Curufin

Curufin son of Fëanor coloured sketch, Soni Alcorn-Hender

20×30 cms, pencils and acrylics.

“Curufin the crafty … who was of perilous mood.”

From JRR Tolkien’s ‎Silmarillion

Sketch of ‪Curufin‬, favourite son of ‎Fëanor‬ (who made the Silmarils and started lots of trouble), and father of Celebrimbor (who made the Elven rings and ended in lots of trouble).
Called ‘the Crafty’ – possibly because he was good with his hands, possibly because he was a devious git.
Also tried to shoot Luthien, twice.
Fëanor had many gifts, apparently parenting wasn’t one of them.

And the un-coloured sketch:

  1. I do wonder how “devious git” translates into Elvish or even Portuguese !

  2. Well ‘curu-‘ means skilled, cunning, or crafty, so he’s already have there.
