'Bregalad stood for some time surveying the hobbits solemnly; and they looked at him, wondering when he would show any signs of 'hastiness'. He was tall, and seemed to be one of the younger Ents; he had smooth shining skin on his arms and legs; his lips were ruddy, and his hair was grey-green. He could bend and sway like a slender tree in the wind. At last he spoke, and his voice though resonant was higher and clearer than Treebeard's.
'Ha, hmm, my friends, let us go for a walk!' he said. 'I am Bregalad, that is Quickbeam in your language. But it is only a nickname, of course. They have called me that ever since I said yes to an elder Ent before he had finished his question. Also I drink quickly, and go out while some are still wetting their beards. Come with me!'

Quickbeam's a great, and too often forgotten, character :)

I like this a lot, especially the way you've used the space in the unusually shaped canvas.

Cheers - yeah I've used this canvas for a few portraits like Nerdanel the Wise, but it can also work well for landscapes too, such as TaniquetilThe Rescue of Maedhros or Radagast the Brown. I quite like it for some reason :)
