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

Thank you very much, Sergio! I'm truly grateful for so warm feedback!  glad you appreciate the sword,(a pair of days was spent for designing)), to draw his outfit was delighting as well), I've never made 'close up' before))   It was very old my conception (enchanted faces beyond the strings of harp), at first it was  related to another character.      ...this is a point of interest, the works which was worth less of mental and physical efforts are most appreciated)...

I'm sincere. Thats exactly after finding your Tolkien illustrations I decided to begin to do that I really love, so, may be said that you influenced me. Of course, I saw any art previously, but that not move or inflame me so. 
 DeviantArt became for me a very interesting expirience: yes, I have a good techic, but this is not a deciding factor, how I'm understood.  So, I keepping learning from many talented artists which I found here.

Your Tolkien-art never ceases to amaze me; and these words are too little to make justice of your peerless creations and skill. Your drawings are in a way like an enchantment to my/our eyes.

This is one of my most favorite scenes in The Silmarillion.

Very well done yet again. *bows head in awe*
