The Silmarillion: The Valar - Couples Version by wolfanita The Silmarillion: The Valar - Couples Version by wolfanita
I noticed it was - at least for me - quite funny to design the various Valar seperately and then see the finished character standing next to his or her spouse for the first time.
That's why I made this alternative version of my The Valar picture; all couples are standing together.
Attention matchmakers; singles are standing left at the beginning of each row!

Pretty! I like the dress designs and the expressions of the Valar. I'm just not sure how much Vána could race against the deer in that dress, haha (at least I hope that was her, lol). :D Varda's hairdo and accessories are especially lovely.

I love how Mandos looks like a dark sorcerer and Vaire Goth, but they are both very much Good. And how Manwe holds out his hand like Brother you can stop being all miserable and lonely and evil if you werent so stubborn. And Aule is looking fine in his red blacksmith gear

Since this is the "Couples" Version, you should've put Mairon with Melkor ;-) ('though he is not a Valar)

I don't know if anyone's going to be going chasing after Melkor any time soon...seeing as it's nigh impossible to get to The Void.

This is a wonderful collection of pictures.

I like the effect of the strings of beads in Varda's hair. They remind me of something that once came up in an RP I played her in, where she ended up with white streaks which I likened to shoting stars.

Even on the other picture I thought there was strong potential for the match-up of Aulë's surprised look to Yavanna's definite look of trying to lure someone with that apple. I will say though, on her dress, the way the leaf-patterned over-layers fall really makes it look like she's leaning to [our] left.

Ulmo's robes are spectacular in how they convey the image of the seas, particularly those bright lines edging various layers.

I will say I like how alike Oromë and Nessa are, they really do look like brother and sister. In comparrision Vána does not look so much like Yavanna, since they have such distinctly different colouring. Probably the strongest similarity is their long wavy hair.

It's less easy to see similarities between Námo and either of his siblings, since he does insist on wearing that hood pulled forward so far. Nienna really does look like she needs a hug, and I love Vairë's two-tone hair, and the dark red high-lights on Estë's gown.

Aule an Yavanna were drawn together from the start. They were meant to interact on the single version and also the main reason why I had the idea for the couple version.
