The Shieldmaiden of Rohan by Fantaasiatoidab The Shieldmaiden of Rohan by Fantaasiatoidab
“My friend, you had horses, and deed of arms, and the free fields; but she, being born in the body of a maid, had a spirit and courage at least the match of yours. Yet she was doomed to wait upon an old man, whom she loved as a father, and watch him falling into a mean dishonoured dotage; and her part seemed to her more ignoble than that of the staff he leaned on."
-Gandalf to Eomer, of Eowyn
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

I felt like drawing her. I really liked this character in the books (so much more than Arwen) and I also enjoyed how Miranda Otto portrayed her in the movies. I've drawn her once before, feel free to take a look at it and laugh as loud as you can :giggle: I guess I've improved a little :)

Awesome! she is my favorite lotr character and I also don't like arwen in the movie. she's just lying on the soft pillows in Rivendell and driving Elrond mad instead of doing something, like slaying a nazgul or fighting 10.000 orcs from mordor

and my friend still wonders why I don't like arwen. Luthien, who is often compared with Arwen at least helped Beren to get the Silmaril.

Love it. I just finished LotR for the first time. Although I have to quibble with you, Arwen is my girl! :D

Yeah, of course. You can ask me almost anything :) Well, as a matter of fact, I learned all this by myself. I've spent last couple of years drawing almost every single day (and most of the nights). The more I draw, the better I get at it :)

Wow, that's quite an achievement! Practice does make perfect. :D Makes me wish I spent more time drawing, I used to.. and then other stuff got in the way, I think they call it life but I'm not sure what that is.. :roll: I'm trying to get back to it though. :D

Keep up the amazing work! :D

Yeah.. Life can get in the way. I used to have a lot of friends, so I couldn't draw much. But now I have only 2 friends whom I see about once or twice a month so... :D I've got lots of free time :D Having no social life has made me better at drawing, I guess.
