Finally, after tons of hard work and a rush for the finishing line I can sumbmit this to the "between the lines" contest for the LOTR club. Go here to vote :[link]
My biggest thanks go out to my girlfriend :iconmalkbass: who gave me the inspiration, kept me focused, blocked out most of the flat colors and occasionally cracked the whip on me.
I just hope that everyone will get the joke and can apreciate (is that written right?) it.
Thanks everyone enjoy.

Edit:
HOLY MOLY ! there you don't pay attention for a few days and then this !
WOW! THanks all of you for your nice reasureing comments. I am truly honered. I guess I have to draw a lot more stuff for deviantart :D

Yavanna and Mandos are just perfect! I laughed out loud over this, this is amazing! One of the best DA Silmarillion fanarts I have seen yet.

This drawing is simply brilliant! I perfectly agree with Ulmo, lets give the ring to the only vala actually willing to make something out of it! Moreover your representation of Manwe is perfect and, for a second, I sympathized with Aule cowering behind the throne. Great work!

That's great! Love their expressions, especially Yavanna's. Ulmo's design is really cool, with all the shells incorporated into it.

Thank you very much! With his description of being clad in mail from silver to green I thought he wouldn't look maritime enough so I thought: "Crown of shells- AWESEOME! Trident...nah stereotype. Trident made out of shells - AWESOME!"

Yeah I noticed that while I was inking and then again I reconned that even though it took the fellowship quite a while to get anywhere before Ulmo could guess where they where going we really don't know how long a Valar-council might take with all their "should we do something? -We should do something!" back and forth. Chances are long enough for Boromir to die. So I thought with the one panel showing some passing of time with the sundown it might leave enough opportunity for the imagination to fill in the rest.
Props for noticing :)

This is the most hilarious thing I've seen in a long while! XDDD I love how you portrayed them all, especially Yavanna (she does seem a little cracked after her trees got eaten). Poor Sauron though, I guess this is not necessarily what he had in mind. XDD

Thank you very much.
Yavanna is my favourite in this comic too. And Yeah I imagined that she never came over the loss of the trees and the missed opportunity to use the Silmarils to create new ones. Combined with her husband that doesn't really get her I assume that she has a lot of repressed emotions that come out from time to time n_n.
She probably also gets along quite well with Ulmo with plants needing water and growing inside it and all...

I couldn't really pick who was my favorite, because all of their expressions were so great - even Varda, who just conveniently fell asleep (or pretended to, so she would be left alone). Ulmo likes his dramatic entries, which was really funny as well. And Yavanna, the poor thing... I really like her being crazy though. XDD The Valar are way too boring as it is.
I have this feeling Ulmo just wanted to help her so she would stop whining and so he could have some fun. But I don't think the outcome is that great. XDD

I've seen a lot of silmarillion based art on DA...but this one practically trumps all of them; its hilarious but its also very high quality, extra awesome points for Ulmo's method of entry...I always did think he was cooler than Manwe...:D

So glad that you enjoyed it! Ulmos entry was the longest subject of development on this comicand I too think it's quite fitting since his appearence is supposed to strike pure awe into everyone lucky/unlucky enough to see it.
And about Manwe, he always gives me the impression of a perfect moron :)
He is the King of the earth and sees (almost) everything but he just can't understand for the love of it what "evil" is and only sees fit to act on something when people are begging him.
My Girlfriend and me also have a mean little theory in which we consider everyone in the LOTR-universe a moron, for all the dumb descicions they make. Morgoth promising Ungolant to give "with both hands", Feanor for killing his own Kin, etc. contrary to Ulmo who didn't do all that much but inspired some of the of the most smart things that people did and as good as he could kept evil affraid of the waters. So in essence - Ulmo is the best :3 ...together with Yavanna for her lovely passive aggressive behaviour n_n
