Fingon by jankolas Fingon by jankolas
Eldest of Fingolfin's children, who inherited the Kingship of the Noldor after his father was slain by Morgoth. He is famed for rescuing Maedhros from Thangorodrim, and thereby healing the rift between the Houses of the Noldor. As High King, he commanded the assault upon Morgoth that became known as the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, the Unnumbered Tears, and in that assault he was himself slain by Gothmog, Lord of Balrogs.

It's charcoal and chalk drawing. His face is finished with tempera.

The lips of my men, i´m drawing are looking a bit ... well there is no word. ;-) The problem in this is, that i love men who have lucious, sensual and full lips.

I have commented already. But I MUST tell you. This is the greatest Noldorin elf I have ever seen. You gave Fingon a worthy presence. You have shown me that it IS possible for humans to capture an unknowable beauty. I do not have the artistic ability to create something so fine, so I must seek out the handiwork of the great artists here at deviant. Thank you for this masterpiece. Thank you for making this character so true, so honest. As you can see, the Silmarillion is dear to me and it is a treat when others can bring my own deep imaginations to life, as I cannot. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! You have so much to share; please bless us with more of your Tolkien vision.

He looks absolutely amazing! And that mini-bio was impressive too. Really like his expression, and the 3-dimensional look you've got here. I've always loved the stories of Fingon and Maedhros, but that's probably because they're so tragic... (Sorry, I don't really know much about art, I just like looking at other people's work.)

Pretty! ^-^ He looks very contemplative and noble. I love the contrast between the smoothness of the face and the rougher texture of the robes and background.
