Estel's self portrait - :aww:. This is the cutest idea I've seen for a long time.
What a beautiful drawing. I love your idea and how you did it. Great!

Es ist wirklich, wirklich genial. Ich liebe solche kleinen Details, die man manchmal erst nach dem dritten Hinsehen findet, und die dann das Ganze noch viel Liebenswerter machen :heart:.

The details are amazing and I love the whole idea (but I'm biased, Elrond is my favorite). Lovely work.

very nice family scene. It can be hard to do those. I shy away from those scenes. they give me the worst trouble.

If you never try drawing a scene, you will never able to do it. :)

That's so CUTE! :clap:

What a great idea! I love how there's the cute little innocence of storytelling, but you've also got the map of Numenor and the drawing of the ring of Barahir which add a little intrigue to the scene. I think this would have to be the best concept I've ever come across on DA in my entire time here so far! well done! :+fav: :deviation:

...colour version? :please:

Aww, this is lovely :D I love the self-portrait - and Elrond's slightly wistful expression is perfect. You must have spent hours on this - good job! :XD:

Thanks! :blushes: No, I didn't spend so much hours on this, because it isn't a too big drawing, only 21X29 cm.

And it's funny to me that we came up with the same idea because I've recently drawn a very similar picture:)
