Like Mother Like Son

Túrin and Morwen - Like Mother Like Son copia.jpg

Morwen was dark-haired and tall, and for the light of her glance and the beauty of her face men called her Eledhwen, the Elven-fair; but she was somewhat stern of mood and proud. Túrin was dark-haired as his mother, and promised to be like her in mood also; for he was not merry, and spoke little, though he learned to speak early and ever seemed older than his years.

I like the way you not only show the physical family resemblance, but the emotional one: they stand back to back, looking away from each other. They protect each other, but they do not look to each other for comfort. Very nicely done!

:D

Exactly! Their relationship is very interesting to me, because it's full of love but not really affectionate, and yet it's perfect for them.

That's a very convincing character sketch of those two--just as Dreamflower says!

Beautiful work! You always manage to capture the characters' personalities so well. Morwen definitely has the proud, stern look about her.
