Is that Maedhros with long hair?

I think it is Fëanor. His family pic shows him coming in from work while his sons are children, and he has short hair. There is no reason to think his hair couldn't have grown in the meantime. On my screen the hair in the pic is dark brown, highlighted by the red of flames and perhaps some blood. Fire is the only light around at the time of the Kinslaying, if you'll recall.

Her Maedhros pics have definitively red hair. This pic is definitely not Maedhros. Hair length is subject to change but color is less likely to change.

It is interesting what you say about fire illuminating the hair - Fëanor had black hair but them it might be him? But looking to the humiliation picture Maedhros has long hair there (whereas it is short afterwards) so I think it might be him as well.

The pic title is swaying me, also. Fëanor is most likely to be named the Kinslayer, while another character would more likely be named "Maedhros at the Kinslaying" or something.

Could be she left the specific name off intentionally just so the viewer could decide. If that's the case, I'll say it's Fingon, since he's my favorite.

OK, the colour has come out really badly on this photo. Her eyes are blue and silver IRL, and her dress is deep blue (that that I have completed of it). N.B. Hair with stars in it is very time-consuming to draw [] :

At the moment her skin tone is very light; I'm going to add shadows once the rest of it is finished. My plan is to have the background very dark and starry, like Arien's picture.

I tend to draw non-humans with oversized eyes on purpose, but I kind of wish I hadn't now because she looks a bit weird. [] But I'm really pleased with the effect of the stars in her hair; I was worried about it but it's coming out very well. And the filigree jacket is beautiful; full props to Arien for her costume design. []

I've been giving some thought to the equipment that will be visible in the Fëanor pic. No, not that kind of equipment. [] [] ( [] ) []

Though I really like your picture, for me, she's not Varda, she's too much "incarnated" (yeah, difficult to put a word on that feeling [] ).

On her deviantart-page for this picture, Jenny Dolfen says,
quote:
Drawn again for Anna, Spanish Maedhros fan extraordinaire. She has finally convinced me Maedhros should have long hair... at least before his captivity. Not sure yet whether I'll allow him to grow it back after his rescue.
So Kinslayer seems to be Maedhros after all.

We're back to the "is the artist right in his own interpretations" again, aren't we?

With a picture, there is little to debate, unlike texts. She says it is Maedhros, it's Maedhros. []

I would not say it's one of my top three, but here's a couple I did for an assignment in my digital illustration class. It's definitely not to the letter, but my instructor who was completely clueless of the subject matter liked it well enough. []

Originally it was going to represent the full compliment of the Aratar--but I got overly ambitious and ran out of time. [] Also I know Ulmo is not that imposing or frightening, but I had a hard time trying to make him that way and get him to fit in well with the others (especially working in vector art), so I just went for a more stylized, classical-inspired kind of look rather than exact. Manwë, I also portrayed more "patriarchal" with a gray hair and beard than I actually envision him, to convey a kind of authority.

The image of Melkor is from the same project, and was the most fun to do out of all of them.

Yoy people surprise me!

And from what I have seen there is still life in this place.

As soon as I can I will post some new work that is almost exclusively female elf-warrior figures. There is a significant persentage of nudidty thought ...

I'm ashamed to say that I gave up on her and ripped her up in a fit of pique. I am currently working on a long-standing art proejct which actually has a chance of being published..... but I don't want to jinx it by posting any of it here. []

Nudity is fine if it's in the name of art. []

Athene helped me upload a doodle that in time will become of interest, but since I can, I will upload it here, for posting's sake.
