Artwork Description

'In the middle of the table, against the woven cloths upon the wall, there was a chair under a canopy, and there sat a lady fair to look upon, and so like was she in form of womanhood to Elrond that Frodo guessed that she was one of those close kindred. Young she was and yet not so. The braids of her dark hair were touched by no frost, her white arms and clear face were flawless and smooth, and the light of stars was in her bright eyes, grey as a cloudless night; yet queenly she looked, and thought and knowledge were in her glance, as of one who has known many things that the years bring. Above her brow her head was covered with a cap of silver lace netted with small gems, glittering white; but her soft grey raiment had no ornament save a girdle of leaves wrought in silver. So it was that Frodo saw her whom few mortals had yet seen; Arwen, daughter of Elrond, in whom it was said that the likeness of Lúthien had come on earth again; and she was called Undómiel, for she was the Evenstar of her people. JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring: Book II, Chapter 1: Many Meetings

Thank you very much indeed. I appreciate the thought. To be honest, this isn't exactly how I imagine Arwen, seeing as I couldn't put down my thoughts so well on to paper at the time. But still, I think the essence of her character has been portrayed fairly.

You have a very unique style that fits Middle-earth nicely. Though it's not exactly how I imagined Arwen, I still appreciate your interpretation. It's very well done; following description while still adding your own touch. Kudos.

P.S. - Normally, I do not comment as I am only a lover of art, not a visual artist myself, but, at seeing this piece had no comments, I just had to correct that. Happy Holidays.

Art at its best.
