July 2017: When I submitted this for the Teitho July 2016 'Brothers' Challenge, I said this was Angrod & baby Aegnor in Aman. 
A badly needed dose of fluffiness for me after working on the Dagor Bragollach in 'Fallen Fire'. Dead (RIP) 

Looking at it a year later, I've changed my mind. The little boy turned out looking so sweet and gentle, that I don't think it could be Angrod the "Iron Champion", aka the "Iron-handed". So I've decided it has to be Orodreth, and the baby is Angrod. 

This is actually part of a larger WIP with Finrod, Finarfin & Earwen somewhere in the distance to the right, but it was taking me such ages to finish that I cropped off this corner and worked on it first... hope to finish the big pic when time permits!

Pose refs: brothers & puppy

Oh, that's cuteness personified! Angrod is cute, baby Aegnor is cute, the little dog is cute (and I don't even really like dogs!). This is what my life needs - some happy, peaceful elves... :-)

Finrod - born Y.T. 1300
Angrod - born Y.T 1300-1362
Aegnor - born Y.T 1300-1362
Galadriel - born Y.T. 1362

So in elven growth rate that means that Finrod was already physically mature yet mentally in his youth when Galadriel was born. Between Angrod and Aegnor, what you show here is certainly is a possibility. :nod: And very adorable. :D

Oh thanks so much for finding the chronology! And since this was in Valian Years and 1 Valian Year = 9.582 of our solar years, Finrod would have been 594 of our years when Galadriel was born :o (Eek) ... which makes the twenty-year gap I imagine between Angrod and Aegnor a little less likely, but heehee, for the sake of fluffiness I'll stick with this image of them both!
And I'm glad you thought they were adorable! :) (Smile)
