Everything about this picture is amazing, but I especially can't take my eyes off of the armor...Thingol's, Mablung's, the horse's, AND the armor in the background. It's perfection!

Wow, El-ewe's armor looks magnificent. It is like a mixture of shiny metal but also light like feathers at the same time. Also the light reflections giving it a warm shine are beautiful. )(opowo!

Шикаааарно!!!
В плане мастерства и техники, насколько я могу судить - все на высоте, как всегда.
Хотя. Есть одна маленькая зацепка - я бы рисунок слева (со стороны коня) "раздвинула" бы чуть-чуть, и добавила туда какую-нибудь панораму, например. Или, возможно, это фрагмент?   

Мне, почему-то, конь больше всех понравился. -)) На самом деле, редко вижу действительно хорошо нарисованных коней, в ваш такой красивый! И мотив лебединых крыльев в короне Тингола и шлеме Маблунга - очень эффектная деталь. 

И, просто к месту, замечу, что Маблунга всегда представляла себе с серебряными телеринскими волосами, а вот Белега - черноволосым. У Толкиена, кажется, есть то-ли рисунок, то-ли заметка, что Белег действительно черноволосый, а вот насчет Маблунга не знаю. Но вот так у меня сложилось, а у вас - наоборот. -))

I must admit your Tolkien elves are usually a little too dreamy/romantic from my rather gritty taste, but this spot on - particularly Mablung. Bravo.

ekukanova Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2013
Thank you so very much! I appreciate it!
But Elves are not usual. Not "us", I dunno, you're free to judge =)
As for a "little too romantic", guilty as charged =)
Still, there are THE Warren Ellis and classical oil-painted comic books, right? =) I go my own highway, if I might =)

...and you're totally entitled, don't get me wrong. Purely a matter of taste. Beautiful and dreamy has it's place. I gravitate toward the darker and grimmer aspects of Tolkien though. You blend it perfectly here - just as I feel Alan Lee does most days. Ellis - lol yah love that guy. cheers.

The banners and armour are breathtaking, and those delicate, soft colours. Also, I would love this for tha fact alone that Mablung is in the picture. Why he is usually neglected in art is beyond me. I wish he had more screentime in the story.

Anyway, let me sum up what I wnat to say: this is a truly gorgeous painting and you are doubtlessly one of my personal favourite Tolkien artists!

Oh! I'm also think, thats Mablung is very interesting character for portraiture)))

 And the words, that I'm someones favorite Tolkien illustrator -these I value the most! :aww: Thank you so very much!
