Am I seeing a slight resemblance between Gondorian helmets and this one? :D

I JUST read the Fall of Gondolin, and Rog is possibly my new favs. Love that you pictured him. You do such amazing Tolkien work! Thank you so much for sharing with us!

I'm so sorry I have not commented on anything in a long time. First the computer is taken in for months, then summer brake and my favorite mother in the hospital with two brain aneurisms  Waaaah!, so fun. It is nice to see Rog here except for Glorinfidel and Ecthelion there is not much out there for the lords of Gondolin and I do like this drawing of him. I will say he looks awfully serious and he's very handsome. Your work is still wonderful with much love Heart  AlexisofRadiasHere's a kiss for you, my love!

Lovely, lovely picture of an Elf-lord not that commonly paid attention to :)

I must say, I can't help but think that "Rog" (Demon) could not POSSIBLY have been his birth name, lol. He got that in a fistfight or something.

Good to see someone wants to capture this badass character that was fleeting but so important to Gondolin and ultimately spared the world much of the evil of balrogs. Seriously if he and his men were among the first to actually kill balrogs, they deserve your fabulous art.

мм.. знать бы еще толком, что это за дядька из Гондолина..  какие у него плечи вкусные...
а молоточек прям очень по эльфийски-изящен... охота его чуть- чуть повнушительней, молот это ведь тип ударного оружия, мне кажется в нем чисто визуально веса должно быть больше... ну это так мои профанские рассуждения, я не знаток...
хотя он такой весь сам тонок в кости, так что и молот под стать...

Да, маловато как-то о нём информации...   в Падении Гондолина вроде что-то про него есть о_О   а так да, персонаж интересный, имя от raug -гнев о_О   и орудует молотом, Мелькор такой немного *____*   А молот вещь на вид изящная достаточно, ну да, я пропорции чуть изменила, но легче его не делала)   В позднее средневековье со всеми вот этими супертяжёлыми позднеготическими доспехами от мечей вроде вообще почти отказались, перешли на что-то такое...  Заказали мне его, постаралась передать свои ощущения от всей вот этой не богатой о нём информации, и вроде попала, сама во всяком случае тоже довольна результатом%)

He looks just as badass as I would picture him, Balrog slayer and blacksmith! Plus, he's gorgeous!

Rog!  Good to see obscure Rog getting some love. :)  He's lovely, and that hammer is gorgeous.

Outstanding job on the armour design Elena. You are becoming a true autorithy now.
As for the idea and rendering, it is as great as always.
Keep up the fantastic work!
