Artwork Description

Then Varda went forth from the council, and she looked out from the height of Taniquetil, and beheld the darkness of Middle-earth beneath the innumerable stars, faint and far. Then she began a great labour, greatest of all the works of the Valar since their coming into Arda. She took the silver dews from the vats of Telperion, and therewith she made new stars and brighter against the coming of the Firstborn; wherefore she whose name out of the deeps of time and the labours of Eä was Tintallë, the Kindler, was called after by the Elves Elentári, Queen of the Stars.

-J.R.R. Tolkien: The Silmarillion

I am hard-pressed indeed to find praise enough for this work. As an avid Tolkien scholar, I can say that this is an accurate and beautiful impression of Varda/Elbereth/Elentári! It portrays her majesty as well as serenity. I am lost for words.

That's beautiful. You've done a lot with the medium, pencil isn't an easy medium to get such a polished image from.
