Ar-Pharazon by steamey Ar-Pharazon by steamey
Then Ar-Pharazon hardened his heart, and he went aboard his mighty ship, Alcarondas, Castle of the Sea. Manyoared it was and many-masted, golden and sable; and upon it the throne of Ar-Pharazon was set. Then he did on his panoply and his crown, and let raise his standard, and he gave the signal for the raising of the anchors; and in that hour the trumpets of Numenor outrang the thunder.Thus the fleets of the Numenoreans moved against the menace of the West; and there was little wind, but they had many oars and many strong slaves to row beneath the lash. The sun went down, and there came a great silence.

This is amazing. Ar-Pharazon looks like a mad prophet, it's perfect. XD

 

I agree that the Tree symbols may not entirely fit, but eh, it's not a big enough deal for me to complain too much about.

The water in this is beautiful and grabs my attention right away!  Would love to see a full out waterscape from you, because you've captured so much wonder in one crash of a wave.  Absolutely stunning!

Lots of nice details, especially the shore birds.
But it was the crazy eyes that drew me in! Those mad numenorians!

Lore debate...
I know they had a white tree of their own, but it's possible the Numenorians could have chosen a different emblem. With the political climate in Numenor at the time of this scene, sailing to the True West -- that tree was the symbol of the agreement with the Valar: the island's protection so long as they don't try to go west. I doubt they'd want that tree on their breast anymore... It's an Interesting choice, and an interesting debate: what would Ar-Pharazon have chosen for his standard?

Meanwhile, that's not something easily changed on your piece, so don't touch a thing! It's splendid!
