I love it :D The way you have done the chainmail looks really good, and I really like the overall composition and colour scheme :clap: The way you put the arms in the foreground is also great as it makes it look like there is more depth :D I hate giving criticisms, but as you asked for critique I would say that maybe you could improve the piece by spending a bit more time on the flags, as they look a litlle bit too uneven in the shading, especially the Gondor one, but hey, what do I know? And I really like this piece overall, so it doesn't really matter :) Thankyou for uploading, made me smile to find this :love:

Thank you for the criticism. In fact, in the course of years my idea of the flag design has changed a lot, and I don't like that much the way I did these ones, not only for the uneven colouring. Unfortunately, being on a sheet of paper, I can't correct it the way I'd want without ruining it, so I'm drawing another version of it.
