Finely a beautiful sketch of Caranthir that does not make him look like a woman, so many do its funny Laugh and sad. Sad fayse. He's gorgeous, and he looks so serious which is perfect. I know I say this every time but I would love to see a portrait of him. Sorry I keep saying that and yes I know it does not become more profound with repatriation. With loveHeart  AlexisofRadiasHere's a kiss for you, my love!

Nice use of the reference photo, giving you deeper perspective on the figure of the horse.

I knew who this was before I even looked at the title of the picture.  You've captured Caranthir perfectly with the set of his mouth and the arrogant yet weary look in his eyes.  I love the details of the amour and the way you've drawn the horse.

To ketch an essence of a character is a most interesting part in portrait)

Great artwork.  Not many artists draw Caranthir as he's not as popular as Maglor and Maedhros.

Wonderful how you captured his stern, dark character in his grim mouth and arrogant glance, but there's something sad about him too, though he looks proud (makes me wonder if he is looking at Haleth out of the corner of his eye). I truly admire the details in the armour and how beautifully the horse is drawn. I have so much to learn about sketching, looking at this!

Thank you very much, dear friend!
Now, I trying to understand the sons of Feanor and Feanor himself, how the Oath was chenged them.  Caranthir is mostly interesting in that episode with Haleth, encounter of two races.    And thats always pleasant to draw animals, also I love to draw an armour with a mass of details =)

лошадь на фотке в каком-то не удачном для рисования ракурсе, но ты ее сильно облагородила
А Карантир отличный получился, явно что-то темное замышляет, можно целую историю придумать что именно, челюсть его только слегка смущает, он как бы говорит ей "хм")

А мне как раз очень понравилось как обрезана морда лошади, сразу внимание на всадника, а то когда и всадник, и лошадь, не понятно на кого смотреть и кто тут главный, чей вообще портрет.    мальчик попался подходящий, взгляд его понравился, решила тоже быстро нарисовать, пока мне там Карантир видится)

Не лошадь норм, просто у нее ракурс какой-то дикий, она вся в складочку в области шеи) понятно что главный всадник, но лошадь же все равно тебе пришлось исполнять причем довольно тщательно, а по твоей мысли ее вообще условно можно было обозначить
мальчик да, хорошенький... вообще модель должна вдохновлять художника, а то все становиться унылой рутиной без искры)

Какой он настороженный. Смотрит на что-то (или все же кого-то?)) и с интересом, и с недоверием. 
Я тоже его с таким взглядом исподлобья рисовала несколько раз. Располагает он к этому)

Характер у него был вспыльчивый и надменный, помнится, так что мне показалось вполне уместное выражение, благо очень подходящий референс попался, (для лица), и как-то всё сложилось в его портрет).   Ну да, они с Халет как бы диптих))   А нарисовать что-то быстро, пока  впечатление и эмоция свежая, оказывается очень даже по кайфу)), в цвете сделать что-то быстрей чем за 3 недели мне слабо, а вот карандашом можно)
