Death of the Dark Elf-Coloured by Nimphaiwe Death of the Dark Elf-Coloured by Nimphaiwe
Yay! I actually coloured it! :D :D I just finished this tonight. It's the most detailed landscape I've ever done on the computer! The rocks looked awful, so I just took the texture from his hair and put it on the rocks! And I made the wall look smoother too.

Overall I'm quite pleased with it. :D

The original drawing is here: [link] This one's a good deal smaller than the original. It would've taken me ages to colour the huge one.

What a unique and effective pose/state to show this scene! Very well done!
 Eol is my absolute favourite Middle Earth character. *high five*

i've already faved it some time ago, i only wanted to ask what is this white thing at the background? is it gondolin or some kind of.. e... icy rock?:) i really like the persepctive, eol looks so scared.. and it is the only picture of this moment on DA i have found (people usually consider eol as stupid bumpkin...arghh).
i have some sketches of what happened few second after (body of eol, lots of blood).. i must find some time to redraw it, but drawing such sad pictures always makes me sad too. :X

Yeah, the white thing is Gondolin. I'm not so great at drawing architecture. :dohtwo:
Ooh, I'd love to see the aftermath of the fall! But it is so sad... :(

Ooh nice ^^ Gondolin really *is* white! And I love his hair, and the rocks, and how on earth do you manage to get the skin the right colour?! xD
