Family trees - Finarfin by Kimni Family trees - Finarfin by Kimni
Finarfin's family tree. This is actually my favourite one. It's not as empty or full as the other ones, and I like Finarfin's emblem.
Oh, and it's an excuse for drawing weird branches... a friend suggested to use them to connect the names, and I really like how it turned out.

That's a really nice family tree. And well done on the calligraphy! :D Did you based the lettering on something specific or is it your own invention?

Btw. Yay! I'm there ;-) Only... Celebrķan is spelled with an acute accent above i :-)

Perhaps you could do hobbit family trees - there are much bigger though :D

Thanks!
The lettering is based on a blackletter script in a calligraphy book I got from my parents a few years ago. I made some changes, but mostly it's just copied.
About the accents... there are a lot of names that should have accents on one letter or the other. Including Finwe, Earwen, Eldalote, and so on, I think - I was happy enough that I could figure out who was related to who, so I didn't really bother with that.

I'd like to do more family trees (or calligraphy in general), but I haven't had much time for anything since I started at university. And the hobbit family trees are seriously huge...

:P shame on you for blaming me for the branches *g* they are nice. I thought they would be thinner, but it might be better this way. You turned my weird scribble into something pretty good looking :D
