Finrod by elfkin Finrod by elfkin
Finrod isn't everyone's favorite Silmarillion character... But what the heck...

LOL! I was in a golden mood when I painted this. (Just cover your eyes so the shine doesn't blind you)

Well he's MY favorite Silmarillion character (at least most of the time :D). And your drawing is awesome.

A well realised illustration with a balanced palette; the strong line work adds to this particular elf's status and stature whilst maintaining the finesse of his people... well done!

"Finrod isn't everyone's favorite Silmarillion character..." What's there not to like, about the character and this drawing? :D

Oh, what a handsome golden elf! :D I like how he's mature but still beautiful in that androgynous elf-way. Nicely done. :)

Very beautiful rendering. An why shouldn't he be a favourite? He died a hero after contesting Sauron, didn't he? :-)

I like Finrod, though my favourite is a three way tie between Maedhros, Fingon or Glorfindel. At any rate, Finrod wasn't a wuss, he just wasn't.

I like the over all feel, the golden-ness is very nice. Though he had a silver crown, didn't he? Anywho, very good pic.

Again, I have nothing but compliments for your work. Finrod looks so freaking realistic and beautiful, I'm finding it hard to pry my eyes away.

These colors make a wonderful composition. My eyes weren't bothered, they calmed me for some reason.
I don't remember characters form Sillmarilion.. I only have the vivid picture of Turin Turambar and minstrel who was in love with Luthien. This scares me.. I have to read it again :/

This is so beautiful! Finrod is one my favourite Silmarillion elves too :)... And may I say that filthy human Beren didn't deserve his sacrifice :(... I do love the golden look, but I'm pretty sure he wore a silver crown though :D

Thank you, everyone!

This work is an older one... 2005, I believe. I had a lot of fun with it. I need to do some more Tolkien themed work. It's been a while and I always enjoyed it.

Not my favourite character (that would be Nerdanel) but this is breathtaking. He does look very elvish, for lack of a better word... definitely not just a human with pointy ears - and I love the somewhat fierce look on his face. People depict him as a wuss hiding in his caves far too often, and tend to forget that he slew a werewolf just with hands and teeth... I can definitely believe that this one did. Stunning work, favourited. Thank you for sharing.
