Art: Tilion's Chase by Rhapsody the Bard

Artist: Rhapsody the Bard / rhapsodythebard
Title: Tilion's Chase
Rating: General
Inspiration: But Tilion went with uncertain pace, as yet he goes, and was still drawn towards Arien, as he shall ever be; so that often both may be seen above the Earth together, or at times it will chance that he comes so nigh that his shadow cuts off her brightness and there is a darkness amid the day.
- "Of the Sun and Moon and the Hiding of Valinor" The Silmarillion
Media: Photo's & photoshopbrushes
Artist's Notes: Original photography by Vivek Chugh, Mag Stefan and Havord. A few brushes were used from Annika von Holdt, noctuidae vortex, Bokeh Brushes by Obsidian Dawn. The rest is my own handiwork. This is a companion piece to 'The Sun-maiden's raiment' my other challenge entry.

Gorgeous! This one is much more subtle than your other one, but compliments it very well!

Thank you! Both maiar had a different nature and have their own 'powers' in their own right. Or so I always envisioned them :)

Can you imagine how citizens of Arda would have gazed up to the sky at that moment, knowing that within the lore they knew, Tilion found his Arien again. *happy sigh*
