Fingon and Maedhros

Date: July 7, 2003
Medium: CGI (Paint Shop Pro with a mouse
Comment: I decided to do some different characters from the usual array of Fëanor, Finrod, Idril, Luthien, etc. Melian's pic was one of these, and this was the next. This picture was a real pain to do, though—Fingon's face was redone in full at least three times (thank the Lord that I didn't draw it on paper, or I would have erased a hole in it), and I was constantly trying to fix the proportions of both Fingon and Maedhros. Maedhros is supposed to be slightly in front of his cousin, and, before I'm asked, yes, his hand is gone—but I didn't show that. They are both wearing clothing that I considered appropriate to their standings and activities in Beleriand. Fingon, as the son of the king, is dressed more elegantly and Maedhros is wearing colors of nature, as a frequent traveler. I consider this one of my better CG pictures, but with the amount of time I spent on it, I couldn't have considered it complete otherwise.
