Light of Valinor by jeddibub Light of Valinor by jeddibub
Please full view to do this justice, it looks a little weird in thumbnail but has this depth. Can't explain it but please give it a look if you can :)

Another piece of quick sketch work manipulated with Photoshop CS. This piece was more about creating a mood or feeling, focusing heavily on a sense of mystery or sorrow or obsession. I intended with the sketch for this to be Feanor (of the Silmarils), but please do not crucify me if he is supposed to be blond or not carry a staff or any other detail. Judge this by what you feel, not what you know. :)

...Wow I think I just had a Zen moment. *prunes her bonsai while meditating on a hill* :P

Ah, why nis he in scrups? Not Fnor as I see hm, but very good image. You've caught the feeling of creating light :thumbsup:
He would do also nice Finw guiding his folk to Aman :)

Curufinw Fanro was definitely raven black haired and your elves do the justice for all the dark haired Tolkien elves, so messed in the movie. Except golden haired Vanyar, most of elves had dark hair, with some exceptions, of course.

@__@ *licks*

I lurve it, Core! You are the best artist I know. =3

The hands are beautiful, the costuming is awesome ... well ... just about everything blows me away. ^__^ Especially the expression.

Yes the hands!!!!! I'm glad you noticed! I actually did hands half decently. Hands and faces are my bane but I think I went alright with this pic.

Thank you miss phia! :D I always love your comments! And no mention of man skirts surprisingly. :P

Oooh, you're right, the depth... Very nice :) And the facial expression :( So sad and concentrated :(

Hahaha! Don't bring up Elven hair-colors! Poor gold-seven routinely gets picked at for giving Tolkien Elves the 'wrong' color of hair...except that she hasn't! The Noldor were, with a few notable exceptions, dark-haired.

Well done on this, though. I love the flow of the whole thing.

That's the reason why I put that warning there! That poor artist get's almost torn apart by scary fans claiming the hair is wrong, the clothes are wrong and anything else. Can't they just appreciate the wonderful brilliance of those gorgeous works?

Thank you for commenting! It took me ages to get it just so and I must admit I'm pleased with it (which is rare for me) :)
