Galadriel, from Lord of the Rings. Inspiration from Mucha. ^^

There is a song from the movie trilogy that has exactly the feeling I wanted this illustration to give, if you'd like a listen. Song 6.

Uuuuh. T__T If you have coloring advice for this piece, please give it. It's been "done" for maybe a week, and I've let it sit open on my computer, trying to figure out if I like this minimal coloring or not. Or maybe it's the border that makes me confused.

A re-mention from what I wrote on the line art ~ what deep thought went into this piece was limited to trying to figure out how to portray a person who is agelessly a maiden, but burdened with the knowledge of a hag. [Referring to the Greek literature thoughts on the course of a woman's life and person flowing through the three main phases of maiden, mother, and hag.] Toplessness is usually a reference to innocence ... while she pointedly looks away from the rising sun into shadow.

I've also posted the lineart and the rough drawing, if you're curious. XD Loool process art. The rough looks nothing like the final. ^^



ps. Not marking it mature this time. ^^; Because I really hope it isn't. Boobs shouldn't be mature unless they are tastelessly made that way.
