Hoping that I don't sound too pesky, could you be so kind and share with me the photo of the model you based this art piece on? Am *very* intrigued to see that person, even if he posseses but a fraction of the beauty he has on your portrait!!! Pleeease!
Now you probably think that the original is much prettier?)

I just wanted to let you know that I put this in an art feature in my group :iconrealmsoffantasy-myth: , in the article "Realms of Fantasy and Myth: Finale - Tokien's Legacy".  You can find it here: realmsoffantasy-myth.deviantar…  ^_^

Best character in the Silmarillion and best fanart. I love it!

I'm reading The Silmarillion in this moment and I'd like to say that I really liked Feanor in the beginning of the book. But when he killed lots of the (innocent) Telleri to steal their beautifull boat, and then when he abandoned a part of the Noldor -who didn't believe in him anymore- I started to hated him. Even if he was like alot a victim of Morgoth's lies, he was going too far to be forgiven...
By the way, his pride for his Silmarils -even if it is the greatest thing he has never created- made me furious.
And even if there is a little default with his hand, I think it is the betterdrawing of Feanor I ever saw ! You're really really talented ! I wonder, with which tool did you draw all your amazing drawings/ paintings ? With a computer and a tablet or with paint ? I'm kind of jealous of you because I think I'll never do such wonderfull art as yours, and I'm sure you draw since a couple of years to be able to do such perfect peace of art !
A little default with his hand?What do you mean?Anatomical or logical?*i'm worried because I know that bad depict hands Sweating a little... 
And yes, this is a computer+a tablet.And a standard set of brushes.
I repeated many times - all the people know how to draw. Just look at the children. There is no one who would argue otherwise. Another thing - that one bother learning, while others give up. So everything is in your hands. Maybe you will never compare to Leonardo da Vinci, but you can always enjoy the process of drawing.

The hand is too small, compared to the head. That's all, don't worry about it, you draw better than me, you just have some things to improve, but your drawings are really well drawn ! ^^ So I should say it is a logical default ^^.
In one of the books of our russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov, one character says that people are not evil,but unhappy and confused. I think every character in The Silmarillion, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit (except embodiment of pure evil like Balrogs and orcs) can be understood and forgiven.Each of them had their own motives for actions. Even Morgoth could be understood in the aspirations... at least in the beginning.People tend to think as well as he did,because he was moved by envy and ambition.
Thank you for your kind words^^Yeah, I draw on the tablet in photoshop.My hands have long forgotten what paper is).It is more convenient,more economical and forests remain intact and unharmed.Don't be jealous, the drawings do not have enough detail, anatomical accuracy and skill). It is far from perfect as to Pluto.It can be said, I still continue to learn.
