The first chapter illustration for the LotR fanfiction story Captain my Captain, written by Isabeau of Greenlea. I'm a big fan of her writing (I recommend everyone reads it!), and I started the overly ambitious project of creating one illustration for each of the 52 chapters. It took me six months to get happy with this one, so its going to be a long time finishing : ) Hethlin, a girl in Faramir's ranger company, is shooting a nazgul, with Gandalf riding out in the background. Guache and watercolor pencil.
