'I told you so...' by avi17 'I told you so...' by avi17
And then Glorfindel spent the next thousand years or so in Mandos, feeling really stupid.

So yeah, silliness. XD I make no excuses for this other than that it amused me, as usual. Don't even ask why the first panel looks nothing like the second (apparently far in Mandos are little chibi ghost things. And Mandos apparently has interesting taste in random decorations). Also I'm aware know nothing about armor. XD

If you don't know, this is a reference to the death of Glorfindel in "The Fall of Gondolin"- he is fighting a Balrog high on a mountain, and he stabs it and it begins to fall from the mountain, but as it does it grabs him by the hair and they both fall to their deaths. ...That just seems so avoidable to me. XD (And Ecthelion really does die "in his own freaking fountain," but we're gonna not go into that. XD)

Medium- Traditional lineart w/ microns, flat color in GIMP (I'm cheap AND lazy!)
Time- Too much XD I'm slower with even the simplest digital stuff than traditional. (fails)

Ecthelion and Glorfindel (c) Tolkien

Hahaha I'll be honest, I laughed like crazy while at the same time tears fell and I felt a sob coming since his death killed me, but this is hilarious and genius!
