Lord of the Rings : Glorfindel by JenZee Lord of the Rings : Glorfindel by JenZee
More or less finished version of my take on Glorfindel :). I had a lot of fun doing his outfit... Esp. the armour and his sleeves. He's not actually " finished-finished," as I'm pondering whether I should put a bow/sword in his outstretched hand... I couldn't make up my mind before, though I was definitely planning on putting *something* there, College has begun again though, so I know I won't have time until maybe er...the summer XD. Anyway, Glorfindel of Gondolin.. my fav. LotR character who got cut from the movies ;_;. Yes he is riding Asfaloth who you can't see, and I slacked on ;_;. Hope you like~. I'll add detail shots later!

So nice to see an awesome portrayal of Glorfindel!!! You've captured him so much as I imagined him: proud and strong, with eyes that shine of wisdom. It's so him, I love you Tight Hug  I also love to see an original and well done armor. Not saying that the movie one was bad, just that it's inconceivable that a people as imaginative, crafty and diversity as the noldor would all wear the same armor design throughout the centuries. The breast-pate looks cool, but I can't really make out what the heraldry on it is, because it looks quite far from a golden flower to me.

this is all things gloriously gorgeous and EPIC! Particularly because Glorfindel has always been a favorite Tolkien character of mine- I really feel like you snatched him right out of my imagination! :D which is TOTALLY COOL!!!
You're awesome.

Wow! This is an amaizing depiction of Glorfindel, I was quite upset that he wasn't in the movie. But here he is now and just as elvishley (I don't think thats a word but who cares!) beautiful as ever!!!
