very beautiful. i love the intimation of stars hidden in her robes, and the halo effect implying the brightness of her eyes, which could not be achieved in a technical sense :)

What I like most is the ethereal quality about her.
I hope you plan to do the rest of the Valar. Especially Namo!
Hint! Hint! ;)

GOD bless

This is such a beautiful piece of work. The pale blue moon-like colors. The way her hair sweeps is romantic and lovely. I adore the dark lines near her skull. That nose is gorgeous, too. Beautiful! I'm delighted you would share such a wonderful piece with us all.
