Just a quick note that I don't currently have any cartoons in store to post, and am quite busy currently - so I'm not sure when I'll have chance to do more. Hopefully normal service will be resumed as soon as possible: sorry for the delay!

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 156 - Whispers

11th September 2014 (21:17)

I'm going with Orodreth, son of Angrod, son of Finarfin, son of Finwë here, for the record. Also, the events shown in this series of cartoons are actually taking place over the course of about 350 years, hence why it takes a while for people to work out what's going on.

'Leadership principle' in German is Führerprinzip. Unfortunately, the Elves haven't realised that taking advice on political philosophy from Melkor is a bad idea, though hopefully Finarfin, at least, doesn't seem entirely convinced...

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 155 - A bling thing

8th September 2014 (21:47)

If you're thinking Galadriel has grown up a lot since we last saw her; in canon Fëanor spent a Valinorean year (1449-1450) or ten solar years making the Silmarils; and this incident isn't necessarily taking place immediately afterward either.

The other Elves with her in that group are Maedhros, Fingon, Turgon and Aegnor.

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 154 - Holy, holy, holy

4th September 2014 (17:36)

I remember once seeing a trivia question, "Which of Tolkien's characters has physically touched a Silmaril?" There was some debate over whether Varda would have held them in her hands to hallow them, as shown here, or if she could have done it remotely.

Interestingly, in the earliest drafts of the Silmarillion it was Manwë who hallowed them and Varda who made the prophecy that in the published book Námo gives.

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 153 - Seeing the light(s)

1st September 2014 (19:58)

So as you might have guessed, I kind of ran out of pre-prepared cartoons after reaching the creation of the Silmarils, hence no posts last week. But I've managed to put one together at least:

Here they are at last: the things the book is, y'know, named after.
Sparkly. :)

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 151 - Brighter than 10,000 suns

18th August 2014 (19:21)

Each fruit of the Two Trees is as bright as the Sun, so let's just hope Fëanor remembered to install a dimmer switch...

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 150 - Harder than diamond

14th August 2014 (14:19)

Melkor's initiative to be friendly and helpful to everybody continues! Instead of him talking to Maglor (bottom left corner) I did at first consider showing him talking to Maedhros and offering to lend him a hand, but decided that was just too cruel...

The reference to Curufin's new girlfriend is specially for lignota (Curufin is the only one of Fëanor's sons to be specifically noted in canon as having married and had children, though it's possible at least some of the others did so off-camera).

The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 149 - Fires of Creation

11th August 2014 (23:43)

I know, I know, technically it's Galadriel's hair follicles which are alive, not her actual hair. That wouldn't fit into the space in the cartoon. :)
