Would that the trees might speak on behalf of all things that have roots, and punish those that wrong them!" ~ The Silmarillion|
Thanks for the faves! I might not get to thank everyone, but I really appreciate them, whether or not you comment.
If I fave and run, it's because I have nothing more intelligent to say than "I love it!!!!!111eleventy".
Tale of a treeDark.
The world is dark.
And... wet. Water like the smoothest caress.
But it is not enough.
And... it's strangely warm. Like... like in a warm embrace of a living being. Covering you whole.
Thirsty and suffocating.
Drink water, but not enough.
Air not enough.
Warmth not enough.
Need to stretch.
Stretch towards the weight. Weight is calling. Weight promises more water.
Stretch away from the weight. Away from the weight, away from the warm embrace. Break free.
Following the weight, going deep. Cooler here. Dark, in here. But there is water. Deep is a refuge. Deep is safe. Deep is water.
Deep is life.
Going away from the weight. Escaping the weight. Break free. It's hard to break free.
But then -
Air, and the world is suddenly open, awaiting you.
Away from the weight, there is air. It shakes you. It caresses you. It embraces you. Dancing around you, kissing you. Sweet, beautiful air.
Take more breaths. Fill yourself with
