Goldberry by JinxMim Goldberry by JinxMim
I read the Adventures of Tom Bombadil for the first time and it describes Goldberry when she still dwelt in the river. Tom meets her when she reaches up and yanks him into the water by his beard. I thought this was an interesting insight into her character before she became more "civilized" as she appears in the Lord of the Rings when she plays hostess to the hobbits. Therefore, I portrayed her here as more of a mischievous sprite.

I am awed by how well this artwork translates the spirit of Goldberry!  Well done!

You know, this art really opened my eyes. I feel like I finally "get" their relationship. I can see a sort of reciprocal playfulness. And how they met makes a lot of sense. Great art!

I really, really like this one. Her expression is perfect and exactly what I imagined a sprite would look like when she's up to something.
