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.

I love the Sons of Feanor TM...
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 Maglor looking disgruntled that he has to calm yet another argument. And of course the three on the right, who need no explanation
That's so true and so hilarious! Thanks for making my day!
yes! i'm glad each brother is more or less well-represented!
i like Caranthir, but somehow he and Curufin are always shouting..
I understand Maedhros completely (even though I'm the eldest of 3, not 7 ...) but siblings will be siblings ... *sigh*
I like how the Ambarussa seem oblivious to the arguments broken out by the others!
I hated getting so fond of these guys, and reading how one by one, 6 of them died.
I agree... I felt like it was a countdown, and I was dreading the moment I had to read about Maglor's or Maedhros' death... the later was kinda cool though...
...I wonder if i can find an emoticon that trully expresses my despair.... mmhh... in any case. yeah, I know one of the twins dies after getting cold feet and trying to go back stashed in one of the ships. Sniff!
but I was planning on a really AUish universe here, it really blows to have 7 kids and read how they die one by one. So a room full of the sons of Feanro makes me happy!
The three C's always seem to shout loudest, too. And there's Maglor calming everyone down. Bless him.
I love Maedhros' "Say what I want, I'm not arguing with you" expression. Absolutely wonderful take on all of them!
I'm a big fan of you! it makes em very happy to hear you like it!
yeah, I figure with a family as large as theirs, you have 3-4 conversations happenng at the same time!
The best part here in Caranthir's hand!!! I think he wants to kill something It's hilarious!
And Maglor -of course- is the only one who isn't complaining about something. (apart from Amabarussa)
I think this is the best of your Feanorian drawings!
and yeah, I think I love Caranthir too, if he had Jedi powers, several of hsi brothers would be dead by now!
It looks like the twins are the only ones doing something worthwhile; Maedhros is trying to remind everyone that he's the oldest (and in charge), Maglor is trying to calm down Celegorm, and well, the three C's are always arguing, no surprises there! One of the best things is that from the way Caranthir's hand is curled, it looks like he's imagining strangling his oldest brother. They're all gorgeous! (Even when they're angry and yelling.) I particularly like Maglor - he's my #2 after Maedhros normally, but his clothing is awesome and I like his hair.
In a few moments, Curufin, who feels that Maedhros is not listening to him enough, will pick up a book a throw it at Maedhros, Amrod and Amras will slip under the table with the map and continue expanding their territory, Maglor will try to break up the fight between his older brother and Curufin, Celegorm will accidentally (or maybe not) hit Maglor for getting in the way, and Caranthir will stand up and start yelling even louder. Pandemonium, anyone?
...oh, I'll love to see Curufin throw a book at Maedhros...and then see how far he runs before Maedhros slams a chair at his back (still he oldest: has to show who's boss)
Amrod and Amras: Let's ignore these idiots and take charge.
Maedhros:I don't care what you guys think...I'm the leader out here!
Maglor:*trying to be reasonable, as usual*
Celegorm: NO NO NO NO NO! This cannot work...!
Caranthir: My GOD Maedhros, will you LISTEN to what I have to say?
Curufin: *tries to get into the argument, but no one listens*
I love it.
