Eowyn of Edoras by vvveverka Eowyn of Edoras by vvveverka
"...to stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire."

Éowyn (Lord of the Rings)

Éowyn of Edoras is my next picture of LotR characters. She is a shieldmaiden called as "White Lady of Rohan", the niece of King Théoden - smart and proud. She's very close to me cause she is a strong woman who's not worried to fight for the things she loves. That's why I think she's better than Arwen. Not only beautiful but also decisive and brave. Acted by Miranda Otto :love:.

Used stuff: watercolor pencils blended in COPIC markers, multiliners 0,05/0,03, golden and white gelpen, opaque white, red acrylics
Size: 2,5*3,5 inches
Period: about 6 or 7 hours I think

I can say only one thing: I DO HATE MY SCANNER! :giggle: As usual it did typical terrible job with the colors...Hmmmm, hope you like it anyway! :D

True colors:

The next one: Oh, yes! Our beloved Legolas! :D (Just have to decide which reference I'm ganna use. Mmmm, difficult decision... Maybe the one in which he's fighting in the rain at the Battle of Helm's Deep...? :D)

So do I!:D I think she's most beautiful when smiling. She deserves to be happy. In the picture at least.
Thank you! :hug:

That is absolutely stunning! I really love all the small details and the beautiful colours - it doesn't look as though its been messed up by a scanner (I really do like the colours :D), but I know what you mean about hating scanners! My scanner ruins every picture I upload, so I can sympathise with you there :hug: But it really is an amazing picture, excellent work! :XD:

My scanner hates (changes :giggle:)all shades of red and orange but the rest of colors is ok. I always try hard to set the colors as they look in real. But I never can do it perfectly so that's why I usually take a pic of it too. ;)I think we should set a club of people who want new better scanners! :giggle:
Anyway, I'm honoured you like my Eowyn. It means a lot to me! :hug:

This is lovely! I really like how you've used all the different media in this "harmoniously" - I don't think I could do this for fear that I would mess up at some point, but you've created a stunning piece of work.

I thought the same before. It was something new, unusual to me. The steps are different than I was used to so I thought I wouldn't make it. But I got used to it quickly. It's easy (although I still have a lot to learn) and that's it - if you make a mistake you can fix it easily! :D
And thank you very much for your nice comment! :D :hug:
