GLORFINDEL of the Golden Flower and ECTHELION of the Fountain.

Work in progress line-art of an Art Nouveau, Silmarillion inspired illustration. Can’t wait to colour these guys! Ermm…but WHY do the lines look so blurry on my dashboard?! Weird. Never mind. Looks better on my page. Sorry!

BTW, Quenya inscriptions on Glorfindel’s sword and Ecthelion’s belt translate as follows: 

Ú-‘oston an gi adh nin~ ‘I will not fear for you are with me’.

Nanyë Turambar, nanyë i hesto fëanyo~ ’I am the master of my fate,the captain of my soul’.
