Hey, is it ok if I use your picture as a reference for a Wattpad story?

Sure, please feel free. Glorfindel is not my character. So you may use his description as you like. :D

This is without a doubt one of the best representations of my favorite elf lord. Everyone focuses so much on his death and the fall of Gondolin and never just focus on him as an individual. The colors are splendid and the designs all very much how I imagine him. Very nicely done!

Thank you for giving me credit, but I am sorry I cannot give you permission to use the characters description as an original character of yours, because Glorfindel and his description/looks are copyrighted to Tolkien. You will have to ask them for the permission. XD Sorry. It's not my permission to give. :)

The second is the reincarnation of the second? wut?

And yes, Glorfindel of Gondolin was granted rebirth by Eru Iluvatar. So they're the same person :D

This image is really amazing. I've often wondered what Glorfindel might have looked like had he appeared in the films, and I have to say that if he had; I hope he would look similar to your painting. Great job!

I love your Glorfindel, the coloring the look on his face, his eyes and the fact he looks young and manly and not young and girly like some I have seen. Truely a great work of art.
