Tirion II by Anubis1000 Tirion II by Anubis1000
A quick photoshoped colorization of an earlier concept sketch.


Tirion upon Tuna is the fictional metropolis which appears in J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy novel "The Silmarillion"

Located between the dark shadowy waters of the great ocean and the bright lands of the blessed realm of Aman, where the Powers dwell.

Tirion was built by the Vanyar elves in the Calacirya, a valley which connects the two realms, the only place in Aman where light filters through the margin of the encirceling mountains,, The Pelori, and illuminates the other side.

On a hill named Tuna, lies the shadowy city of Tirion.



[Digital, 1000x809p (2008)]

I haven't seen many pictures of Tirion, but this one is certainly great. I'd love to draw the city too one day... :-)

This is stunning. I can see why Tirion is called the "Watchtower." :)
Hope you plan to do Aqualonde and Valimar as well.

GOD bless

I have always wanted to the Halls of Mandos....as well as the dwelling of Nienna which over looks the doors of night and especially....The gardens of Lorien
