I did this pic (without the background) as a cover illustration for Angerthas, the magazine of Arthedain, the Tolkien Society of Norway. I don't know yet if they're going to use it, I'll just have to wait and see...(Wohooo! They used it!)
Since the picture was to be used as a Tolkien-illustration, I figured out that the Angerthas-version could represent Elbereth, the Lady of the Stars, but I'm not sure if it really is her *lol*? Could anyone tell me who she is!?
In a dream I was lifted up.
Borne from the darkness.
Above the rivers of fire.
On wings doft as the wind.
What's happened to the world?
Is everything sad going to come untrue?
