The flame that burns bright, can also warm a cold heart!

Here is the 3rd and final sketch from my request promt, Fëanor for @curufinwefeanaro, and while it is a little more mellow than the other two (timewise anyways) I really like it. Fëanor is as many of you might know, one of my favorite characters of Silmarillion, which is why it was SO hard to sketch him how I wanted (this is the third and only successful attempt). So he ended up being very young, I’m thinking 13 to 15 in human years, maybe when or right before he med Nerdanel.

I was thinking of his fiery spirit, and considering that he is passionate and has a fury inside, he must also have the very warm and loving heart. Thinking of that I couldn’t stop imagining how sweet he must’ve been in his young years, and bring warmth and happiness into the life of his father, especially after the loss of his mother. Also he must’ve been so sweet and loving to Nerdanel and their children, before things went bad and he was devoured by his inner fury.

Oh, the more I think of him I love him more, and I hope you like him too.

This was my last of the request promts, and I have to say it’s been a very rewarding and fun experience open up to you awesome followers like this. I’ve gotten in contact with some of you who I have never talked to, which I love, always wonderful to talk Tolkien to new people. And I can with reasurance say that I will do another one of these! <3

  • Tolkien:By the end of the Third Age, Sauron's physical power is so diminished that his presence is confined to the tower of Barad-Dur. However, he is still immensely powerful in his ability to watch and predict the movements of his enemies, and his understanding extends so far that he could metaphorically be referred to as a Great Eye, constantly watching and planning his next move. And because his gaze is so piercing, it is sometimes likened to fire.
  • Peter Jackson:Okay but...hear me out...what if Sauron was literally....a Great Eye.
  • Tolkien:What.
  • Peter Jackson:What if he was literally a giant eyeball on the top of Barad-Dur.
  • Tolkien:That's not quite what I inten-
  • Peter Jackson:Made of FIRE. A LITERAL GIANT FIERY EYEBALL.
Nazgul Giving Sauron Their Report After Getting Drowned in The River Bruinen.
  • Nazgul:So, we made a couple of small mistakes.
  • Sauron:You stabbed pillows thinking they were hobbits.
  • Nazgul:Okay then Lord Perfect, medium sized mistakes.

“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
