Arwen Evenstar by Cynthia-Blair Arwen Evenstar by Cynthia-Blair
Arwen Evenstar, elfin princess of Imladris
daughter of Elrond Half-Elven
drawn from a film capture in the Fellowship. my usual charcoal pencils; background done in Photoshop.

I admired her most as the warrior princess rather than the regal daughter/queen

#2 in my LOTR series

Thank you! The most noble of all the races of Middle Earth. I would so love to be an elf! I think I cried when Haldir was killed by the Uruk-hai.

I know what you mean! My mom read the LOTR when she was about about my age (13) and finally got me around to reading them (and obviously I LOVED THEM!) I'm a newer fan but VERY obsessed! Anyway I was telling my mom once how fond of Elves I am, and then she smiled sadly and said, "The time of the Elves is drawing near" and I almost started crying! I kept protesting and felt my heart crack about as much as it did when my best friend told me she was moving! :( But I bet there having a good time in the Undying Lands :)

I always used to cry, could never understand why the Elves would want to leave Middle Earth. It seemed so very sad, just when the Dark Lord was overthrown and they could live in peace. I did a painting of that scene in the forest where Sam and Frodo watch the Elves heading towards the Gray Havens, but never finished it in the way I wanted it to come out.

Maybe it was for the best :( As long as the Elves are happy. That would be a hard picture to draw. Many times, i've drawn a picture that I didn't like the result of. My family would protest and say that it was good, and it wasn't that I thought it was horrible but just that I didn't feel like it shared any likeness with the scene. Our biggest critic is ourselves :)

very true! but maybe we are looking for that 'something special' that others don't see, or to evoke a certain feeling or mood. When you don't get that right, even though it's well rendered, you can see it as a fail. But nothing is truly a failure, sometimes it's a lesson in what not to do. :lol:

I always did that for large scale murals but it works well for all sizes. The grid technique is too tedious for me...I'm too impatient, want to get right to the drawing :)
