Manwe Sketch by GustavoMalek Manwe Sketch by GustavoMalek
For suggestion I'm trying to portray the King of the Valar, ManwŰ S˙limo. In fact, this one is very challenging. I had many variations of it, including a brunnete version, and I'm not very satisfied with it. Well, I hope soon you'll see the final version.

This one is fantastic! :love: As I judge on a thumbnail the next version will be nice, either. I think you might refine this one more and post it in the main part of your gallery, it's really good, just get rid a bit more of the sketchy lines. I keep my :fingerscrossed: for your ManwŰ :D
BTW, my ManwŰ is waiting in scraps, too, till I'll learn more.

Thanks! Unforntunately, I will not make any more efforts in this one. It's a quick sketch made in a notebook that I put in the computer and colored just to test. The final version will be the other one.

It looks really good! I always envisioned Manwe like an Odin-like divinity (except that he DID keep his two eyes!)... with a halo of some sort that revealed his divine origins. But your version looks awesome! I recommend adding a few eagles but it's great nevertheless! ;)

Impressive that everyone mention the eagles. Indeed, I intend to put some eagles and hawks, althought no halo. I hope I can do a glow of some sort to achieve that ethereal thing. I want that he remember the greek gods but diferent enough to do'nt be confunded him with Zeus or other mythical chacarter. Thanks a lot for your suggestions. ;)

I wouldn't consider such a request a surprise man, not in the least: Manwe was their creator and they're downright cool! ;). And no halo? Well, I think that's ok but do add elements that increase that ethereal "feel" to it!

So far, I think it's very good! I always had a hard time trying to imagine ManwŰ, but I think this idea of your's isn't too bad. Of course, a Valar it's a really special being, and only as an adaptation can be portraited with a manish look, I think. The light is awesome! Hope to see the finished version soon!
