I liked the dress and the flute so much. His ear is so Elvish! Excellent work!

Went back and somehow noticed I never commented on this. I absolutely adore it. It IS Ecthelion to me, more than any other representation of him I've seen. All the little details on the clothing and whatnot are beautiful as well. Just perfect.

That's the way I feel about all of the drawings of various characters she's done! Whenever I read the Silmarillion, I can only see these portrayals, no others.

Haha I don't feel that way about all of her portrayals (though they're all fantastic), but just this one is just SO spot-on. :D

Ecthelion! I love him! xDD Although more for being super-brave and avenging Feanor than for personality. In fact, what is he like personality-wise? Although this pic shows a lot about that ^^It's so pretty, like everything else!

Haha, Tolkien never stated his actual personality, but judging from the fact that he's a flautist, a warrior, and a well-loved elf, I gather he's a pretty decent guy ;)

I do not know much about the Fountain of the King, but really, I'd think Ecthelion wouldn't appreciate it when he drowns in a fountain, lord of o it or no.

But this drawing is, for a lack of better words, perfection.

wow so beautiful!!! it's one of those things that almost strikes me as heartbreakingly sad, even though the picture itself isn't sad. Maybe it's just the knowledge of what happens to him that makes it feel that way.

You've probably noticed this by now - but your art really strikes a chord with me. I can't remember faving this many pieces from *anyone* yet. ;) I love the way you included the flute, and again, those wonderfully delicate and deft hands!
