I guess J.R.R.Tolkien could really tell you more ;)

Arakano is the elf's name.

I love the scene and the emotion here, and what really gets me is - that lamp! Wonderful design to be hung from a spear.

I love Argon's expression, it feels like both him and his horse know he won't make it to Middle-earth :(

That's really nice! I have to admit that I had to google him because somehow I never heard of him - of Fingolfin's children there were Fingon, Turgon and Aredhel for me :blush:
And then here he steps out of the dark and looks totally nice to me! Thank you for making such a beautiful introduction for me, even if you probably did not intend that :D

Wow! :deviation: I love it. The Silmarillion is one of my favourite stories. You've captured the sadness of leaving the Undying Lands really well!:iconbwavoplz:

May I point out, however, that the spear on the right looks like it is piercing the horse! :hmm:

The composition isn't good in general... :)

Oh, I don't know about that! Apart from the fact that that tiny detail makes it looks like the Elves are about to have a horsey kebab, I quite like the composition! ;)

Aww, Arakano. I like the subtle sky very much, and the purple of his cloak stands out very nicely. ♥

Arakano! :D I just failed finishing an old portrait of him (on time to post him here [link] I could still try it seeing yours). Good to see someone else remembers about this man :) Pitty the official Silmarillion didn't :(

I like him very much cause though he is described in just a few words, these words are very characterizing...

Your style isn't perfect but I like it very much. (Maybe that is why I like him so much :) )
I hope you're not bad for those words. I wrote it with sympathy :* I love yours drawings, especially those drawn in pencil. And especially elves. They're so delicate and subtle but strong and serious. So in my view should look like elves. Great drawings!

My stile can't be perfect, cause i've never learned how to draw and i am too lazy to draw as much as you need to achieve some real results :)
