Finrod.  First encounter with Edain by EKukanova Finrod.  First encounter with Edain by EKukanova
...Then he went among the sleeping people, and sat beside their dying fire where non kept watch; and he took up a rude harp which Beor had laid aside, and he played music upon it such as the ears of Men had not heared; for they had as yet no teachers in the art, save only the Dark Elves in the wild lands...

Finrod Felagund
illustration for the Silmarillion by Tolkien

The print is available.  More information via email.

What a pretty pretty Felagund (he's definitely one of my own favorites)!  And a wire-strung (silver?) harp with tuning levers, who knew? :)

You do such lovely things with light in your paintings.

maybe I'm slightly overdo the harp, (the Dark Elvs harp could look like this)), but I used a shining like a silver 'rain'  strings like the way to catch an 'enchantement' of this moment :)

well damn, this is just magnificent! i was inspired the other day by your finarfin to try my own take on finrod, but i think you've got me beat here ;) the details are incredible, in particular i love the way you did the chainmail, it just looks so real. the gold tracery on his garments also is sublime, and his face and hands, as always, are terrific.

way to knock another one out of the park. one of my favorites of yours.

happy new year!

 Ms. Kukanova may be the mistress of the Eldar, but YOU sir remain the Master of the Dwarves! (although you may have to share that one with Master Artigas if he keeps turning out works as excellent as his most recent).:D (Big Grin)

My favourite aspect is the manner in which their faces are framed by the harp; my only - extremely minor - gripe is that the harp is meant to be primitive and rustic, 'rude' as Tolkien puts it, yet this one seems so fair as to be Felagund's own. In any case, what else is there to say? As ever the rendering is exquisite.

Thank you)    That was a very old my intention to depict a spellbound faces beyound a 'silver rain' of strings))  I'm agree with you, I overdid the harp, the harp of Dark Elves could look this way, but instruments of Noldor I imaginate differently).

I guess this is just down to the semantics of the imagination, since in my view even the harps of the Avari would look far less accomplished than this. In any case, why quibble? ;)

Has the harp silver strings? That must be strange feeling to play at it. It's amazingly beautiful!!!

Thank you! I don't think, that the strings of the harp was silver, the 'shining rain' of strings is just the way to catch a magic of this moment))

Beautiful! I love the design of the harp. Clearly Elf-inspired but it's the simpler Avari/Nandor Elves of the East, not the intricate styles of Valinor and Doriath. And he has the ring of AragornHeart
