Kheled-zaram. by megatruh Kheled-zaram. by megatruh
Kheled-zaram (Mirrormere), is a small lake near Khazad-dm. it is said that you could see reflections of stars on the surface of the lake at any time of the day.

I tried to illustrate the first arrival of Durin the Deathless on the lake. it's supposed to be day time but I wanted to draw the moon okay! :heart:

and someday I would think of a different idea than small dude on silhouette, standing upon vast landscape.. .
but it is not this day.

*drawn in Paint tool SAI

The sky in this picture is lovely - the clouds, the shooting stars, the hazy light. The galaxies that you can see in the reflection but not in the sky itself work really well.

I wouldn't bother worrying about the plausibility of the sky, especially given that in the version of the Legendarium most people follow the Moon wouldn't even exist yet. As this scene is taken from mythology pretty and metaphorical probably works better anyway.

My favourite series has that Durin was already awake and wandering when the Noldor were making their way to Valinor, so the sky looking very night-ish would fit that.

It also doesn't hurt that I can think that figure looks a little like Kili from behind, since the same series has Kili as Durin the Seventh.

It's stunning! I love the colours. Maybe next time when you'll redraw this pic you can add Gimli, Frodo and Sam cos I think they stopped there when they escaped from Khazad-dm. ;)

actually I was struggling between drawing Gimli, frodo, Sam /Durin, but then I saw there're many people already that missing scene XD and I also think the world was more beautiful at Durin's time ~
anw thank you <33

Nature is undoubtedly beautiful. But it is artworks like this that make works of hand as equally profound, and if not, greater than nature herself.

D: this is so so so so so so so  beautiful and enchanting and I have been looking at it for the past 5 minutes just grasping all this DETAIL
I thought perfection didnt exist, but then I found your art. I cannot begin to describe how much your art moves me. I cannot tell you how in love I am with it without making up words that just vaguely express how much i absolutely love it.
If your art were a person then I'd do anything to marry it, I'm not even joking. It's like if I were to look up 'perfection' in the dictionary, this picture along with half of your entire gallery would be there. and ohmygod i sound so ridiculously lame but you know what love makes people say stupid things.
