Elf's best friend


"Now the chief of the wolf hounds that followed Celegorm was named Huan. He was not born in Middle-earth, but came from the Blessed Realm; for Oromë had given him to Celegorm long ago in Valinor, and there he had followed the horn of his master, before evil came. Huan followed Celegorm into exile, and was faithful; and thus he too came under the doom of woe set upon the Noldor."

For shirebound, who wanted to see one of my dogs as Huan.

I agree with Binka. He has a Huan-like wisdom about the eyes.

I know... he doesn't have the look of an 8 months puppy in that photo, but like he's lived many lives

(I'll post it later, along others where he looks as un-Huan like as possible)

Thank you! Over 100 photos of him and only in three he looked like a potential Huan XD

Is this your dog?

But hey, it looks as if we forget Celegorm, and his quiet presence in the background is greatly done as well :)

You're very talented :)

He is <3 I have another one, but he looks too much like a fox, not like how I picture Huan.

Celegorm was a last minute addition. I needed something to show how big Huan is.

Thank you so much :)

Lovely! I love that you used one of your dogs, being a dog person myself. He has beautiful, expressive eyes, and I love the personality in that droopy ear. Beautiful work. :)

Thank you!

When shirebound gave me that idea it was one of those 'why didn't I think of this before' moments.

He has a very expressive face and I agree, there's a lot of personality in that ear!

Awesome drawing. The look in Huan's eyes speaks volumes. A dog is man's best friend indeed. :)
