'See, half-brother!' he said. 'This is sharper than thy tongue. Try but once more to usurp my place and the love of my father, and maybe it will rid the Noldor of one who seeks to be the master of thralls.'
Apsolutely lovely seen!! The expressions are great! Like especially Fingolfin when he's so calm even thoug FŽanor could kill him any second. I, too, have drawn a pic about this (actually it was the same sentence that facinated me) but it was quite long ago so the drawing isn't the best. Anyway, I love this! Sraight to my favorites!
Great portrayal of that scene! Yours and Kasiopea's are so far the best portrayals I've seen. Fingolfin seems so calm, he shows that he's not scared of his half-brother. And Feanor is...well, his usual Feanorean self Angry, intense and dangerous(at this moment). Well done !
I love the intensity to this piece. You've shown a lot of emotion, and it's definitely one of my favorite portrayals of this scene I especially love Fingolfin's cool regard to his hot-headed brother. Well done!
The main problem with this picture is that you made the elves look like Atani. Elves do not have such square jaws. It is also awkward to hold the point of the sword to someone's throat like that - it is much easier to hold the edge of the blade to their throat, though it is harder to draw that.
Over all, very nice picture, I like the style you used.
This is brilliant: the intensity of FŽanor's expression, Fingolfin's calmness while being held at swordpoint, the palpable tension. I can't decide if FŽanor held the sword up close or at arm's length, but I thought the blade was supposed to be "set against Fingolfin's breast." Regardless, a wonderful scene. You truly captured it magnificently. :nods: Oh, FŽanor...
But you know what? You've captured their expressions so well - FŽanor with his condescending sneer and Fingolfin with his almost calm exasperation - that it doesn't look wrong. In fact, it looks perfectly right. I've always pictured FŽanor holding the sword at an arm's length to his half-brother's throat, but this is perfectly natural.
