When I looked at this, I did not notice the title, but my first thought at seeing the painting was Aredhel. Then I looked down, and it actually is Aredhel! :D Just shows how awesome your art is. :)

Vert et brun, et plutôt sombre. C'est une jolie palette. Le détail des fleurs et les mini arabesque sur la tenue d'Aredhel, c'est vraiment superbe...Je me répète mais je tiens à te le dire, tu fais un très beau boulot ! :)

I love how this image looks like a stained glass window- the detail is great! Especially the embroidery on her gown and the pearls in her hair. The wildflowers and dark ebony of the trees are very gothic and it looks like it could be an illustration in a Snow  White book :D

Fabulous. Are the flowers painted after snowdrops? I like how her diadem glows and correspondes with the flowers and horse's bridle.

Maybe between 2 and 3 hours, or more, but I've the feeling I did not pay attention to draw all detailes.

Très belle image, toute dans un style un peu médiéval (mais mieux dessiné qu'à l'époque :D), j'aime beaucoup !! C'est plein de douceur et de mouvement à la fois !

Jeg har aldrig læst silmarillion, så jeg kender ikke historien bag. Men virkelig flot billede, som altid kan man forelske sig helt i alle de små detaljer. Jeg opdagede først den lurende skygge i baggrunden efter noget tid - jeg kan ikke lade være med at tænke på hvem eller hvad det er!

Det er en meget god bog, du bør læse det c: Dett ligner meget de islandske sagaer.
Der er ikke så mange mennesker der har notat denne skygge ; alligevel er den meget vigtig!

Tusind tak! :hug:

C'est superbe ! Je ne connais pas grand chose à la mythologie de Tolkien, mais je trouve que ta scène rend bien l'atmosphère générale de ses livres. L'effet de perspective est un peu étrange avec l'arbre qui penche vers la droite, mais j'aime beaucoup les détails, l'épaisseur du trait (on dirait que tu as encré au pinceau ?) et les fleurs blanches qui ressortent bien. 
Les rehauts blancs sur le cheval, la cape et les cheveux de la demoiselle ont l'air de briller, c'est superbe !

Merci! :hug:
Oui moi aussi je le trouve un peu bizarre ce tronc qui penche, mais bon, comme d'habitude je m'en rends compte une fois que c'est encré! En effet, j'ai encré au pinceau, parce que ma plume avait quelques difficultés... ce qui était assez gênant sachant que tous mes stylos n'allaient plus...
Bref ce dessin est un peu bâclé, mais j'avais tellement hâte de boucler mon dessin hebdomadaire...

Je te recommande vivement le Silmarillion, le style s'apparente à une saga légendaire (dont Tolkien s'est plus que probablement inspiré) et de nombreux éléments évoquent la mythologie nordique.

Y'a pas de quoi :)
Ah, c'est le souci des outils d'encrage ! Quand rien ne va plus... Ceci dit, le pinceau rend très bien. C'est peut-être un peu moins fin que l'encrage à la plume ou au stylo, mais ça renforce bien les détails du personnage, je trouve. (en tout cas pour un dessin bâclé c'est visuellement très harmonieux !)

J'y penserais ! Je ne connais que quelques personnages de sa mythologie (Varda, Luthien et Beren, bref, rien de bien folichon) mais la description que tu m'en fais me fait assez envie. J'irais jeter un oeil en librairie :)
