I love this! The only issue is that ecthelion's helmet doesn't work with how he killed gothmog because it said that his helmet had a spike on it and he stabbed gothmog with it. But these are all so beautiful
No I didn't invent the heraldic symbols. Tolkien described them in some of his published notes on Middle Earth. I can't remeber which volumen but it might be "Peoples of Middle Earth". It's not entirely canonic, but it's not either.
Great interpretation. It's really interesting for me as I have been incidentially drawing some pictures which also feature Gondolindrim heraldry (though not in so prominent position). So it's great to compare this one with my own interpretation...
These are fabulous. I think the helmets fit JRRT's descriptions much better than the film ones, and definitely look more practical. LOL at Maeglin's ninja-like headwear. Great job on the banners as well!
Not exactly from the lord of the Rings. But Tolkien did describe these Gondolin Houses (from the Silmarillion) in his personal notes, which were published later. So no, I did'nt make them up. I interpreted them.
