Gwindor's Charge [Line Work] by peet
Gwindor's Charge [Line Work]
A work-in-progress of the final illustration requested and under consideration by Warner Bros to appear in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 3D Extended Edition DVD & Blu-ray box-set, in a 'Making of ...' documentary to be released in Autumn-Winter 2015.

I was asked to create an image of Elves looking 'fierce' in battle, and to base it roughly on the template established in one of my older paintings The Ride of the Rohirrim. Accordingly, I decided to go with Gwindor's foolish charge on Angband which effectively began the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, or Battle of Unnumbered Tears, and ended in the utter ruin of the Noldor (and the Free Peoples of Beleriand more generally) as a force capable of enclosing - let alone defeating - the armies of Morgoth in the North.

I don't ordinarily submit line works of my paintings, however I felt this looked nice enough as a stand alone piece to warrant an appearance, and that a glimpse at the evolution of one of my works might interest some people. Needless to say, this is what will be keeping me busy and off the streets in the coming days (week?)! Keep an eye out for the finished work, which will (hopefully soon) be 
placed in The Silmarillion-Unfinished Tales gallery proper.

The Request of Thingol by peet
The Request of Thingol
'At that very time great craftsmen of Nogrod were lately come into Doriath; and the King therefore summoning them declared his desire, that if their skill were great enough they should remake the Nauglamír, and in it set the Silmaril. Then the Dwarves looked upon the work of their fathers, and they beheld with wonder the shining jewel of Fëanor; and they were filled with a great lust to possess them, and carry them off to their far homes in the mountains. But they dissembled their mind, and consented to the task.'

JRR Tolkien: The Silmarillion: Chapter 22: Of the Ruin of Doriath

Aule Crafting the Dwarves [b/w sketch] by peet
Aule Crafting the Dwarves [b/w sketch]
Yet another piece under consideration by Warner Bros to appear in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 3D Extended Edition DVD & Blu-ray box-set, in a 'Making of ...' documentary to be released in Autumn-Winter 2015. This depicts the inception and creation of the Seven Fathers of the Dwarves in years uncounted before the awakening of the Elves, by their maker the Vala Aulë. Since Durin was said in legend to be the first of the Dwarves to have been made, he is depicted in the foreground fully-wraught. As for the rest of the Dwarves and which tribe they belong to, this is left entirely up to the viewer. 

As in the case of Durin's Long Slumber [b/w sketch], in due course the plan will be to transfer this sketch for colouring and to put the finished work in The Silmarillion-Unfinished Tales gallery proper.

The Hour of His Vengeance by peet
The Hour of His Vengeance
'For Fëanor, in his wrath against the Enemy, would not halt, but pressed on behind the remnant of the Orcs, thinking so to come at Morgoth himself: and he laughed aloud as he wielded his sword, rejoicing that he had dared the wrath of the Valar and the evils of the road, that he might see the hour of his vengeance. Nothing did he know of Angband or the great strength of defence that Morgoth had so swiftly prepared: but even had he known it would not have deterred him, for he was fey, consumed by the flame of his own wrath.'
