I do not love the bright sword by ellaine I do not love the bright sword by ellaine
War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Númenor; and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise.

J.R.R. Tolkien - Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Redrawing old ideas. Some of you may remember the old version. After rereading some fragments of Lord of the Rings, I felt the need to draw it once again, and who knows, maybe I will bring on paper the other ideas I already have in my head too^^. So, here the reason why I love Faramir:D.

And yes, FULL VIEW! pretty please^_^

This is one of my favourite renderings of Faramir. The presence of the sword, ostensibly at odds with an otherwise tranquil academic scene, is a perfect analogy for the characters life - shared between his love of knowledge and an obligation to the defense of the realm. Brava!

Our dear Faramir. That's definitely one of my favorite quotes from the books.
