很漂亮!But also very scary. It gave me chills, and my Chinese is not good enough yet to be able to express that so it had to be done in english.

I really love his stance in this. That plus the flowing hair and robes make it really dramatic and intense.

His face looks a bit younger than I like to imagine FŽanor, but the pose and the armor are just awesome.

He looks reckless, but almost remorseful - as if knowing what Doom he would cause, yet choosing to ignore it. ....I could write a fic based on that... *starts typing*

He looks too young and a little too soft for FŽanor for me. Other than that it's quite good.

I always imagined him with sharper features - less baby-chub around the jawline, more steel-strong will in the brow and jaw... But, as always, your interpretation is amazing!

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?

You may imagine he was standing upon a huge rock, preparing to lead his people to war. I must admit that this was not so precisely done, anatomy problems did exist.:XD:

Awesome! Good angle. I *love* his armor! Nice gleaming sword too--nice work on the expression as well! Good, dark-coloured background. Perfect. Perfect Feanor.

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.

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!
