Finrod and the kindred of Beor by edarlein Finrod and the kindred of Beor by edarlein
Now men awoke and listened to Felagund as he harped and sang, and each thought that he was in some fair dream, until he saw that his fellows were awake also beside him; but they did not speak or stir while Felagund still played, because of the beauty of the music and the wonder of the song. Wisdom was in the words of the Elven-king, and the hearts grew wiser that hearkened to him; for the things of which he sang, of the making of Arda, and the bliss of Aman beyond the shadows of the Sea, came as clear visions before their eyes, and his Elvish speech was interpreted in each mind according to its measure. (JRR Tolkien, Silmarillion)

Hi! Great work...

I used this picture in a post on Tolkien over at my blog: truemyths.org/2015/02/10/the-s….

Hope that's OK! Please let me know if otherwise...

One of the most profoundly beautiful scenes that Tolkien wrote, you do an excellent job of portraying Finrod's humility and heart of gold.

Great job. I like this way more than Nasmith's version. Your Finrod actually looks handsome, as he's supposed to be.

I regret Finrod has so sad a face whereas he is singing. :)

Did you inspire yourself from a picture of Alan Lee or anybody ? Looks similar to a picture I already saw.

There is a picture by Ted Nasmith, which idea I like, but it seems to me, Finrod there is a bit ugly :(

Not ugly, just too "serious" and concerned for this particular situation.

You may give "credit" of Ted Nasmith since the picture looks similar. :)

I did a (very bad) drawing of this scene when I was in High School, the scene always struck me as very visual, and I think you captured it quite well ^^
