The Kinslaying by ivoignob The Kinslaying by ivoignob
Thus at the last the Teleri were overcome, and a great part of the mariners that dwelt in Alqualonde were wickedly slain. For the Noldor were become fierce and desperate, and the Teleri had less strength, and were armed for the most part but with slender bows. Then the Noldor drew away their white ships and manned their oars as best they might, and rowed them north along the coast.

The Silmarillion
Of the flight of the Noldor
J.R.R. Tolkien


Another Tolkien-based illustration which not fits the description (Oh my god, I forgot the rows!!! :-P). Anyway, I'm happy that it's finaly done, and I will think twice before aiming to make such a complicated scene again :-)

Sorry for the late reply. Yes it was very sad indeed. But as such, it was very captivating as well.

Hehe, thank you! If all those LotR fanboys and fangirls only knew. It's a must-read, isn't it?

Most definitely a must-read - it took me about two years for me to find a copy (and I was pretty excited when I found one).

Terrific work! So much going on here - I can really sense the patience that must have went into this.

Great piece!

Thank you so much! Indeed, it took a long time because of the breaks I had to take, when my patience went off :D
