I cannot read the book anymore and get to Finrod and not think of this picture. Literally. I spend the whole book happily going "GLORFINDEL GLORFINDEL GLORFINDEL!" And then his death slaps me in the face. And then I go "AWWW. Well then, ECTHELION!" And then he dies and leaves me crying. And then I go "Finrod Finrod Finrod!" And then HE dies. Man, I need a life where people I love don't die.

Wow, he is beautiful!

Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength.

The picture represents that description by Tolkien exquisitely

This is my fav character from the Silmarillion, thank you for doing him the justice he deserves! :typerhappy: (He looks camp in every picture I've seen so far... :disbelief: )

Love Finrod's face and hair and the outfit. The front (the nostrils) of the horse behind him look weird, though.

He's beautiful! I say that a lot about elves - but then, of course, they are beautiful.

Finrod happens to be my favorite among J.R.R. Tolkien's character. Your work happens to be one of the best drawings I've seen of him. ^_^

Great Finrod, exactly how I imagined him. I like the sort of half-smile on his face.

What catches my attention are his hands - you do hands extremely well, but in this one, they're perfect. So much character in there!

it could be a western bridle. it's not really a big deal. they're often more elegant than English Bridles.
