This is Varda from The Silmarillion. Elbereth is her elvish name and she is the Lady of the Stars. The elves hold her in reverance and love. She is supposed to be a great beauty, I'm afraid I didn't do her justice...but I still like her. I love Tolkien's work, and I wanted to portray some of his characters. Sadly, I was only checking the book out from the library, so I have yet to get a copy and finish it. This is my best attempt at realism so far. I had so much trouble with coming up with an outfit that I thought she might wear. As well as a hairstyle >< She has buns and then long loose hair. In between her hands is supposed to be a star, or a light similar to a star...although I'm not very good at drawing light yet. And if you can't tell...this is unfinished. I wanted to watercolor it, because I thought that would be good since I wanted to show her with a kind of glow (light of Ilúvatar). However, I seem to have lost my watercolor paper and some of my watercolors. So, now I'm going to try a colored pencil version and hope that works.
