Astonished!

This is exactly how the armor of the Eldar should look in the 1st age. Ancient yet advanced, beautiful.

Poor Aegnor, even his horse's eyes express grief. Fallen heroes of old.

When I saw this art I just thought "Fingolfin and Rochallor!" Aegnor is a low profile character. Nice work! Really beautiful!

Thank you very much for appreciating my work!
But you are very unjust for Aegnor saying that he is a low profile character. Tolkien said of him and Angrod very brief, but thay conducted a siege of Angband standing nearest for Morgot's den, and stood in the breach during the Buttle of Sudden Flame. Also the first love story between Eldar and Edain was with participation of Aegnor)
and Fingolfin had a dark hair)

He looks beautiful and strong, and I love the feel of the wind, the colours and dark shadows Heart . It makes me feel the Dagor Bragollach and his doom is coming.

The colors in this are absolutely stunning. And the expressions you gave both of them are so great. He looks resolved to go on, but the horse looks back at the viewer with curiosity.

Do you make tutorials? What kind of medium do you use? I would LOVE to make illustrations like this. :)

Aegnor as the hero.

No matter how wise of foolish his choices were, he did stand up and fight for what he loved.....

:iconekukanova:
EKukanova Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2015
He was guided by his sense of duty and puted it before own interests, at any rate it is worthy of respect. 

I found very interesting fanfic, there depicted his conversation with Finrod, and Finrod says that he could not term his choice right or wrong,  it was very interesting conversation because Finrod was in analogous situation).

yeah, there were lots of "ambiguous situations" in Tolkien's work.  I think he realized that choices in real life are rarely black and white, so he made his characters struggle with those same kinds of situations.

Такой шикарный рисунок. 
Ночь Дагор Браголлах - ветер развевает знамена и искры уже летят. Аэгнор мужественно смотрит вперед, не смотря на то, что прекрасно понимает, что его ждет. И поза у него такая - одновременно непринужденная и собранная (или я это уже сама себе воображаю))
И все, конечно, потрясающе прорисовано. Особенно впечатлил конь - красавец! И грива и доспехи, и особенно взгляд - ну просто живой! Не перестаю дивиться твоему мастерству!

Хотелось, чтобы присутствовало некое невербальное общение с конём, мол "ну что друг, это наш с тобой последний выезд, извини что так вышло", и друг всё прекрасно понимает).
