A Principles of Illustration assignment, which was to do anything we wanted in the proportion of 4.5"x11". I actually wound up coming up with three usable sketches out of the four assigned, so at some point I'll be doing those, too, but this was the one Yuko picked as being the most different for me. So!
I spent the entire sketch alternating between staring at my Mucha poster (Repose da la Nuit) and cursing trees.
I've been trying to draw Beren and Luthein for a long time. Their story is my favorite, and it's been disappointing to fail at rendering anything of the tale. I guess it was time? It's not a particular scene I'm quoting, but in my head (ignoring details of setting) it's when they first meet.
Be proud of me: there is no blue anywhere. (Payne's grey does not count.) Palette inspired by ~SineSquared.
Watercolors, Arches 140lb block, lots of teensy brushes. Watermark because I love this.
I love Lord of the Rings. For some reason, whenever I think of the movies, this scene always stands out to me, when they are running away from a farmer (can't remember his name lol) because Pippin stole from his crops.
I'll probably scrap it later.
Drawn from scratch, no references used.

Haha... it's only more fanart of The Hobbit... The submit page is different... 8( From top left clockwise: -Balin n Dwalin -Kili and Balin being a dwarf grandpa -SKULL DEATHSMASH Brotherly greeting -Teenage Dwalin -Baby Kili -Young Balin and baby dwarf (everyone thinks it's Ori, so I guess it is, ehe)
A sketch of what Galadriel looked like in my mind..before the LoTR movies came out that is.Then i saw Cate Blanchett's portrayal and concluded that she was Galadriel.But still,i've developed a fondness for that old interpretation i had and thought it deserved at least to be on paper for once..
So i need your opinion about this.Do you think i should do a whole scene (with her mirror and hopefully full background and stuff) or something like Mucha's art nouveau illustrations?
Let me know what you think would look better.pleeease..? :]
the character is,of course,JRR Tolkien's creation.
