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.
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!
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!
