Aredhel by Lena-Hyena Aredhel by Lena-Hyena
The sons of Fingolfin were Fingon, who was afterwards King of the Noldor in the north of the world, and Turgon, lord of Gondolin; their sister was Aredhel the White. She was younger in the years of the Eldar than her brothers; and when she was grown to full stature and beauty she was tall and strong, and loved much to ride and hunt in the forests. There she was often in the company of the sons of FŽanor, her kin; but to none was her heart's love given. Ar-Feiniel she was called, the White Lady of the Noldor, for she was pale though her hair was dark, and she was never arrayed but in silver and white.

(Tolkien, The Silmarillion)

I love her face, she is very beautiful :)... The bracelet is very nice too... Aredehel is one of my favourite female elves in The Silmarillion, she has a lot of personality... But for some reason, in Tolkien's woks women with strong personalities often have awful destinies

Thank you. I agree about her personality.
But it seems to me that women in Tolkien's works have awful destinies in general, regardless of their personalities.

Guess you're right... And many of the men too :D... I know I'm being rude and it's your decision, but you should put this in your main gallery... I mean, I wish my gallery art was as good as your scraps.

Thank you, you are very kind, but I am not satisfied with any of my old stuff, so I tend to dump it into scraps...

Such a good work doesn't deserve to be in Scraps :) Aredhel is my favourite character.

Thank you. I love Aredhel as a character, too.
But I feel this pic doesn't really do her justice. Wish it was better.

Still, I think it would deserve its place in your main gallery :( It's so sad you banished it :(

I hope that one day you'll create an Aredhel picture which will be more to your liking :hug:

Odlican rad, tvoj se stil definitivno prepoznaje, par stvari bih promjenila vrat malo tanji i ruka nije bas u redu ali to je nevazno. Imas super texture, svidja mi se kako postizes sjene i volumen. Najdrazi dio su ledja od konja, tu ima dosta slobode i gesture sto mi se svidja (:

Hvala puno.

Što se praktične strane umjetnosti tiče, ja sam amater - moja je profesija teorija umjetnosti i zbog toga sam itekako svijesna nedostataka - od anatomije, preko kompozicije pa do kolorita i Bog zna čega sve ne. Ali došla sam do točke u životu gdje sam doslovce "pukla" - i privatno i poslovno - i onda sam otkrila da me ovo spašava. Crtam jer mi je to terapija. I trudim se prihvatiti izazove, makar ih i ne savladala savršeno. A sloboda izraza - o Bože, kad bih samo mogla - ali sumnjam. Riječi su moje oruđe i oružje, ne boja i linija.

Dajem sve od sebe.

i mene slikanje spasava, ja sam inzinjer informatike i matematike po structi, ali to vise ne zelim da radim. Kada sam pukla rodila sam kcer i sada imam nju i moju umjetnost i muza sto me u stvarnosti spasava. Slobodu izrazaja svako moze ali se triba osloboditi inhibicija Tebi ovo dobro ide i samo nastavi, ali se malkice oslobodi svoje zone komforta i super ces stvari postignunit :hug: znam da dajes sve od sebe to se vidi u radovima, zato te i gledam, stavljas svoju dusu u radove.
