Arwen Reading- Colored by AinuLaire Arwen Reading- Colored by AinuLaire
Finished! :faint: Took a long time, but worth the results. Done with prismacolor pencils and graphite :heart:

Original line art (which is my own, but if someone else wants to color it, you can XD) is here: [link]

Anyone who is familiar with the original picture will see that the color scheme of the background is cooler; that is intentional, I added grey to basically all of it so Arwen would especially stand out.

Hardest part of the whole picture? The frakking floor, at least drawing it. Coloring wise, probably the face, to get all those tones. The bg was not bad at all, surprisingly.

Comments, critique, etc is appreciated.

I liked the original sketch you had, but this is much nicer in color. I had seen the other one before as someone had cropped and colored it and used it as an avatar on Minas Tirith.

Glad to see the original work! A true capture of Arwen!

This is fantastic! The room, the deateals, the colours, everything! Arwen`s pose is very natural, and I like her dress and its color! Congratulation! You have extra talent! To be honest, this is the best picture in the DeviantArt, I`ve seen!

This piece is absolutely stunning.

My eyes are most especially drawn the richly colored contrasts in the folds of her red velvet sleeve.

Simply Gorgeous.
