Such a tortured character! Gwindor was always one of my favorites, and you've really captured such depth in this portrayal of him! Lost his brother horrifically, suffered 14 years in captivity in Angband, lost a limb, and then saw his fiance fall for the man who then brought his home realm to ruin. Poor Gwindor! There is resignation in his eyes, a sadness and pain there. I love the washed out colors, too. Perfect for an Elf whose beauty was supposed to be ruined by Morgoth during his captivity.
EEE, his brown hair looks so pretty. You don't often see many characters with brown hair, its usually blonde, red or black, probably because brown isn't as flashy. I was very pleased to see more brown haired elves in "The Hobbit". They remind me of the colour of a deer's pelt, very natural and foresty.
