Description

"In the greatest of his achievements, Fëanor captured the light of the Two Trees to make the three Silmarils, also called the Great Jewels. He prized the Silmarils above all else, and
grew increasingly suspicious that the Valar and other Eldar coveted them. He either vainly displayed the jewels or jealously guarded them from all except his immediate family."

:star:A picture of the mighty elf, Fëanor, prince and later High-King of the Noldorian elves from JRR Tolkien's "The Silmarillion" (ancient prelude to Lord of the Rings). Here, he is in his younger days :)

I've been working on this for sometime, made for :iconmanstock:#ManStock's "Heroes and Villains fanart contest" [link]

I'd like to call Fëanor as the villain of this piece, though I never think it entirely his fault because the story is too tragic and complicated, and because the first Dark Lord, Morgoth, was mainly responsible for starting all the evils that had happened in Valinor and Middle-Earth where Feanor for the most part, is sometimes just a tool.

--------------------------------------------------

Fëanor is a great craftsman, he created many beautiful gems, the greatest of them being the Silmarils that were so pure and bright that even the Valar and all who dwelled in the
blessed realm were in awe and admiration of them, including the Dark Lord who lusted greedily after them, stole them with a murderous act of vile treachery and awakened Fëanor's
wrath. That started a long, terrible and tragic war which ate up everything upon its path in flames of ruin, deception and despair that was the main driving force of all the events and
tragedy that fell upon middle-earth in the first age.

I could go on and on...it's a big story, and one of my favourite books :XD:
Hope you like this :)
