Wow. I think this perfectly portrays Eowyn from this badass moment in ROTK: "She did not blench: maiden of the Rohirrim, child of kings, slender but as a steel-blade, fair yet terrible"

Yes, this is what I was going for; and also to show how, even though she was afraid, she had the courage to challenge the Witch-king.

Well done Eleni, the character's face is my favorite part which is always challenging. Great work as usual!

Nice artwork!  I love the way you've drawn her, and the expression of fierceness on her face.  :love:

Thank you! The expression in a character is probably the most important part, I think. :)

I know her. She said "I am no man" in a fight scene in the 3rd movie, right?
Reply
:iconeilidh:
eilidh Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Sadly, yes. :) The movie butchered both her speech and her character overall.

Hmm hmm. It would be so much awesome if she said "For Frederick Bishop".

(I said this because she married Peter O'Brien who played Frederick Bishop in Battlefield 1.)
