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. :D Also, the expression is perfect! :love:

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! :D *hugs*

I love DA's 'More from this artist' button. Sometimes I abuse it. :giggle:

thanks so much! The Silmarillion is an AMAZING book, especially if you like Elves... It's actually my favourite. :)

A good friend of mine told me it has a lot to do with elves and the creation of the world and such. I believe he said it was his favourite too. And of course I like elves :) is it possible not to?

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!

The Eldar in later writings are described as tall and strong but still graceful(all that in comparison to men), so imagine a lonely Sindar smith that is rather crazy of so much work.

Thanks for all the comments! Much appreciated! :D I love drawing elves and I'd definitely have to thank Tolkien for most of the inspiration...(oh and Peter Jackson too) :D
