Tuor and Voronwe to Turgon's Hidden Kingdom - Inks by Cilab Tuor and Voronwe to Turgon's Hidden Kingdom - Inks by Cilab
Invoking both 'Shadows' (1) & 'lights'(2) among the requirements for the Tolkien inspired spell... huh contest @ grimgloomtale.deviantart.com/

This is when Tuor, despairing of the rigor of his travels, enters the Dry river(bed) that leads to Turgon's first set of gates to his Hidden Kingdom of Gondolin.
A hidden road leading deep through the mountain (3) belt that surrounds and protects the land of the Noldor.
In the words of the loremaster:
"Yet it is the road to Turgon, answered Voronwë (to his doubting companion, see pic).
[...]
This is but the approach. A road I named it; yet upon it none have passed for more than 3 hundreds years, save messengers few and secret, and all the craft of the Noldor has been expended to conceal it, since the Hidden People entered it."

Hinting at the ruinous (4) aspect of the road...

The 2 companions (or couple! -5), Tuor and Voronwë, the redeeming human and the prodigal elf face a deadly cold in that gully but their trust in each other does not falter:

"But Tuor said:
Forebode no more. Death in the wild is certain, and death at the Gate is yet in doubt for me, for all your words. Lead me still on!"

Wow thank you very much! I thought myself a little too experimental style wise so it's good to 'hear' that!! :)

Good catch on the "hear" thing. Anyway, I really like the heaviness of the ink.
