Kinslayer by ElbenherzArt Kinslayer by ElbenherzArt

Fëanor.

Concept Illustration for my Silmarillion themed animation movie. : )

Gosh, so sorry for vanishing again. The movie really ate like ALL of my time and isn't half way what I'd like to have it. The stress, the pain, the tears of frustration I endured over this already. You have no idea. And everything for a degree I also would have gotten with something much easier.
However, I'm nearly done and I'm still going to upload all the other stuff.

Feanor looks very dark and 'evil' here and maybe even a bit like Morgoth. He is not a nice elf. But that's my intention. I completely wanted to focus on his dark and paranoid side which plays a huge role in my movie. I know he also is a loving father. I at least assume he is...in a way. Otherwhise he wouldn't have 7 children with Nerdanel. Or he is just sex obsessed? XD Haha, no. We know that he is not in Tolkien's mind. What you do with him in Fanfiction is another thing entirely. (Please link me all the smut!)

I love this! He looks scary, as he's supposed to, and I love that you added the blood on his sword, to match the title.

Although I probably wouldn’t like to cross his path ;) he looks quite intimidating...but wait, that makes him all the more interesting ;))

Well, he is intimidating. It's Feanor. He has a lot of sass up his ass. xD

I suppose it's just my literal-mindedness that makes me want to go: but, but, when he still had the Silmarils he wasn't a kinslayer yet and, when he was a kinslayer, he didn't have the Silmarils anymore...
But  I guess you want to say here that he always had the potential or something like that...

I know that. I think he also does not fight in these kind of long and annoying clothes. Sword and Silmarils alike are likely to be seen as symbolism here. Something to enhance his paranoid/dark side. Since this illustration needs to show this side of his character I thought it fit to incorporate. Also it looks more cool and dramatic. As an Illustrator you sometimes have to do choices that look more interesting and gives a better readability to the character shape-wise. The image would have been kinda boring without sword and jewels. : )

I did. It still matches my mental image of Morgoth far more closely than that of Feanor.

Yes, it was intention to display his dark side. Feanor is definitely not a nice elf.

Inkstranger on tumblr have a suggestion that it actually was Nerdanel who is sex-crazy, and wanted many kids XD

Feanor may not be so sure about having kids, given what happened to Miriel at his begetting and birth

Die Beschreibung ist sehr geil. Wenn du die Links, sofern du welche erhältst, an mich weiterleitest, wäre ich dir sehr verbunden. ;)

Aber echt, das Design ist so klasse! Deine Idee, den "negativeren" Teil seiner Persönlichkeit eher wiederzuspiegeln finde ich sehr interessant. ich bin schon gespannt auf weitere Arbeitsschnipsel von dir. :dummy:

Silmarillion ist bei mir so lange her... manchmal sehe ich Fan Art zu einigen Personen und denke "ach, dich gibt's ja auch noch....". Damals wusste ich noch nicht mal, dass es Fanfictions gibt und habe dementsprechend auch nie welche gesucht. :dummy: Aber wäre sicher lustig zu lesen.

Aber immer doch! Bei ihm finde ich ja so klasse, dass er hart an der "dunklen Seite der Macht" lang schrammt. Auf deinen Film bin ich schon super gespannt.
