Celebrian by Veronnikka Celebrian by Veronnikka
Finally got this scanned.:faint: Celebrían, daughter of Galadriel and mother of Arwen.:) Another character that's never portrayed in any movie, but there are bits of descrptions about her in the book.
I painted her sad-faced because of what happened to her...:( (Not very satisfied with the final effect though; lots of hues were lost during scanning. I miss the scanner at my school so much.)

Character © J.R.R. Tolkien

------------------------------

Watercolor and ink on Fabriano cold pressed paper, 9"*12".

There's something about the way you drew her that reminds me a little of Leonardo da Vinci.  
Which is awesome, because it adds such a classic look to this lovely character.

Oh thank you! Da Vinci, really? Such a shame that I'm actually not very familiar with his style at all...^^;

This is only one example of what comes to mind.  
(Hope the link works, the painting I'm thinking of is a detail from "Madonna in the Rock Grottos".)

Anyway, your painting is super amazing!

Her hair looks truly silver! And I've got a sentiment for Celebrian (as may be seen by my dA name ;-) )

Thank you! Silver hair is tricky indeed, as it can easily look like plain white hair.

I just read about her and I understood that Galadriel was Arwen's grandmother! Very beautiful painting and lovely colours :aww:

What a wonderful Celebrian! One of the best I've seen. She's nobel and beautiful as befitting her, and her expression is good. This is probably how she looked before she decided to sail.

Very pretty! I like how you drew Celebrķan's hair and eyes (pensive!), and also the fair skin. And a special fave from me for her nose being a normal size, I'm tired of all those super-miniature noses on drawings of Elves. ;)
There's something about how the jawline is connected to the ear that doesn't sit well with me, but apart from that, great job. Your Celebrķan looks noble, just the way I always imagined her.

Thank you very much! Yes, I meant to do a series of realistic portraits, so no tiny pointed noses or 6-inches long ears! :D

As for the jawline, you're right, there shouldn't be that hard line. I was going to soften it, but then forgot...^^;

I really like this! I think the colors look just fantastic, but I can understand your pain too. Some scanners are unfriendly:(
Anyway, I think you portrayed Celebrian very beautifully! I love how you did her hair, I think the frame with the flowers is really pretty and nice, and I'm very fond of the texture of the background as well:)

This is beautiful! Even with the mess up of the scanner anyone can tell you have great skills. Your work here is beautiful, your lines are very graceful, and the movement of the art piece really expresses her emotion. Great job.
