Lady of Lorien by Lamorien Lady of Lorien by Lamorien
Still reading the Silmarillion so I'm just like. Super-obsessed with Elves right now.

I'm not sure if I'm 100% finished with it but right now I happen to like it and I was afraid of over-doing it.

Prints, pillows, iPod cases and more available in my Society6 shop! [link]

I really need to read his book.

This is a beautifully drawn picture.

Thank you! It's a very time-consuming book, but well worth it if you're into the history of Middle Earth.

I am definitely going to try. I tried at one point, but I got buried under school work. I will have to try again.

a very melancholy image of Galadriel. very much so her as the lady of lorien rather then "the lady of radiant light" as her name is rendered early in the silm. :)

put me in mind of her song in the fellowship...

"and if of ships i then should sing, what ship would come for me? what ship could bear me hither across so wide a sea?"

I know what you mean. Most people seem to skip the poetry in lotr, but some of it is just so expressive. Galadriel's in particular kicks like a mule imo. :)

Very pretty! I really like her headdress and how her hair kind of disappears!

GLORFINDEL AND ECTHELION O_O

... no pressure or anything ^^ eheheheeee

Melian doesnt get enough artwork of her, she's so important, a very important part of Aragorn's lineage. Part Elf, Part Human and part Maia! You get why he's so badass, looking back on it.

Aragorn is the MAN. Yes, I always feel like a lot of the women get sort of left out of the epicness of the Silmarillion. I'm definitely planning on Melian, CERTAINLY Luthien (maybe even Beren) and since I am terrible at drawing men and really need the practice I'll have to put a few of these Elf-men on my list.

I'm working on doing a composition of Fingon when he sings and plays his harp among the cliffs of Angband to seek out Maedhros. TOTAL BROMANCE MOMENT.

OMG YOU THINK SO TOO? O_O

XD Yay!

Honestly, dashing off without listening to anyones advice on a complete suicide mission to look for someone who is probably dead? Fingon and Medhros are such an adorable Bromance, but so sad ;_;

I'd like to see you try Luthien, your style suits her I would think. Ack, I feel like I should draw more silmarillion stuff but I'm much more of a dwarf drawer than an elfy one.

Anyway I'll look forward to it ^^

yay dwarfs! I wish I could draw Dwarfs better but they're so angular, and I find that a bit challenging. The only thing about Dwarves I really enjoy drawing is their beards. Beards are fun to draw.

I had a mind at one point to do portraits of everyone in the Fellowship, and perhaps a few extras like Eowyn and Faramir...that is a BIG project. I have to think about that before I dive in haha.

Yes life gets in the way quite a bit doesnt it?

Beards ARE fun, I have a beard fetis, all the men I draw have beards unless they are elves... probably why I dont like drawing them so much ^^'

I also like to draw blemishes on the skin and age lines and things, again not so much for elves so *shrug* I always draw Dwarves with angular armour and clothing but thick rounded muscles and things.
