Namo, the Judge by Maureval Namo, the Judge by Maureval
Namo, often called Mandos, probably the wisest among the Valar.
Indoubtedly my most favourite Vala (alongside with Irmo). ^^;

Quite oriental vision of him (a sage/priest mixed with a samurai). In fact his "profession" has a lot in common with the priesthood. ;)

Although this image may also suit Irmo, the Lord of Dreams, the younger brother of Namo.

No reference.

Namo is my favorite also, and this is exactly as I imagined he would look. Stern, but yet not without compassion. +fav

That's a very cool concept. There's quite a lot of character I see in this piece. Almost sorrow behind the cold exterior.

Very interesting take on Namo! One would expect him to be dressed in black and grey,
but green is nice when one thinks about it. He's the Vala of death, and death is a rebirth.
The sage aspect is nice too, because he is also the Vala of prophecy.

GOD bless

Majestic, wise, and severe but fair. Pretty good for Mandos, and this all-new interpretation of him makes this piece even more interesting. I never really thought about having eastern influences for the Valar, but, hey, that really works :la:. Great!

Nice take on him- I never would have thought of incorporating eastern influences into something as dominantly western as Tolkien! But I think you made it work, and made it work well at that. Also I really like the little gold swirls behind him. <3
