Finduilas by Veronnikka Finduilas by Veronnikka
Here's Finduilas, daughter of Orodreth. Is she Gil-Galad's sister in some version? :O_o:  I'd come up with her design a long time ago and it has never changed since for some reason, although she is a minor character.  Yet again, this piece took me too long to finish – I started the sketch back in late December.  Went back and forth with her hair for I was being unnecessarily cautious... Anyways it's done now so I can move on. :D

Character © J.R.R. Tolkien

I love everything about this one. the vibrant colors and the whimsy of the daisy's make you over the shoulder gaze somehow playful. it defiantly stands out!

Well...then it would sound a bit weird if what I had in my head while painting is her death scene – impaled to a tree. (All right that's morbid...:P)

Anyways, I'm glad you like it!

I also like edger allen poe (smirk) and can see the right pose being quite artful. the whole series is quite lovely and interesting for Tolkien fans. do you plan to make all the ladies of Tolkien, loved and tragic both?

This series I'm working on right now is Elves only (well, some are not 100% Elves, but still), and I'm almost done with it – only one more left.  I know there're more female Elves mentioned, but I'm sticking with the more recognized ones.  I might start another series for the others...who knows! :D

Yes, Christopher Tolkien found some additional material after Silmarillion and then admitted that he had made some editorial mistakes in the family tree. According to the new family tree Finduilas is daughter of Orodreth, sister of Gil-Galad and granddaughter of Angrod. Here's the family tree where JRR supposedly ended up to in his mind: elaini-the-mystic.deviantart.c…

Thank you! Yes, I looked it up and found multiple versions of the family tree, including Orodreth being son of Finarfin, and Gil-Galad somehow ending up in the House of Fingolfin...:faint:

He rewrote a lot of things. :) I guess Christopher has the best ideas of what the last versions are.
