A fine depiction, and very close to my own conception of Glorfindel. (I'm no graphic artist, but would find Elves hard to draw. How do you make them look slightly more than Human, especially in good looks?)

Thank you!
I find elves difficult as well. I don't even try to make them particularly beautiful or "exact" (I doubt I would succeed in that, I'm better with the sympathetic and the peculiar types), but instead try to depict the elvish characteristics using visual tricks such as complementary colors, unrealistic lighting or contrasts to other elements/characters in the image. Here my attempt was to show the magic or beauty of the elf with exaggerating the sinister, dark scenery versus the light, almost glowy character.

This is stunningly lovely, the character and horse are absolutely glowing in the darkness and gloom surrounding them, beautiful job ^_^
