Bravo! I love your Gurthang design. It is so hard to paint a black but reflective object and you made it so superbly. Also, the sword look slender but solid, and very very sharp. Those qualities are very hard to show in a painting, and you do it as a master! My sincere admiration!

How much would you charge for an image like this? How long would it take to complete?

This one should take a month(ish). For an original size, it would be 1.2K E. Add postage and insurance =)

The reflective qualities of the blade, especially taking the red colors from the roof, making it appear covered in blood (as has been mentioned before) are quite striking. This whole scene is very, very well done. I only have one question: what made you decide to portray Elu Thingol as being brown haired instead of Silver-haired? I only ask because it seemed to be one of his most striking features, meriting becoming part of his name, Thingol meaning "Grey cloak," and referring to his hair (as well as apparently being the tallest child of Iluvatar ever born, which is saying something, considering that Elendil was approximately 8 feet tall).
