Wow! :D That picture is amazing. I'm no expert in judging art, but I think you've really captured the character of Elessar in those 2 amazing faces.
I really do love it!

Very nice. At this point, the "Strider" portrait looks better, but when you get the "Elessar" one finished, it will probably look great.

Fantastic...




(Stupid question, but did Viggo actually sign that painting? And was it you who dropped by the Oxford moot this weekend? Someone told me a "Charlie" was there but they weren't sure who it was, and the name at the bottom looks like it says Charlie. Sorry if I sound like a knob or anything. :P The Mighty Squid and I were trying to figure this out earlier. haha)

Thanks again everyone - much appreciated!

Evenstar- Yes, Viggo did actually sign the piece (back when it was only a drawing) As far as the moot, it was not me I'm afraid! Sorry!
