here's my view about the famous Lords of the Ring scene, where Eowyn fights the Nazgul...
it was made for an Artorder contest.

edit:I've made a new version based on critics
here:
tell me which one is the best for you!

Both good, but I think I like this one a bit more. The darker lighting suits the scene better and it highlights the finer details, like the blood vessels of the wings, a little bit more.

It's an amazing piece of work though, for one of my favourite scenes in the trilogy.

Both versions are wonderful but i prefer the first version, a bit more evocative for me. Really good, technicals and emotional both, and so good representation of the scene. Also good effects on the movements, for example the skirt and hairs

WOW!! Hi, I was looking for an Eowyn concept that captures her strong and power. Something very different from the movie. Something that came from an unique mind and imagination. And I found it in your art. 

I manage a geek fan page, My Geek Hunter, and I would love to post your art next March 8th due to International Women Day. I will give you credit on the post. Please let me know if you are OK with this.

Congratulations for the scene.

Thank you.

I like this as an illustration of the emotional moment of the book. I appreciate that you have not necessarily made it a literal illustration of the moment.

they are both amazing, even if i'd say i prefer this one, dunno why, mmm maybe more defined and i like the sword design more than the other ^^
They're still both great artworks

ah wait, just a tip

Eowyn was disguised as a male knight, so well, uhm, ehr, how to say, her chest's shape has probably looked strange to the other Rohirrims XD

yeah I know it's not "cannon" it's just my view as I liked to paint her as an obvious woman warrior...
Gurdim's avatar
^^ reminds me a picture about that part, made by Frank Franzetta

it was awesome, i love Franzetta's art, but well Eowyn's butt and girly legs were completely exposed xD i imagined the other knights "friend you have a really feminine lower body for being a super manly rohan's knight :O" XD
