Chapter 21: Of Turin Turambar
The Silmarillion

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...
