Let them burn by ElbenherzArt Let them burn by ElbenherzArt
I was curious how Fëanor could look with an asian approach, so I painted a little portrait inbetween work. :) Was harder than expected since I'm absolutely not used to paint people of other cultures or races, but I should do something like this more often. It's a good practice.

Ein wirklich interessanter Ansatz. Sein Zorn kommt nur vielleicht in seinem Gesichtsausdruck nicht ganz so gut rüber wie seine Entschlossenheit.

Funny that you made Feanor Asian-looking here, in my Warg Rider-AU stories, the Avari Elves are Asian and guess what? His oldest grandson by Maedhros, named Rûsa, is half-Avari on his father's side

This just looks stunning; I think I make this my personal canon version of Feanor^^
There is a strength and  fierceness in his face, it's breathtaking; and the details of gold are great.

Thank you very much! :)
I don't know why but somehow it fits with Feanor. Maybe it's the long, black hair. It reminds me very much of the old samurai's.

Really well done. I've never seen pieces taking an approach like this. A very lovely idea and illustration and as someone who is Taiwanese I find it really interesting to see an Asian elf interpretation.

I've seen asian elves already but never for Tolkien's characters, so I thought I give it a try. There is no limit to race or culture and there should be more asian interpretations. :D
