Aure Entuluva by MirachRavaia Aure Entuluva by MirachRavaia

Utulië'n aurë! Auta i lómë! Aurë entuluva!
"The night is passing! The day has come! Day will come again!"


(Elvish battle cry in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. Before the battle, Fingon cried out ‘Auta i lómë!’, to which the warriors responded ‘Utulië’n aurë!’. When Turgon made his retreat, the Men under Húrin’s command held the rearguard. Turgon’s last sight of Húrin was of the Man surrounded by a pile of dead orcs shouting ‘Aurë entuluva!’)

This is a hand-painted t-shirt, as a contest price for :iconladyelleth: whose picture

placed 1st in the "Between the lines" contest of :iconthelotrclub:, :iconelves-of-tolkien: and :iconarda-inspired:.
The credit for the idea goes to *LadyElleth. Only the sword is my idea, and the elf in the design is supposed to be Fingon. The tengwar transcription of the quote was also provided by her.

This is another one that would make a great screen printed shirt. I think it would be popular as well. :D

I'm just wondering, wouldn't it be copyright infigenment to sell t-shirts with Tolkien motive?

You know, the only thing in the design I'd have any question about is the elvish script. But I am going to say I would be surprised.
That being said I have heard MANY stories about just how litigious the Tolkien Estate is so I suppose it could be a risk.
But if you check around Red Bubble, Zazzle and many other Tee printing sites you wouldn't think so.

You could always ask the question here of how many people would be interested in a shirt, see how many you'd need to have printed then take orders, print them up at a custom shop and sell them here r through etsy.

I can paint a similar one for you :) The design would not be entirely the same, as all my t-shirts are unique, so if you want it, we can discuss what to change. And I would not ask for your kidney, just 25€ :)

I am very, very seriously pondering that! Have you got a page where I can see all your designs and prices, or is it all custom-tailored?

All my shirts are here: [link] - but I never paint the same design twice, they are all unique, so you can choose the motif yourself. And I usually don't sell them, they are gifts for friends, or prizes in contests I organize. I would love to paint one for you as a thank-you gift for the wonderful Tolkien art you create :)

That shirt rocks so much! That line is probably my favorite out of the entire Silmarillion. "Aurė entuluva!" :w00t:
And your calligraphy is beautiful, by the way.

May I ask what you used to paint the shirt? :)

MirachRavaia Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
White and gold textile colors (I use DecoArt, but there are many other brands), and a golden contour for silk painting, which works on other types of fabric quite well, too.
