Thanks! There's nothing stopping you from using the wings. I've always found them impressive, suited the Noldor.

Wonderful looking. Using the Hussard wings for a Noldor rider is just a touch of genius :)

Wow!!
This issuch magnificent work, mainly considering how vague Tolkien's descriptions of the Noldor armour is. So fantastical, but yet so similar to many forms of eastern european armour during the middle ages.
You rock!!!

You know I've been paying attention to a lot of eastern europe armour. It's really interesting how they bridged the gap between middle eastern and west european styles. Love those winged hussars! haven't seen anything like it other than the samurai standards...which would also be an interesting look.

Great picture! I like the attention to detail.

I'm curious -- did you have any particular Noldorin characters in mind when you drew this out? There's quite a few of them in 'The Silmarillion'.

Not really. I just wanted to illustrate the faceless masses. Glad you like it.

It turned out pretty well for something that started out as a simple sketch.
