Eol the Dark Elf forges the fated sword Anglachel. From the Silmarillion by Tolkien
Wow, awesome work on the anatomy and the shading, and I love how you've positioned his arms to indicate that he is hard at work. Also, the expression is perfect!
Ooh thank you! I did this for a Directed Study class- one on one with a teacher- and it was one of my first fantasy works I timidly brought into the scary light of college. And my first actual pen drawing- not sketch. hehe, ball point ben! xP
And thanks so much for re-cruising my gallery! I feel all warm and fuzzy when folks do that! You're so nice! *hugs*
I've yet to read the Silmarillion. I have to finish the trilogy first
thanks so much! The Silmarillion is an AMAZING book, especially if you like Elves... It's actually my favourite.
This is brilliant!
you have a very amazing, distinct style. i like it
Its nice to see a muscular elf for a change. In so many pics they're shown as reather skinny!
I agree! I don't know how a smith that lives alone in the woods would be able to be skinny. Elf or not. Thanks for the fav and the comment!
Ugh perfect. I love elves!!
Thanks for all the comments! Much appreciated! I love drawing elves and I'd definitely have to thank Tolkien for most of the inspiration...(oh and Peter Jackson too)
