And nice braids, it's hard to picture what really JRRT had in mind with his braids, I like your interpretation :thumbsup:

Nice portrait :love: What does Astaldo mean? Wasn't it rather a title of Tulkas?

Thank you.) He was called a "valiant", and and the Quenya - "Astaldo" is Valiant, why not?

I really like this. :) You keep calling him Astaldo though- does it say somewhere that that's his mother-name? I hadn't seen that, and I've looked.

He was called "The Valiant", and the Quenya - "Astaldo" is Valiant, may be not amilesse, but why it can not be epesse?).

That works. :) I was just curious because I really wanted to know what his amilesse was. I guess we just don't know. XD
