Her Part Seemed to Her Ignoble by silamir Her Part Seemed to Her Ignoble by silamir
“My friend, you had horses, and deed of arms, and the free fields; but she, being born in the body of a maid, had a spirit and courage at least the match of yours. Yet she was doomed to wait upon an old man, whom she loved as a father, and watch him falling into a mean dishonoured dotage; and her part seemed to her more ignoble than that of the staff he leaned on."

Éowyn of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. The scan is not so great, my new scanner seems to scan things very light so I darkened it in Photoshop, which never looks quite right to me. *shrug*

How elegant! The feel is so wistful, and the piece has such wonderful attention to detail - the waves in her hair, the creases in her flowing dress, the patterns... It's very lovely. :aww:

Amazing work! You really managed to capture that torn feeling between obeying and fullfilling your dream. Éowyn is such an interesting character.

I love the design of her dress - did you model it after the costumes used in the movies, or is this your own design?

thanks :) it was mostly inspired by the medieval dress the reference model was wearing with my own touch of what I imagine Éowyn to war. :)

Scanners always never do color pencil or pencil drawings justice.

The shading looks good from here! Without the shading it might have been too washed out. The pose looks good too.

:) I didn't realize everyone would like it so much. hehe I guess I'd just been working on it so long I couldn't really look at it objectively anymore.

You never know what others will like, but the only important thing is that YOU like it and had fun while drawing it. :nod:
I like it because of its expression and the beautiful shading. :)
