very beautiful. i love the intimation of stars hidden in her robes, and the halo effect implying the brightness of her eyes, which could not be achieved in a technical sense :)

What I like most is the ethereal quality about her.
I hope you plan to do the rest of the Valar. Especially Namo!
Hint! Hint! ;)

GOD bless
