Varda Elentári

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Varda Elentári, aka Elbereth, Queen of the Stars. She is standing on top of Taniquetil with clouds at her feet, touching a star. I can't make up my mind about this picture; it is my first try at drawing one of the Valar. I generally go for the rich color and high contrast look, which is in this picture, but I didn't want to make it look as earthbound, humanlike, or what have you as my elf portraits. I wanted it to sparkle and look otherworldly, but I think I might have overdone the hair and 'under-done' the face. Still, since it's the first picture of this type I've been brave enough to try, here it is.
