unhappy fate by liga-marta unhappy fate by liga-marta
...but she (Nienor) was not there, nor was it ever known whither the cold waters of Teiglin had taken her...

Chapter 21: Of Turin Turambar
The Silmarillion
J.R.R. Tolkien


I was inspired by photo, found it on internet.
watercolor + ink

So poignant. Turin and Nienor were both under Morgoth's curse. But Turin's pride and arrogance contributed to his doom. Nienor was truly innocent. She looks finally at peace here.

I love how you remembered the dreadful paleness that dead people have. Quite a lot of artists forget it...
