Portrait of Tar-Minyatur by MellorianJ Portrait of Tar-Minyatur by MellorianJ
Or Elros, brother of Elrond,  who chose the path of the Mortal Men and became the first King of Númenor.

Requested by :iconybereneth:

A very original request I think, because we don't see much artworks of Elros as King of 
Númenor.  :)
Ybereneth wanted to see him in his old age. I couldn't draw a very old man but had his face particularly marked and his hair turning grey.
I hope you'll like him. :)

Elros!Hes stunning and so majestic! Fantastic work ! Isnt that the same crown as Aragorn wears ?😌It must be. Im not so very familiar with the story behind the crown in the books. It would not be surprising at all if it is the very same one as Your Elros wears. In fact it would make sence as a kind of heirloom for the Numenorians passed along the kings.If you put something like that on your head it must be fantastic to fel the thousands of years in it.

I like that you used the Numenorean crown from the movies. 

Makes me wonder though: would he have gained the ability to grow facial hair once he made the choice to become human?

LOVE this. So dignified and you can still see the resemblance to Elrond, even though he's aged.

He looks like Elrond, just older. I like when fan art shows family likenesses like this. :)

Ooooh this is absolutely stunning! The crown is my fave part of this piece (if I had to pick), but something about this one is just so attention grabbing. Wonderful work!

I shamelessly copied Aragorn's crown of the movies. Thank you!

J'adore le fait qu'il ressemble à ton Elrond, mais en plus vieux et avec la couronne de Numenor sur la tête !

C'était l'idée en effet. :)  Pour le couronne par contre je ne me suis pas trop foulée en copiant celle du film :)
