Elrond by Hrivalasse Elrond by Hrivalasse
I still get all my inspiration from Tolkien ;)

A bit random. I never really liked movie-Elrond's robes, they weren't lordly enough for me. Also I had this face edit on Caelest's base and wanted to do something with it.
Every part of the clothes has been reshaded at least once *dies* The design for the silver robe was different in the beginning but the shading didn't work and during my countless attempts at reshading it turned into this.

This could alternatively be titled 'Get out of my house!' or 'Elrond Prima Porta' XD I first used an outstreched arm from one of the female natural poses but the hand on that one wasn't perfect to start with (which I totally understand, I can spend an hour on a hand and it still looks crappy, like here) and when I tried to make it bigger it looked like a disfigured claw, so I scrapped it. Then I didn't know what to do with that hand until I turned away from dolling to revise classical archaeology and found that the statue of Augustus of Prima Porta would provide me with a nice hand pose for Elrond. Of course the arm is posed much lower on my doll which led to the funny 'get out' look. And this is the story of the weird hand XD

Base: :iconelvencrystaline: (there's not so much left of it though)

Well, I can see what you are saying with the get out look. But when I saw this a dialogue immediately popped into my head...

Elrond: Welcome to Rivendell, I am Elrond Hal-
Me: Yeah, yeah look buddy, I just want to know where the free way is. Stupid Brits can't make the maps right.
Elrond:....... *sigh* Down the road, take a left, go straight until you reach Mc Donalds and then take a right.
Me: Thanks! *drives off*
Random Elf: My Lord? Are you alright?
Elrond: *sniffles* No one comes to visit anymore! Curse you hotel chains!

Sorry, it's random...

Ohh, I love this! I don't see anything wrong with the hand. It was a great story though! LOL
Nice job!

I always thought that Elrond in the movies wasn't like Elrond at all. The robes didn't really matter anymore at that point.

Very beautiful version of Elrond. =)

I love the flow of the whole doll, the folds sit superbly. And the starriness is prettiful! I really love it and the reshading paid off. He looks far more lordly now and his face... very lordly.

Oh wow, his gorgeous. I love the soft shading and the stars on his cloak :).

Beautiful outfit design and gorgeous shading, I love the star-sparkles on his cloak. He is also very instantly recognizable even without seeing the title. :)

Yes, it very nearly killed me!
RoboElfSuperLee Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010
gah stop being so amazing, I'll end up clogging my favs with all your work :love:

He's definately saying 'Get out my house' but thats becuase i could actually picture him saying it.... no Idea why xD. Still the arm position shows off the beautiful cloak shading. The whole outfit is awesome, definately better than the glorified bathrobe look he had in the film

Hrivalasse Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2010
Thank you :love:

'glorified bathrobe look' made me laugh so hard, it's so fitting XD

Nah, I think that's the stern "Elladan, how many times do I have to remind you to wipe your boots?!" face. ;)

My inner seamstress would just about kill for several yards of whatever fabric the cloak and the silver tunic are made from. They're absolutely GORGEOUS, and the cloak especially is much more fitting the bearer of Vilya than those autumn tones Hugo Weaving was in.
Hrivalasse Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2010
That's a good line too XD I should upload a version in scraps with speech bubbles.

It's probably some fancy elvish fabric ;)
Aranov Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
Speech bubbles, or just a list of captions in the description... ;)

Oh, probably. *sigh* Elves. Lucky, lucky creatures.

I have to say that I love his cloak :D

And the shading and detail are beautiful!!

Ciao x

The cloak is officially awesome. The eyebrows remind me of Hugo Weaving's XD

Great job!
