Fingolfin's Last Ride by EcthelionF Fingolfin's Last Ride by EcthelionF
Lord of all Noldor
A star in the night
And a bearer of hope
He rides into his glorious battle alone
Farewell to the valiant warlord

- Time Stands Still, from Nightfall in Middle-earth by Blind Guardian

A tribute to Fingolfin, the most valiant and proud Elven King of old.

I referred to a screen capture from the LotR movies for the posture.

Nice drawing and good job. Congrats!

About the scene; i think he must have some more anger and revenge in his face. The book describes even his eyes were shining because of what he became after all those he had lost at The Sudden Flame..

Thank you, :)

Actually I did try putting some radiance into his eyes, however, it turned out funny...

So I decided to simply go for the 'gleamed as a star' description...

and truly he shines like a star, well done with that shining. =)

I see you've worked on most of the famous Noldor kings in your gallery.
But what about me? Won't you draw something for father of all Noldor? :D

...I feel a little reluctant to say this, but...oh well, I really don't like Finwe that much! :D I'll blame it on all the annoying little details listed about him in HoMe 10...

Oh my! Come on! =D What annoying details it might be, i don't understand.
Do you mean "Chapter 10" with "HoMe 10"? I couldn't find anything about Finwe in Chapter 10.

Oh no, it's History of Middle-earth 10, Morgoth's Ring. There are a lot more things about Finwe, Miriel and Indis there and most of them do not make Finwe look good, I have to say...

I had no idea that there is such a big documentation, other than stories in the Silmarillion. Silly me :noir:

I will read them ASAP.
I've always imagined Finwe as glorious as other first kings, even if there's not much about him in Silmarillion.
And the lost of Miriel always makes me sad. I hope those things you mentioned are not really big deal, and i hope i won't loose my respect for Finwe. =/

Lovely, lovely colors! He's so noble (and shiny!! :D). Makes me weepy, though, knowing what comes after.
