Glorfindel in color by kln1671 Glorfindel in color by kln1671
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.

"Many Meetings", Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

Oh, wow, this is exactly how I picture him! I am definitely saving this. A lot of people draw him too effeminate, you don't, he's still a beautiful elf but you can definitely tell that he is a strong male rather than a wussy girlie type nelf.

Beautiful. His eyes are just gorgeous. And you did a great job on the hands and the hair, both of which usually try my patience when I'm drawing ...

Thank you! :hug: Hair often tries my patience, as well, but hands usually cooperate.

I blame my inability to draw hands properly on my own wierd looking hands. I've got unnaturally skinny fingers and so whenever I use them as a reference the hands I draw turn out looking really wierd. That probably explains why I have a big cartoony hand fetish XD

Yep, yep, yep! You draw beautiful creatures! Your colouring is nice.
I think I'd like to see a little bit darker shadow under the hair in the ear and under the jaw.
And if I may say so myself; he's *cough*H.O.T*cough*
