Never been a real Feanorean fan (prefering his eldest halfbrother's family), but your Feanor is one hot piece. You did a great job with his armor and shining sword. Awesome pose, making him fierce and beautiful.
Overall nice picture, and better than many of the sketches of FŽanŠro. There are problems with his anatomy, but since this is an older work I imagine you can see them quite well yourself. My main question for you is, what is he doing in this picture? Most of the motion in this picture would suggest he is moving forward. His cape makes it look like he is faling. His legs make him look like he is leaning back getting ready to lunge, his expression looks annoyed and determined, but not particularly urgent as I would guess it to be were he fighting. So what is he doing?
KYAAAAAAAAAAA I shall fangirl elsewhere xDD But...oh my god Feanor... *dies of awesome* Possibly my favourite Elf from you, which is saying a hell of a lot ^-^ I love his expression! Especially his eyes...and the way you shaded everything...
You know, this is one of the only modern elf designs I like. This is really nice. The armour is simple and functional and your painting is very clean. Design is very professional and elegant. Very nice work. Nice profile of Faenor's face, too. The various diagonals, counterbalancing one another in composition, is my favourate aspect, and the red swathes of colour. Very well done image.
Hello, my name is Martin and im part of the Tolkien Asociation of Argentina, we are a nonprofit group devoted to promote Tolkien's work and culture in general.
We are planing to do a litlle exibition of tolkien related art so we wanted to ask you for your permission to print and exhibit some of your wonderfull pictures because we think that besides been beautiful they really capture the spirit of the characters.
Hoping for a positive response. We say namárië Annali len
Picture is perfect - he looks young, but not too much. I don't like those versions where he looks like middle-aged. (Elves are not supposed to become old!) In his eyes I can see something that tells he has seen a lot. But I think armour has got too much influences from second & third age armours... and expecially from "the movie versions"! Everything else is perfect. *faves*
I love this picture, Feanor's pose is very dynamic, and the details and colours are lovely. The dark clouds in the background, the red cloak all seem to symbolize the strife and bloodshed Feanor was the cause of.
Why are all of your Elves so beautiful? This has to be one of your best...and you made him just as fair as Tolkien said Feanor was. I love, love, LOVE his expression. Very beautiful work, I hope you do more! It's very satisfying to see these beloved characters drawn and colored so gorgeously!
Oh, how lovely! I admit I'm a bit of a fangirl, so seeing such a wonderful depiction of my favourite character is wonderful... I'd seen your other Elf pictures elsewhere but never this one, so it's an especially pleasant surprise!
