Orome

And on a time it chanced that Oromë rode eastward in his hunting, and he turned north by the shores of Helcar and passed under the shadows of the Orocarni, the Mountains of the East. Then on a sudden Nahar set up a great neighing, and stood still. And Oromë wondered and sat silent, and it seemed to him that in the quiet of the land under the stars he heard afar off many voices singing.
Thus it was that the Valar found at last, as it were by chance, those whom they had so long awaited. And Oromë looking upon the Elves was filled with wonder, as though they were beings sudden and marvellous and unforeseen; for so it shall ever be with the Valar.

Ha, now that is a very tangible Orome. But I think it fits. And definitely not a dark rider to be afraid of. Though I had imagined him to be of about the same size as the elves of Cuiviennen (hadn't they chosen this form actively?). But then, they might all be like children to the Valar in a certain sense...

Beautiful! Orome looks awesome! For some reason i always imagined the elves in this place being naked. Like in eden or something.

I thought the same thing when drawing elves and Osse.

I always imagine him without beard, with very young look and golden hair but I am so in love with your vision :love: Gosh, he looks grand here! And I love the way he looks like one of his believers, like Rohirrim :heart: Nahar is fantastic also, I truly admire his shine and grace, what a colour! Like pure white with a bit of silver and pearl :) 
The nightly sky is full of good mood, the same with Orome's kind and friendly expression, he reminds me (a bit) of Theoden, or rather hobbits' impression about very polite, kind and good "older man" :) There is no fear so the Elves shouldn't be afraid ;) By the way I like how you showed their fascination :)
Also, I adore brightness here, magical scene with its mood, details - escpecially clothes, these materials are gorgeous with such colours and textures! :heart: and some kind of gentleness.
Wonderful work :hug:

Oh wow this is wonderful. I like that Orome is portrayed much bigger then they are but more human-like.
