Narn i Chîn Húrin "Movie Poster" – Forbidden Love
This is a "movie poster layout" featuring the key players in the final act of the tragedy that is the story of the children of Húrin, the fateful final years in Brethil. Túrin/Turambar, Nienor/Níniel, the Black Sword Gurthang, Brandir the Lame, Glaurung the dragon and Morgoth laughing in the background as his curse is fulfilled..
I was inspired to draw this already in January, I think, when I heard of the plans to publish the new book that would present Narn i Chîn Húrin as a completed continuous narrative. So this is to celebrate "the first new Tolkien book since the Silmarillion.." Barely finished it in time for the book's publication.
This is actually part 5 – I have ideas for 4 other "posters" like this of the other stages of Túrin's life.. but we shall see if I'll ever get round working anything out of those.. I think it might make a neat series, though.
