Being a Noldor he would probably be tall, strong and carry a long sword...

I like how you did the collar, and the shoulders.

I love this. Very convincing and fits what I have imagined they might have looked like.

Fantastic! My mind goes to Middle-Earth and I almost can see him fighting. It just look so good that I wish to see more of it. Congratz!

As so many have already mentioned, the armor looks amazing. I especially like the delicate design on the helmet (is that a wing pattern?). The lighting is also excellent -- stark and elegant. Love the Noldor as you have depicted them.

Thank you very much! Yes, that´s a wing pattern, but not very visible by the light xD

I definitely agree with WF74 on the hoplite quality of that armour - must be the helmet, to a large degree. But I love how elegant and organic it seems. Wonderful work there!

Very stylized, great design. It has a Hoplite and Roman quality to it, but with more and better armor. It's almost sci-fi the lines a so 'modern'. Unique view, love it. Not necessarily my view, but very creative!

Thank you so much! I always try to give a personal view to my drawings. And you has defined exactly what I tried with this one (a kind of more sophisticated ancient greek soldier). :)

I love how slim this armour is. It avoids the bulkiness and superfluousness of stylized medieval armour, but still looks durable and yet lightweight. Very practical. :) Nice work!

now doesnt that look amazing O.o

I always thought noldo soldiers would have something like decorations all over, somehow to show the pride of their people. but this surely makes me change my mind!
the simplicity of the helmet is exquisite, my friend.

job well done :)

Muchas gracias por tus palabras.
La verdad es que cuando uno piensa en el aspecto de los elfos siempre se tiende a imaginar una profusión decorativa, pero creo que un pueblo como los Noldor que ha vuelto exclusivamente para la guerra puede tener un aspecto algo más sobrio, que les de un look más temible. De todas formas, a pesar del carácter funcional de la armadura, le he colocado algunas joyas, que creo son ineludibles en la imagen de los Noldor y que, además de expresar su orgullo, les recordarán al enemigo lo que han venido a buscar ;)

Sin duda alguna, tu interpretación es más que valida. me encantan los tonos azules, el color que utilizaste queda totalmente perfecto; y la niebla tambien me encanta, le trae un efecto de soledad muy interesante. No quiero imaginarme lo que podrías a llegar a ilustrar a partir de un dragón como crisofilax o un fortachón como beorn!

mmmm... tengo ahí en la retaguardia la idea de dibujar un dragón en algún momento, pues es raro que todavía no haya hecho ninguna ilustración de Glaurung por ejemplo. ;)
