Talks with Tolkien artists: 7hot-feanorians

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 25, 2017, 4:33 AM

Today your daily dose of Tolkien humour is provided by :icon7hot-feanorians: - 7hot-feanorians and her slightly overweight dragons:

The Cook by 7hot-feanorians Just Idling by 7hot-feanorians
Tormenting the Tormentor (redo) by 7hot-feanorians Show Off... by 7hot-feanorians
Family Jewels by 7hot-feanorians Say Hello! by 7hot-feanorians

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?

Well I don't think I've ever told anyone on DA but my real name is actually Brittanie, everyone just calls me "Scout" though! I love drawing silly things, reading, wearing costumes and everything to do with horses. I'm also a firm believer that a cup of hot coco can brighten any day! One item on my bucket list is to tie together a bunch of sheets and "sneak" out of the window at night.

2. What brought you to deviatArt and how did you pick your (rather suggestive) username?

HAHA! Well...the name is the result of my 14 year old self wanting some dark, broody boyfriend. There weren't any real elves around my Jr. High so the sons of Feanor fit the bill! I found DA while looking for fan art of said imaginary dark, broody elves. :D (Big Grin)

3. How did you enter Tolkien's world for the first time, and what impression did it leave in you?

Ah...sadly my first venture into the world of Tolkien was a turbulent one. My 4th grade teacher read us the Hobbit...but my poor 9 year old brain couldn't get past why it was called "Middle Earth". "What was it in the middle of?" Was there an "Upper Earth" and a "Lower Earth"? Or a "Left Earth and a Right earth"? I missed the whole story because I was contemplating where "Upper Earth" and "Lower Earth" were in relation to Middle Earth. Luckily the movies came out a number of years later and helped me realize what an excellent world it was, and that I needed to read the books.

4. How much did the movies influence your imagination when reading the books?

I did see the movies first (I hadn't had anything to do with Tolkien after the "Upper Earth and Lower Earth" incident). They do differ from the books, but I still think that they are some of the best movies that have ever been made and they will stand the test of time. I was so impressed that I went to the library in search of Tolkien that very night. Luckily though I was blessed with a very powerful imagination, and I found that the only character that I envisioned the same as the movie was Lady Galadriel. They got her spot on I think.

5. Some of Tolkien's books can be hard to read, being more of history annals than beletry. Do you let that discourage you or not? How extensive is your knowledge of Middle-earth?

You know what's funny? I read the Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings...but it was the Silmarillion that fired up my imagination the most! I can honestly say I've probably read the Sil twice as many times as LoTR. I don't let is discourage me at all! I wouldn't say I'm an expert though. I tend to forget things, or mix events up. There's a lot to remember! Haha!

6. Who is your favourite Tolkien character and why?

Y'all may be surprised to find out that my favorite character isn't actually Maedhros, but his younger brother Maglor. While I do love to draw Maedhros the most (I'v got a thing for red pretty!) it's Maglor's character I admire the most. I imagine that if his brothers hadn't been so adamant about the whole oath thing, he would've put away his sword, forgone the oath and lived his life in peace with his music. It also took an immense amount of bravery for him to confront his brother about Elrond and Elros. Middle Earth would've turned out A LOT different if it wasn't for Maglor's bravery in that moment. It was his one 'saving grace' as it were.

7. Now, could you tell us something about you and art? Are you a professional artist, or is art just your hobby? When did you start doing it, and who or what influenced your style?

Art is just a hobby I've been pursuing since I was little. As for style it has been influenced by so many wonderful artists I never bothered keeping track. The latest I've been watching is :iconpatrickbrown: . I LOVE they way he does his linework, so I will be trying to introduce an element of his linework style into my own. Here's hoping!

8. Serious pictures are a minority in your gallery. Is humor an integral part of your life and view of the fandom?

Haha! Absolutely! They say laughter is the best medicine and I'm a believer! Humor and laughter have saved me from some very dark moments in my life. I don't know what kinds of things my watchers may be going through, and chances are I can't fix anything if I did. But I can make them laugh and forget their stress for a moment. Sometimes those little moments make all the difference! So let the jokes rage one! (for a question about humor that was kind of a serious answer wasn't it? hehe!)

9. How do you choose which scenes and characters to illustrate (or should I say "make fun of")?

Usually it happens completely at random! For example:
Problem Solved by 7hot-feanorians
This one happened after I read that part late at night when I was also "weary". My first thought was "a 5 hour energy drink could do wonders! would a 5 hour energy effect an elf? Hmm..." Thus this comic was born!

10. Glaurung is something like a signature character of your Tolkien humor. How did this happen?

Well, once again completely randomly. I was wondering what they fed a creature of that size, and we were having Mexican food for dinner that night. There was suddenly this image in my head of a big, fat dragon wearing a chef's hat and apron, wrapping up elves in tortillas and making "elf burritos". I just ran with it and it turned out to be awesome!

11. What other book or movies (or anything else) inspire you to create fanart, and why?

Oh...Star Wars definitely! Art happens when I can imagine myself being there. Both Tolkien and Star Wars get the imagination well as the daydreaming!

12. What art technique is your favourite? Do you rather keep to the art techniques and styles you are familiar with, or do you experiment with new ones as well?

Haha! Well I can't say I have a favorite...I use a conglomeration of techniques that I've found work for my personal style. Experimentation is key! How can one expect to learn new things if one doesn't try new things? Here on DA you don't get to see the experimentation process much...but it does happen frequently!

13. Do you have some tips and tricks you would like to share with the other artists?

Honestly my biggest advice for other artists is to "Stop comparing! Keep Drawing!" Seriously! If you feel like your work isn't as good as others...stop staring at their work, and keep working on your own. You'll get there I promise! You don't criticize a baby when it's learning how to talk do you? encourage it! Do the same with your art! Say to yourself "I'm still learning! I'll just keep practicing!"

14. Could you give us a link or thumbnail from your gallery of

- a Tolkien illustration you are most proud of?

Both of these always give me a sense of..."Holy cow did I really draw that?!"
To The Last by 7hot-feanorians or Hail Son of Hurin by 7hot-feanorians
- a picture from other fandom or original picture you are most proud of?

Oof...tough one... probably this one. It was very challenging and turned out great!
On The Hunt by 7hot-feanorians

- a picture that fits your current mood?

Master of Disguise by 7hot-feanorians

- a picture that was hardest to paint?

This one hands down!
Nebula Sisters by 7hot-feanorians

- any other picture you would like to share with us and why?

HAHA! This one...because it's still funny! :D (Big Grin)
Horrible Realization by 7hot-feanorians

15. What key people in your life, (on or off of dA) have been inspirations to you, or has supported you, as an artist? You can also tell us why, if you want.

Shout out to my 8th grade art teacher Mr. Adams! He was a wonderful, fun, kind and encouraging teacher. He didn't just tell us what to draw...he taught us how to "art". He showed us how to look at art, and the world around us is in a different way...and then showed us different ways to pull it off! He was amazing and I'll never forget it!

16. Is there some artist(s) at dA you know, who doesn't have as much attention as they would deserve? If yes, could you give us some thumbnails from their gallery?

:iconancalinar: 's gallery is awesome! I don't know if they post up anything anymore, but it's still an enjoyable gallery to go through! I just adore the way they draw faces and people. Plus the art has a sense of movement that makes it fun to look at.

Also :iconliigaklavina: 's gallery! Pretty much everything she does is a gorgeous piece of art! She does have some excellent Tolkien stuff as well.

17. Is there something else you would like to tell to the fans of Tolkien and your art?

Yes. If anyone ever asks you... the average wind speed velocity of an unladen swallow (European) is approximately 24 miles per hour (or 11 meters per second). You are now officially prepared for any quest!

Thank you very much for your time and answers!

:icontolkienplz: My stories from Middle-earthI usually do not post my fanfiction stories here at dA (and won't until they enable to post multi-chaptered stories as one deviation, otherwise it would make a mess in my gallery...) I post them under my and Stories of Arda account:
Now I got the idea to post at least the links to them here, together with the banners and illustrations. My stories feature mostly Aragorn, and several also Eärendil, but there are a few with other characters as well. I will update this journal when I post a new story.

Plant trees and get free art requests from great artists! There's never enough of trees!
:icontreehuggerplz: Art for Trees - project:iconspringtree-1plz::iconspringtree-2plz::iconspringtree-3plz::iconspringtree-4plz::iconspringtree-4pl5:
"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

I'll try to fix it somehow, but until then, the "Try it without login" link still works. If you submit the solution to a cipher, it will give you a link to the next one. It just won't remember your position in the game, so better save that link, or remember the solution so you can get it again.

Here is their route:

I decided to keep a travel diary for them, so you all know where they are in the moment :) Those who already had them, PLEASE upload your photos, so I can add them here! It can be in your scraps if you don't want to spam your main gallery, but we would all like to see the awesome locations where the Noldor have been, right, family? Remember that you can still take photos of your figure when you go somewhere interesting, even if you already sent the others further!
