I don't know. I prefer this colored version, personally.

Some might be uncomfortable with the intimacy this picture suggests. But, I like it. And Tolkien portrayed them as deeply in love, representing marriage on an almost archetypal level.

Never imagined Goldberry to be naked, but hey... why not?

I don't imagine her to be naked all the time, but she's taking a bath so...  Though because she should be the River daughter I somehow think that being naked kinda fit her...mmmmm :D

Of course not naked all the time ;-)

But whenever I picture her in my head I see her clad in some sort of blue-green dress.

Pořád nechápu, co byla zač. Elfka to teda nebyla? Nějaká lesní žínka, hádám.

Ono to tam ani nikdy není pořádně vysvětleno co má být zač, ale protože bývá nazývána taky The River-daughter (já si teď nevzpomenu jak o překládají do češtiny :D) tak si jí asi představuju jako jakousi vodní vílu :)

Já taky tak nějak. Škoda, že už se na to nemůžeme Tolkiena zeptat.

Moje oblíbené postavy z příběhu, mimochodem. Tvůj Tom je přesn takovej, jak si ho představuju. Akorát Zlatěnku si představuju jinak, ale tahle je taky moc hezká.

Aw, they're cute together. I've always loved these two. I'd kind of like to see brighter colours for this particular pair, but it's a gorgeous drawing anyway.

This is a great picture! The couple is creepy, though...

The image of Bombadil is excellent, but your interpretation of Goldberry is extraordinary! She is far more a sensual river spirit than the usual portrayal of a slender girl in a white dress. Goldberry's washing day looks like quite an immersive experience.

Thank you!
I wanted her to look more like the river than ordinary human, she's too extraordinary being to imagine her just normally human-like (:
