Talk:Elrond

How about changing main image of Elrond? He looks a buit...uh...odd? --Morgan 12:20, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

What did you have in mind?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  13:40, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
That Elrond looks odd in this picture.--Morgan 16:06, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
If no one disagrees, I suggest changing to the image used in this old revision [[1]]. Morover, this other image was uploaded with permission. Unsigned comment by Morgan (talk • contribs).
I honestly don't like any of the images of Elrond already uploaded to TG.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:32, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
I prefer the current image to the previous one, but, as KingAragorn says, I don't think any of them are particularly great. I would be tempted by a film-image, and would suggest this one if it weren't for the weird contrast. On deviantArt, the vast majority of Elrond images are Hugo Weaving. Our current image is fourth on a Google Image search for Elrond. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:52, 18 November 2011 (UTC)
I like this one. We can always ask DeviantART artists for permission.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  13:08, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
It is good, and do ask away as it would be nice to have it here anyway, but I think we should have a film one. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:05, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
Would you prefer a photograph from the film, or an artistic picture of Hugo Weaving's Elrond?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  14:11, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
That's defiantely a great picture, KA! We should ask him/her for permission, and put use it as our main image. Maybe we should also ask if could have these images too: Fingon, LĂșthien, Legolas, LOTR, The Lost Road, Galadriel, Maedrhos, Arwen, Finrod, Finrod, Tirion, Gandalf rides to MT, Aragorn, Rivendell. Actually al his/her images are great. --Amroth 14:33, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
A photo, because I think we have so few of them! And yes, a general request to use their art would be good. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 15:00, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
How's this one?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:34, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
That one is good. --Amroth 18:53, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
It is! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:45, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
