Halls of Mandos : Fëanor and Fingolfin.

You know how sometimes you have a really clear image in your mind when you write a story?  I managed to paint the image.  Well, almost.  The faces aren’t quite right.  I can see them so clearly in my head, why can’t I get them on paper?  *weeps* (The story was this one)

Though I do think that a week of intensively drawing and painting has helped.  Now I just need to keep practicing rather than wandering off to mow the lawn. (though I'm starting to get scared of the lawn.  There could be anything in there by now.  Sometimes Brythen goes out and spends half an hour or more hunting in it.  I don't think I want to know what he's hunting.   I'm hoping it's just rabbits.

Fingolfin's face was closer to right in the pencil sketch, but Feanor's is probably closer to how it looks in my head in the painted version.  Feanor glows because he is the Spirit of Fire, of course.
