Galadriel, lady of light by Moumou38 Galadriel, lady of light by Moumou38
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

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.

Totally great to see her again... :) I love her braid and her dress.
Have you noticed? She seems thinner than she was in the previous drawings - is it because she is still at ME, or because Celeborn arrived to Aman nd didn't approve of her additional weight?

:iconmoumou38:
Moumou38 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks very much...thinner ? perhaps, I don't know, I don't really think about her weight when I draw ... I'm not really focused on it and if Celeborn did not approve then he would be an idiot :p

It can also be that it happened naturally when he came back. :D
When are you going to draw another C&G together?

Thank-you I think that this actress has a very recognizable mouth and smile. I spent the last few days watching movies of her and her smile is sticked in my head... I truly loved her smile...

merci merciiii, le secret c'est que je me suis fait une cure de film avec Cate Blanchett dernièrement (même chose avec Marton Csokas prochainement xD) ....j'ai regardé Elizabeth, Elizabeth Golden age, Robin des Bois etc. .... dans la même journée....je me suis imprégnée de ses traits en fait !
Je trouve qu'elle a une bouche très très très reconnaissable, un peu comme Liv Tyler. Et un nez particulier aussi, il est pas hyper joli et tout fin comme les actrices refaites, il est naturel...

I love the way you model her on Cate, it works so well, especially in this picture and the expression on her face. I dont think theres anything wrong with the lighting lol :P, Its good!!!

here's a challenge for you: you may have already done this but why not have a go at drawing them attacking Dol Guildor and Galadriel throwing down the walls?? would be sooooo awesome.
Too much to ask? :please: oh do it it would be amazing!!!!

thanks very much for appreciating my art.

About your idea, I must say that I have already thought about doing that but I had never been able to have a precise idea about how she had thrown down the walls...i mean if it was so easy, why would Celeborn even bother to risk his life and his army by fighting Dol Goldur, see ?
So I truly have no idea about how it happened or what it could look like

:icon045-lucky:
045-lucky Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
True, I guess It is fairly impossible! although another idea springs to mind...

Haldir: "Hey, aren't we taking out Dol Guildor today?"
Celeborn: " no, turns out Galadriel already did that last week, she dosen't think its worth risking everybodys lives for something so pointless.*sighs* I am so bored..."

lol!! XD not very cannon but still funny...

anyway, this does not help me to imagine what Galadriel did...no one will ever know I guess;

I read some fics that suggested she sang some powerful song, kind of what Sam would call an enchantment, but only after the army had won the battle and searched the place for prisoners.

:iconmoumou38:
Moumou38 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah I like the idea of the song but still, it's hard for me to imagine....because Tolkien never spoke openly of it...I mean how is this suppose to look like ? had the fortress been totally destroyed, or she purified the aera ? no idea...

Well, where Tolkien said little is exactly the place for imagination... Though I understand what you mean about too little information.
