LotR - P.E.T.E by SarahFriesen LotR - P.E.T.E by SarahFriesen
The result of one silly day. A few of the Tolkien Elves who were jipped when it came to the movie versions.

r-l: Glorfindel, Haldir, Elrohir & Elladan.

Characters obviously (c) J.R.R. Tolkien


edit Jan 8, 2009: man. this is probably one of the worst drawn pieces in my gallery, and yet it continues to be my most favourited piece. This totally boggles the mind, LOL.

I was also really disappointed when it ended up being Arwen showing up in the movie, Glorfindel was a pretty cool character :/

(and also, just for future reference: he has like one scene- when Arwen and Figwit (?) are talking and the latter says that they cannot delay, it shows some of the elves marching with them, and Glorfindel's the blond one just in front of them. talk about underrated cameos)

Is that confirmed by creators? I feel like every blond background elf has been labelled Glorfindel by someone at some point, so I'm basically of the stance that if he didn't feature, have any lines, or get named on screen... it's not worth adding to "movie canon" as an appearance.

I thought it was acknowledged as a legitimate role, but I'm not really 100% sure..o.o I think I'll have to check later on.

Yeh, I am not keen on how Arwen saved Frodo, Glorfindel really should have played that part :( and since I am a huge fan of Elves, I cryed when it killed Haldir in the movie! I hate the scene, since Haldir is such an adorable Elf. And for Elladan and Elrohir, I really agree, I wish they were in the movie too, it would have added a bit of background to Arwens life. Kind of...But all together, lovely picture, so true. I enjoyed the books.

Yea, for real, could've saved time / kept the same amount in certain scenes if they just kept true to those elf's real parts from the books. Actually-- he could've done that with multiple parts of the movie.... I don't want to start on a tangent... >.>
