Elven Weapons - Silmarillion by Atohas Elven Weapons - Silmarillion by Atohas
Here is my second version of weapons designs from Silmarillion. I have changed some of them and added some more (with better quality)



*Original designs of the weapons of Turgon, Gil-Galad, Idril and Ecthelion belong to Weta Workshop.

*Owner of Orcrist was not clearly stated by Tolkien so I felt free to give it to Ecthelion, one of the trusted nobles of Gondolin.


***Edit: Changed swords of Earendil, Celebrimbor,Feanor,Fingon and Gwindor. Also switched Gwindor and Mablung's weapons
***Edit: Changed swords of Amrod, Amras and Elurin
***Edit: Changed swords of Finwe, Feanor and Maedhros
***Edit: Was reading the Children of Hurin(again) and just realized that Maeglin's sword was actually black like Turin's since both weapons were made by Eol the dark elf, farther of Maeglin. I missed that detail in my drawings. Sorry about that.

95% should be long straight swords like the Noldor and Sindar use but the art is great even so.

I don't think you understand what you have done. This is IT for me. I will never be able to imagine these people as holding other swords. It's canon. Not even headcanon.

Just... thank you!

Elegant weapons, I think it is always easier to draw a brutal weapon than an elegant one.

These are awesome. I love how much thought you put in the blades to reflect their owners. I specially like Maeglin's Feanor's and Thingol.
One little thing (read with annoying nerd voice) Celegorm was a hunter, and he favored the bow; although it never becomes as famous as Beleg's.
