The Dragon Helm of Dor-Lomin by lomehir The Dragon Helm of Dor-Lomin by lomehir
"That helm was wrought of grey steel adorned with gold, and on it were graven runes of victory. A power was in it that guarded any who wore it from wound and death, for the sword that hewed it was broken, and the dart that smote it sprang aside. It was wrought by Telchar, the smith of Nogrod, whose works are renowned. It had a visor (after the manner of those that the Dwarves used in their forges for the shielding of the eyes), and the face of one that wore it struck fear into the hearts of all beholders, but was itself was guarded from dart and fire. Upon its crest was set in defiance a gilded image of Glaurung the dragon; for it had been made soon after he had issued from the gates of Morgoth."

Unfinished Tales, Part 1, Ch 2, Narn I Hîn Húrin: The Departure of Túrin

Instant favorite! fantastic work, I kept looking for a good drawing of the dragon helm....I came across the "not really, but cool", the "oh so close to my imagination!"...and this which is exactly how I imagined it, except with runes on the piece right above the eyes.

It shows depth and skill whenever a person types down something Lord of the Rings related and comes across pencil work of this ability. You either draw Lord of the Rings material good or bad and you my good man, exemplified that. Cheers mate.

JRR would be proud of this! Fantastic work! :love:...

I'm an amateur armourer, and I was hoping that you wouldn't object to me using this as inspiration for a real-life Dragon-helm that I'm planning as my next project :eager:....

Keep up the good work!
