Black is the color by formenost Black is the color by formenost
Finally a version of feanor i'm happy with... (well, for the time being). Now i can switch to another elf lord.
I choose to give him a "early middle age" style (no plate armor or articulated thingy, nor even gauntlet or mail pants) because I think X or XII century style are closest from tolkien vision than XV. Besides I found chainmail more sexy than full plate ! But i suppose visions move with the mood...
Feanor is dressed in black of course (but he has a blazon, unlike morgoth) and, being an elf, doesn't look totally nasty.

thanks to =elegaer for the star on the tunic (take a look at her stuff on geometric banners and other knotworks)

to finish you can look at those old painting of feanor, they are ideous !! :)

I think I'm in love with your armor -- well, Feanor's armor.

Regardless of who it belongs to, I love that armor.

I love your Tolkien elves. Too often I see them rendered effeminate and well, they're just not, especially the Noldor. Good work!

It seems he is worn green clothe. as I know, the Green belongs to Sindar and Nandor. the Red is the color of Noldor. Totally its good.

Feanor looks fey, just exactly as he was.
Nice.

Lovely work, just like the rest of your gallery! Unfortunately, the choice of chain-mail is slightly anachronistic since the Dwarves of Belegost and Nogrod were the first to devise this armour, and obviously Feanor never met with one of the Naugrim. However, this is just me at my canonical worst, it no way detracts from the piece. Keep up the great work!

obviously you are right. i have chosen chainmail to counter the idea of full plate that we currently are seeing here and there !
mmh the next time elf champions will be in robes and leather. Perhaps i will concentrate on the shield.

anyway thanks for the support !

Oh, I agree. I'm not much of a plate mail fan when it comes to Tolkien's works, maybe just a little bit here and there, but generally no. I would consider maybe fish-scale, or studded armour?
