My first post in who knows how long. I was working on this small personal project with simple ‘concept.’ I love birds, and I love looking at royalty and the romantic depiction of them so I put them together. (technically just slapping on crowns on all these birds) Just tried to design and depict everything as something lovely.
These were all digitally done. I’ll have a couple more pieces I’ve done for this project so I’ll post after I’ve taken nice pictures of them.
On 1 May T.A. 3019 the rightful heir (Aragorn II Telcontar) came forward to receive the crown. The tradition had been for a new king to receive the crown from the hands of his father (or to obtain it from his father’s tomb), but Faramir brought forth the casket with the ancient Crown and gave it to Aragorn. After chanting “Et Eärello Endorenna utúlien. Sinome maruvan ar Hildinyar tenn’ Ambar-metta!” Aragorn surprised the crowd by returning the crown to Faramir. At his request, Frodo Baggins took the crown and bore it to Gandalf, who placed it on King Elessar’s head with the blessing,
“Now come the days of the King, and may they be blessed while the thrones of the Valar endure!”
