He's gorgeous and that detail is marvelous, so much 'ous' about this character. I can't handle it. And I love the short orange bob, it's the best.

I really, really, really DO love Enw, my favorite character!
And I love you, and I start loving him more and more with each of your new painting of him. )))
I'v never seen better images of Enw than yours.
Just THANK YOU! ))

Yeah! Handshake   He's cool and he's really great!
I think Enw's the most unappreciated character.

His "might in arms is surpassed by none in Arda", but he's also so kind, humble, dependable, trustworthy, he's a true protector.
Yeah, it's love, I know. :D (Big Grin)

And he's so rarely drawn
. :( (Sad)

God this is amazing! There are pieces where I just think "very well done!" or even "beautiful!" and then look for the next one - but I keep staring at this picture for minutes on end. I think what gets me is that on top of the excellent execution several details that suggest an entirely fitting characterization: The expression and hair in combination with those tasseled insignia just says "I'm modest about myself - but I'm here to represent Manw" (this splendor-through-modestly-fitting-into-your-place-in-the-order-of-things is so Tolkien!); the feathers on his shoulder plates connect him to Manw and make him seem angelic (and since they're not ruffled he's never even come close to being hit...). I'm gushing - but I won't apologize. This is gushworthy!

I always imagined him differently, but this works perfectly fine too! Especially his facial structure and the eyes!

Beautiful job. I like the armor and the jewels. When you paint armor and textures, you make them look very real.

I'm partial to the glow behind the pupils, it implies the power of Manw that he represents

Really beautiful and intricate work on the armour, it's a really great design! He looks pretty scary, I would *not* want to meet that guy in battle.

I like the feathers on the shoulder-pieces. It reminds me of the Polish hussars, but less overdone. Very, very beautiful. You captured that "inhuman but not infallible" look very well.

He looks so regal! I just love his outfit designs, especially how you did the detailing on his armor and shoulder plates. I'm so envious of your skin coloring, it looks so life-like and smooth hehe. Very nice work and cool character. :)

Probably my favorite piece from you so far!
The details in the armour, the hair, the stout yet androgyn look. Excellent!
I would have loved to see your art accompany Silmarillion.

The lighting and details are great though I think the right eye should be a bit shorter than the left eye i.e. perspective.

His armor looks so beautiful. The little details and trimmings really adds to it. The feather ruffles look so cool. I also really like his face. The features and colors look so definite.

Someone put "I'm a pretty badass lady" on a T-shirt and give it to Eonwe.
