Yavanna Kelmentari - a Vala from Tolkien's Silmarillion.
I must say you use wonderful vivid colours . Might I guess that your "inner" world is so wonderful too?
Keep up with this good work of yours!!
it's a very beautiful and detailed picture. i especially love her dress! the pic has a slight anime feel, was that intended?
i luv yavanna shes my favourite character in the silmarilion! i have looked EVERYWHERE for something like this... it;s SO beautiful!!!! i dunno but are those trees (the gold and silver) the trees of valinor? i can't remember their names but they kinda emind me of this! i since your a superb artist with LOADS of talent and imagination! this is exactly as i pictured her =D well done!
Have you ever read "Anne of Green Gables" by LM Montgomery? The woman in this picture reminds me of Anne's spirit.
In case you haven't read this book, it's the story of an imaginative, intelligent young girl growing up in a Canadian farmhouse, late 19th century. Anne loves pretending and making up stories about fairies connected with nature.
Kate from Elfwood- You have captured the very essence of Yavanna! A gentle earth mother who grows the beauty of the earth... it's so detailed and colourful... I've seen it on many Tolkien site around the net.
Lovely painting! I love it..i'd like to get some more pictures of goodness Elbereth of Tolkien..Where i can find it? Thanks.
Wow, the detail and color are great. Did you wait til every single layer dries as you drew flowers? I'd never have patience for such a painting. PS: hey, is her head a little small, or is it just me?
You have a great command of detail. It's often hard to bring off a nice composition with so much happening, but you have done it well.
Wow! I had no idea, I hope it won't confuse anyone.
Thanks, that's presicely the effect I was going for.
Thank you! I'm a happy owner of a terrific set of watercolours.
Thank you! I'll try to upload some as soon as I can.
Thank you! I took me AGES to do all the detail. : ) I don't think I'll do anything as detailed any time soon. I'm glad to hear it was worth the effort, though.
Wow, really nice!
I love all the yellow and stuff, adds a cool warm glow =D
Beautiful colors and very graceful! It's great to see pictures with so much life in them!
