Wow, this is fantastic! All your Silmarillion portraits are incredible, such wonderful work! I love Fingon's expression and the detail you put into each painting. Now I have to ask... any chance you will draw Finrod sometime?
Omg Finrod wearing the Nauglamir would be amazing! Having seen all your other Silmarillion art work I am sure your vision of Finrod would be absolutely stunning! I will often visit your page just to gaze at your beautiful paintings. Thank you very much for sharing them with us!
Usually I see something whose photo that touches me. And I just think, and, well, it's exactly this character, we all when we read somehow represent them, however, after Peter Jackson's much easier to do, but about performance, it's always a little watercolor and splatter in Photoshop, all very easy)
That's awesome! What I love about your work besides how beautiful it is, is that you have captured a lot of how I see the characters in my mind when reading the books. Sure, some I may see a little differently, but your art is such that it really fits a lot of how I imagine they would look (which is why I asked about whether you would draw Finrod someday.. my favourite . And besides that, yours are the best Tolkien portraits I have seen by far! Sorry for the long comment, but really appreciate you sharing your work here on deviantart... thanks!!
Очень красивый портрет!!! как всегда, прекрасная композиция. Но особенно нравится раскраска на лице))) эх, давно мне хочется то воткнуть перо в причёску,(особенно Белегу), то лицо раскрасить кому-нибудь, но как-то не решалась))) Вы же это сделали, и это прекрасно!!!
I love this idea, too, my first Laiquendu (mercifully forgotten now ) had feathers in his hair. recently I came back to this idea and plan to do a proper portrait of Laiquendi, to me they're the closes to what we imagine - or dream - the Native Americans were. Respect for nature and animals they plan to hunt, this is something all of the Quendi would feel in the beginning but I imagine would stay strongest among the Laiquendi, and later all the Nanador and Avari. Noldor had it in the beginning, but they locked themselves in stone walls forging swords. Still Findekáno is close to nature in my eyes, thus I love the interpretation ~kimberly80 has painted.
Sure thing, the idea is great, yet, it's not that new. Many authors have been exploiting the tribal themes for painting elves. I've not seen the Tolkien's elves painted that way that often, though. I'm positive, you should elaborate this theme. Just don't get stuck on Native Americans here, there are plenty other cool tribal cultures to look at
I fully support this idea, elves should be close to nature, so sometimes I draw animals) A Findekano exactly Indian, in armor, but with feathers, maybe he gave Thorondor pen))) and if the tattoo is not as children Darin, then battle bodyart, why not ... By the way, you are not the first who wrote to me about it, many share this image, do not know what Google translated)))
Да,я тоже за этнику, я одну картинку видела, автора к сожалению не вспомню( на ней был вроде Трандуил, но где то там вдалеке, а на первом плане стояла стража и это было очень круто, потому что они были в доспехах, перьях, листьях и с копьями в руках и чуть ли не в тату, ну реально индейцы с амазонки)мне дико понравилось, потому что не обычно...
