Luthien Tinuviel by Veronnikka Luthien Tinuviel by Veronnikka
Lúthien Tinúviel, from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.

Finally! My first Tolkien fan art.:woohoo: Last year, I decided to learn watercolor just to do my favorite Tolkien illustration. I made a wish at that time that, ten years later, I hope I can have enough skills to realize my dream. Well, it's barely nine months...seems too easy? Huh... :shrug:
Don't know why I chose Lúthien to be my guinea pig (doesn't seem like a smart choice), but I really hope I've done her justice here.:P

Character © J.R.R. Tolkien

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

I really love this series!  All the different colors and faces and hairstyles...  It's quite brilliant!  My favorite thing is seeing a different kind of flower for each border.  I am an especially flower oriented person.

It totally breaths the atmosphere of The Silmarillian.

Oh, my God! I am SO in love with these vivid colors you used! Very spot-on. I love how hard you've worked on Luthien Tinuviel. She is outstanding! What types of art tools did you use? Making fluid, watercolor, and ink?

Thank you so much! I mostly used regular watercolors with a little bit of ink (the most saturated parts), but no masking fluid. I tend to not use masking media, so I painted around everything. You can check out this:[link] which was also done without any masking fluid.

Thanks to the liquid watercolors;) They have much more vibrant tones.
