Really impressive!  The smoothness of the ink is highly impressive on its own, I'll say

Lol you fell into the inktober trap. But well done! Neat idea of using both black and white ink.

This!!!
This is seriously one of the most powerful renderings of that scene I've ever seen. As usual, the less detailed the drawing, the more vivid the imagination of the viewer can make it.

Your very kind. I'm really pleased that that was your immediate response. The feedback means a lot, so thanks for taking the time.

A powerful artwork deserves recognition, doesn't it?
Imho getting personal, focussed feedback from "peers" is one of the reasons people use DA (or at least why I joined).
So I'm glad you were pleased by my sincere comment :)

As for the Greco-Roman influence in your Tolkien-inspired works - it makes complete sense, not just for the Lady of Lorien, but in general; and the longer I think about it the more I am finding it rather a refreshing change in fact (while duly recognizing I'm guilty as charged, using a vaguely medieval "mise-en-scène" myself :) )

Your unique vision of Tolkien's characters as well as your work with light and contrasts is an inspiration to me.
