Young Undomiel by meadow-rue Young Undomiel by meadow-rue
I had a super-geeky marathon re-watching of all my Lord of the Rings extended edition box sets and it's impossible not to feel like drawing afterwards! :D

A little Mucha inspired. Young Arwen Evenstar, Lady of Imladris.

Copic Multiliner 0.1, Copic Sketch markers (+airbrush), purple ink and white paint.

Arwen & LotR (c) Tolkien and Newline.

Young Undomiel by *dark-persian. From the suggester: "A lovely take on an original idea: what Arwen might've looked like as an Elven maiden, centuries before she met and married her lover Aragorn. And that detailed and colorful background is hand-drawn; it's not a texture!" ( Suggested by HaveTales-WillTell and Featured by aunjuli )

I don't know how I hadn't seen it earlier ; o ; I love Arwen, easily one of my most beloved LoTR characters (if not the mot beloved one ; o ; I'm a sucker for Elves!) Beautiful job ! amazing! :)

As much as I like your gorgeous drawing, beautiful colors and 3 colored background... I have an unmistakable grunge against Arwen T_T It tore my heart into pieces to see that it's beautiful O_o but it has a character I hate... Her strong princess and afterward damsel in distress portrayals, are just to goddamn used in fantasy novels and I realize that Tolkien might have been a standard setter... I respect him for that, truly.

But Arwen in the movie.... hmm
And talking about romance I'd like to quote my sister that is a very keen annalist on cliches:
"Romance in LotR is just thrown in there, for the sake of it. In the book it's a symbol: the union of 2 worlds, old and new. But in the movie, it's a bit 'pulled by the hair' so to say."
And she made a pretty steadfast comment regarding this love:
"In the novel, Aragorn and Arwen's love is a pebble in the story. In the movie it's a boulder."

Get my drift... Too much adoration for a character that's thrown in there for the sake of it... >.>

Sorry if I was rude, but I just wanted to show why I tore my heart...
Promise I'll look in your gallery though ^_^
