Title: Into the deep
Artist: hrymfaxe
Genre: Fanart
Warnings: None
Characters: Ulmo/the sea

Prompt from the Just An Old-Fashioned Love Song Challenge: Ghost Love Score by Nightwish - and more specifically this part of the lyrics:

Scent of the sea before the waking of the world
Brings me to thee
Into the blue memory


Artist note: When I read those lyrics I was immediately reminded of this lovely story by [personal profile] pandemonium_213: Ulmo's Wife, and its wonderful mix of science (evolution) and the world of Tolkien, not to mention the relationship between Ulmo and The Sea. This is more like an illustration of Pandë's story than an original idea of mine, so credit goes to her along with my thanks for the inspiration.

Another idea employed here is that of the Valar being able to change their form, so Ulmo starts out man-shaped, but ends up as specks of light floating in the embrace of his lover.

This is a great idea! And the painting is amazing: the colors, the depth, the symbolism, and the illustration of both the lyrics and Pandë's story. Beautiful work :D

Reposting here, too. :^)

Oh, wow, Hrym! Fabulous, gorgeous paintings (you know that I am in awe of your skills with watercolors), and I love, love, LOVE your interpretation of Ulmo shifting into motes of light. I'm so honored that you found inspiration in my story!
