The Mirror of Galadriel by DappleHack The Mirror of Galadriel by DappleHack
"Then she let her hand fall, and the light faded, and suddenly she laughed again, and lo! she was shrunken: a slender elf-woman, clad in simple white, whose gentle voice was soft and sad."

J.R.R.Tolkien, FOTR

She is so lovely - one of the best Galadriel's portrait I've seen. I think that she is one of most difficult charachters to portrait becouse in all my fan life :) I've seen many really terrible portraits of her. I think that Galadriel, Arwen, Gimli and hobbits are most difficult to portrait in any technique, becouse I've seen very little good portraits of them. Most of those pictures were terrible or at least nice but notheing special. Galadriel,
Arwen, Gimli and hobbits are very problematic persons to draw - there are so many bad pictures about them. But this one is very nice and I'd like to see such as this one in some LOTR deluxe edition.

I agree, that there aren't many good pictures of Galadriel... And here - in exception - I really did make a link to Ancient Greec appearence :) To my inner thoughts, the house of Finarfin fits the Ancient Greek type of beauty - to my mind. Especially Galadriel.

Thank you.
I always imagined Galadriel as a strong person not only in spirit but also in body (and we know that from her Aman history), so I'm far from drawing her as a feeble anorexic woman 8-)) Many people has disagreed with tat :)
