Fingon by Venlian Fingon by Venlian
Fingon is the elder son of Fingolfin. He was one of the first to follow Feanor and his friend of childhood Maedros. J.R.R. Tolkien "Silmarillion"

This picture shows the episode when Feanor left Fingolfin's army in snows and ice when departed on ships to Middle-Earth. Feanor burned the ships when reached the land so Fingolfin and his elves had to go through the Grinding Ice and it was deadly dangerous pass.

"Fingon watched at storming waves madly in hope that one of white ships will come up from the storm and return – but the empty freezing sea roared before him. And then Fingon groaned in powerless rage and despair, like a wounded animal and sticking his white fingers into stone he fell on his knees, clenching teeth and tears swept from his open eyes. The huge wave rolled on pier, breaking and lifting an ice crest to the sky, falling down like a waterfall. Fingon wasn't weak, his heart never knew fear before the enemies, many of elves called him The Brave, but now his throat wrung with weakness. Maedros... my faithful friend... has betrayed me." (c)

Фингон, как мне думается, является одним из тех персонажей "Сильмариллиона", которым можно бесконечно восхищаться: преданный друг (спас Маэдроска), бесстрашный, мужественный и благородный эльф, да и просто красавец-мужчина. Что мастерски отобразил художник в своей картине. Видна глубокая симпатия художника к этому персонажу (и даже больше, чем просто симпатия), что передается и зрителю.


Fingon, I think, is one of those characters, "Silmarillion", which you can admire the infinite: the devoted friend (rescued Maedros), a fearless, courageous and noble elf, and just a handsome man. That displayed the masterful artist in his picture. Visible to the artist's deep sympathy for this character (and even more than just sympathy), which is transmitted and the viewer.

He is like a beautiful fairy-tale prince. For some reason I remembered tsarevitch Gvidon in an episode, where he shoots an arrow to save the Swan. Probably, the analogy has gone from remembering that Fingon is an archer too, well and clothes details, most likely influenced intussusceptions.
The most important thing that is evident and rises admiration – that he is unusual. I do not know, I can not remember the examples when character in a picture was so lovely, and so tremendously handsome, but it would be thus visible that he is keen, feeling, of flesh and blood, and that he is feeling now is so familiar to us, he seems to be caught at the moment of sharpest and strongest showing of emotions. It seems that artist seen it, lived it, suffered together with the character and drawn for us.
There are things that I’m simply fetishing on.:) First, his hair – it seems to me that this is an amazing combination of black with blue eyes and light clothes. Because of this the face is like framed, the sight is always on it. In the second, the skin on his shoulders. Also snow around and such cold background. The necessary feeling of this character is created at once. The cold is outside, this cold tempers, but heart and soul of Fingon only becomes hotter from collision with reality. Not in vain he was called the Prince of the North. This place remarkably suits him. Because he has a strong will and not afraid of difficulties.
It seems to me that the condition described in the citation, is ideally shown. Both pain, and bewilderment, and aversion of betrayal of his friend, and at the same time, he remains strong, he suffers, but does not break. This is very remarkable in Fingon! That he is able to feel desperately, but feelings do not make him weak, feelings push him forward on improbable and fine on force of nobleness and friendship acts. Such as forgiveness and rescue of Maedhros.


Он похож на прекрасного сказочного принца. Почему-то сразу мне вспомнился царевич Гвидон в эпизоде, где он метко пускает стрелу из лука, чтобы спасти Лебедь. Наверное, пошла аналогия, что Фингон тоже лучник, ну и детали одежды, скорее всего, повлияли на восприятие.
Что самое главное, что бросается в глаза и что восхищает – то, что он необыкновенный. Не знаю, не могу вспомнить примеры, чтобы герой на картине был и возвышен, и исключительно красив, но при этом было бы видно, что он живой, чувствующий, из плоти и крови, и то что он испытывает сейчас, нам это тоже знакомо, он как будто подловлен в момент самого острого и самого сильного проявления своих эмоций. Художник как будто это увидел, прожил и выстрадал вместе с героем и нарисовал для нас.
Есть вещи, на которые я просто фетиширую. :)Во-первых, волосы – мне кажется, что это изумительное сочетание черного с голубыми глазами и светлой одеждой. Из-за этого обрамления сразу замечательно выделяется лицо, взгляд все время на нем. Во вторых, шкура у него на плечах. Еще и снег вокруг и такой холодный фон. Сразу создается нужное ощущение этого героя. Холод снаружи, этот холод закаляет, но сердце и душа Фингона становятся только горячее от столкновения с реальностью. Не зря его называли Принцем Севера. Это место замечательно ему подходит. Потому что у него сильная воля и потому что он не боится трудностей.
Мне кажется, что состояние, описанное в цитате, передано идеально. Это и боль, и недоумение, и неприятие предательства друга, и в то же время, он остается сильным, он страдает, но не ломается. Это и замечательно в Фингоне! То, что он умеет остро чувствовать, но чувства не делают его слабым, чувства толкают его вперед на невероятные и прекрасные по силе благородства и дружбы поступки. Такие как прощение и спасение Маэдроса.

I saw this, and I was stunned. This drawing depicts what is probably the most beautiful face I have ever seen. This is going to sound meaningless and clichéd, but I really don't think I've ever seen a more attractive person, real or fictional. Everything about this is fantastic and he looks real enough to touch! And to respond to that critique, technically he /is/ a fairy tale prince! XD Sometimes I joke that Fingon is the prettiest prince(ss).
