Beautiful, very much how I imagined him at the moment he comes to Frodo and his companions. I love how he and the horse are glowing in the twilight.

Weird! Exactly like I always pictured him to be! All of your work is pretty much perfect. It really transports me to Middle Earth, I've been away too long.

Lovely, as always!

I especially love artists who, whether or not they like the LotR movies, still remember that Tolkien's elves are a higher and ageless folk, not just cute young human actors and/or older human actors with good make-up. ;)

I certainly don't dislike the recent movies, except for the bad CGI and the ickier bits of low humor, but I prefer Tolkien's ageless and (from a human point of view) remote elves and their long high sorrows over even the cutest teen-Legolas's hopeless crush and ridiculous archery maneuvers.

Glorfindel is also one of my favourite elves! So glad you painted him - that is just as he must have looked to Frodo when he first appeared in LOTR!! He seems to be shining with light.

Love  one of my very favourite Tolkien elves.  I love the fact that Asfaloth has no bridle or saddle which is in accordance with Tolkien's description of elves and their horses.

very beautiful movements, and I love how the white horse is glowing and flowing like a divine apparition - reminds me of Nahar!

Thank you very much!  How I remember, Asfaloth also was a sort of maya maybe, like Nahar, Huan or Thorondor, not just an animal *____*
