Brothers by greenapplefreak Brothers by greenapplefreak
Here are the seven sons of Feanor, discussing over who is going to take what land and why can’t they go attack Morgoth head on and be done with it…

I began this drawing 3 years ago; the reason why it took me almost two years to finish it are a) this image is actually 40X34 cm aprox, b) I insisted on using my newly bought watercolors even though I have no idea who to use them, and c) the paper is not made for watercolors, so every time I took it out of its corner I could only made a few strokes before the paper got all crumpled…

Also, every time I took the pencil I changed something on them, and when I was painting Celegorm’s hair yellow I read an essay about genetics that told me the he may not be ‘yellow blonde’ but ‘silver blonde’ like his grandmother.
In short: made me doubt a lot, took a lot of time, but came rather nice at the end.

Strangely I have never seen this before, and I realise this is a ridiculously late comment xD But I can't resist, it's beautiful. I don't know how I missed it, but it's an incredible picture! You capture all their personalities so well :D

Ambarussa with their singleminded focus, they're adorable *_* I love their costumes too - matching with Stars of Feanor! Adorableeeee! Maedhros with his nose up-turned :D Maglor looking disgruntled that he has to calm yet another argument. And of course the three on the right, who need no explanation :D

this is great, I love the Feanorions :) I imagine this must have been very loud! You have captured all their different personalities in one picture: I assume it is Curufin on the end hitting the table with his fish and waving his hand about; and Caranthir looking very, very angry whilst Maedhros looks calm and more unruffled and Maglor in the blue looking soothing?

i like Caranthir, but somehow he and Curufin are always shouting.. :P

just realised I wrote fish instead of fist... or my phone autocorrected it. Still, the image of Curufin hitting the table with a fish is an amusing one :)
