Finrod.  First encounter with Edain by EKukanova Finrod.  First encounter with Edain by EKukanova
...Then he went among the sleeping people, and sat beside their dying fire where non kept watch; and he took up a rude harp which Beor had laid aside, and he played music upon it such as the ears of Men had not heared; for they had as yet no teachers in the art, save only the Dark Elves in the wild lands...

Finrod Felagund
illustration for the Silmarillion by Tolkien

The print is available.  More information via email.

oh sweet brave Finrod, only true heir of noble Finwë. He who never ceased to be kind to all, even in a world of hate. But I'm preaching to the choir, you clearly love him too :) very well done.

I love this drawing and I always loved Finrod Felagund, one of my beloved elves in The Silmarillion, I named a main character of my novel after him! :)
Excellent work!

Very, very fine. One of my top favorites of your work, Elena.
The faces looking through the harp are magical, as if they are seeing Finrod through the music.

Thank you very much, Steve!   It was my very old idea, at first of legendary bard Taliesin, to draw the faces of listeners through the silver rain of the strings).

AWESOMENESS!!! I love his hair, his clothes, his sword and... YOU PUT IN THE RING OF BARAHIR! And I love the faces of the people in the background! (I guess because of Ted Nasmith's (very cool) illustration I never considered the fact that there would be families there. XP) I'm not usually this dramatic, but ugh, this is so awesome, and I'm getting a feels overload because of this amazing guy's fate.... *sniff*

You are my favorite Tolkien artist. I have seen a great great deal of them, but your depiction... it seems so magical and in my opinion perfectly catches the essence of Arda. I love the way you do swords and faces by the way.

I'm partial to blues, but the way you balance all the shades of blue in this composition, is really nice. :)

Truly beautiful, and it gives me an evocative atmosphere of soothing music.
