new computer...first shot ... that's odd to use this one...the screen is soooo awesome but still, it feels weird, i'm a little bit lost.

Aaaanyway this is a drawing of my favorite Lady : Galadriel, the lady of light (from Tolkien's writings blablabla you know...). I've been drawing a lot her husband lately and she felt left out so here's a drawing with her and only her ;p (because she's worth it :D )

About the drawing itself, as you can see, she's in the dark (for a white lady) but I'm trying to adapt my style to the new computer so I really wanted to play with the lighting effects; I still can see the flaws and mistakes of this drawing but I don't feel like I should continue to work on it... sometimes it is too much

Lovely.. That dim light makes the picture so calm.

thanks, she's a very complex character, like the see, she can have a very calm aspect and a wilder one.

That's true. Like in the movie "Fellowship of the Ring" she snaps when she sees the ring.
"In place of a dark lord, you would have a queen! Not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Treacherous as the seas! Stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me and despair!"
..And then she calms down and is sort of meek/tranquil again.

I think the dark in this picture works really well. It just adds something to it.

I love the hair, it's different from how most pictures of her have it just flowing down. I love those pictures too, but she had to change her hairstyle at some point during her life.
