So under appreciated thanks to the movie. >.< Their appearance and such was my favorite part of the book. It was so magical when I was a kid first reading it and you definitely have that here!

Did you know he`s probably the one who said the witchking of Angmar wouldn`t die by the hands of man? (It`s either him or someone with similar name. But I doubt Tolkien would put same name for three of his elven characters, so...)

Stunning! I love that you can see the stiching in the clothes, it makes the characters seem more real, not as untouchable and far away.

This is a fantastic tribute to a largely underrated character. Excellent framing with the branches, and all around well done composition. : )

You do staggeringly beautiful work. I first saw one of your paintings somewhere on Tumblr, and was pleased to find your gallery here. I am awestruck. Faved many items, for which I apologize because of the spam, but commenting here because I love your portrayal of poor, underrated, forgotten Glorfindel!

This has to been one of the loveliest renditions of Glorfindel. Oh and with Asfaloth as bonus. Asfaloth is GORGEOUS. I love his neck and mane and how the pair blend together like old partners tend to do.

While Glorfindel is very beautiful, I think it's Asfaloth who steals this picture! His face looks extremely realistic and beautiful and I love how the jewels(?) on his headpiece almost match those on Glorfindel's tunic.

The painting is beautiful, but why is the stitching on the tunic so rough? It is obviously of fine fabric and even has jewels, and everything is spoiled by bad sewing :(

I really like the way you combined tree branches and leaves to make a simple background - it's pretty and yet lets Glorfindel be the focus. Also, the horse has a lovely head ^-^

This is lovely. I'm glad you took some creative license and removed Asfaloth's tinkling bells on his reins. Lol. :XD:

Wow, beautiful! It's quite understated and I think that makes the image more powerful. You've got the elfin etherealness spot on and Asfaloth looks like a noble beast.
