Glorfindel of the Golden Flower Turnaround by 89ravenclaw
I'm going to hate this when I look at it tomorrow, but I finally 'finished' this. It took me way too long because me and clean lines do not go together; I'm a rough and paint kind of artist.
I originally wanted to try and play with his color scheme and base it more on a celandine (yellow and greens), but it didn't look right with the color schemes I have going on for Gondolin as a whole. Greens and yellows are a lot closer to what I have going on for Doriath elves in my mind (I'm also using greens for more dubious characters and locations within the Fall of Gondolin narrative). So instead I went with the color scheme I had in my original concept painting for him, which are more earthly browns, blues, and yellows.
Once I have the color schemes for the other twelve captains of Gondolin, I'll come back to this and try to find a way for a more celandine palette.
In any case, I got the shapes to all represent the flower, though it does make the armor look a bit too second age (change of color should fix that). Luckily, the other armor concepts I have for the twelve captains look radically different from this.

PS I really want to get someone to model this in Maya so I can rig it.
