Gil-Galad was an Elven King..

Gil-Galad signed by Mark Ferguson

Signed Gil-Galad

 

To Soni,
You are a great talent!
Thank you, Mark Ferguson
(Gil Galad)

That’s what the gentleman himself wrote on the first image, which is a print of a rather hasty sketch! *Insert vast amount of squee here*

A magnificent friend (to whom I now probably owe a kidney) printed it out and took it with her to the Calgary Expo where the HIGH KING OF THE ELVES signed it. ^_^

The image below that, however, is the finished version – with extra shiny and special.

  2. This is just amazing, absolutely beautiful. There isn’t a lot of Gil-galad artwork so I was really happy to find this. I think Gil-galad deserves to be drawn more often and this definitely does him justice.

    • What a very lovely thing to say, thank you so much. :)
      Ideally, and with more practise, I’d like to create a happy hybrid of movie-version and book version, with the glorious costuming and dramatic power of one, plus the swirly whirly prettiness that Elves all just have in my head from the book, heh.
