This was drawn for a school project based on an existing piece of literature. I chose The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. Luthien is a half-elf, half-Maia who fell in love with Beren, a mortal man, and decided to live as a mortal to be with him.

I've poured over "Of Beren and Luthien" countless times for my design of Luthien, and really, no one can convince me save for Tolkien himself that she was wearing a gown the entire time =P Also, all elves know how to fight and since Middle Earth is an dangerous place, I designed two daggers that she'd fight with. I picture her movements to be very lyrical like dance, yet incredibly deadly at the same time.
I kept her color scheme to reflect the heavens and tried not to give her any warm earthy colors. Those colors I reserved for Beren ~_^

Colored in Photoshop 7 with Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. I'm not quite sure how to color on the compy yet but I'm learning!
