Fëanor for Feanore
Second art giveaway winner's request, way back when I got over 1000 followers on tumblr.

Feels like I haven't painted anything in aaaages! This was so much fun.
I tried to keep the "light of Valinor" on his face and in his eyes, as if both were glowing a bit. Also tried to have him look old and harsh but young and beautiful at the same time .__. Not sure if I succeeded at something so ambitious.

You did keep the light in his eyes. He looks arrogant, as he should be. Very well done!

Gorgeous! I think you did great in the "age" of his face. I imagine elves over 2000 to have at least a matured face. Like that of a human in their mid 30s. It annoys me when people draw these incredibly ancient elves looking like 20somethings forgetting or ignoring how old the character actually is

Thanks! The credit goes to the requester who provided me with their preferred face ref :)

A lovely rendering.

You really brought out his haughty dickishness, too!

Haha "haughty dickishness" describes Fëanor so well
And thanks!
