EDIT: fixed some characters I wrongly represented as elven instead of humans ^^

Speed painting commission for :iconlady-woods: of some of the Silmarillion's maidens. From the left to the right:

- Varda, queen of the Valar who rules over stars and heavenly grace, cherished by the elves;
- Luthien, the most beautiful elf-maiden who ever lived, daughter of Melian and legendary lover of Beren, a human for whom she became mortal;
- Nienor, the cursed sister and lover of Turin, who slew the great dragon Glaurung to save the people;
- Melian, a Maia of Nature and wisdom;
- Yavanna, the Vala of Nature, Growth and Balance.

Beautifully done!  Thought I'd point out that Nienor was sister and wife to Turin...Hurin was their father.

This is amazing! What a great achievement- and such a challenge too! I love their varying emotions and the perspective is great! I think Luthien and Varda are my favs-  and the swirling hairstyles are gorgeous! :D

Beautiful work. I'm glad you corrected the mistake as It was strange to see Nienor with a pointy ear :D I wish they would continue to make movies based on Silmarillion someday.
