Nice image [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a good likeness of Thorin, I like the use of profile, and his expression conveys dignity and strength with a tinge of sorrow. A small suggestion would be in the area where Orcrist is in front of the mountain, perhaps a little more contrast is needed between sword and background to bring the sword closer to the eye and have the mountain recede a bit. (It might be just the way the image reproduced here that makes them blend in to each other a bit). But perhaps just a bit more difference in the values might bring the sword forward and recede the mountain back. Nice work on showing the reflective surface of the sword and also lovely detail on the mountain entrance :-).

Thanks for the advice! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks so much for your wonderful comment! I have to say it is the longest one I have ever received! Also, thanks so much for pointing that out . . I knew something wasn't right but couldn't put my finger on it. I'll try and fix that whenever I can! Wink
