The Escape of Elwing

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Billy Mosig

Having lost all hope, Elwing throws herself into the sea. However, instead of dying, she is transformed into a white bird that flies away bearing the Silmaril she previously wore. The color of the cloak is that of blood, to emphasize the pain and her almost certain death. The drawing was made with pencils, and I used albanene paper for the clothes (I used red watercolour to dye the cloak) and gold leaf to paint the crown and necklace. I did the Silmarils by using simple tin foil.
