It's me, Stridewing ^_- I said I'd comment, and I rarely go back on a promise.

Anywho, great artwork you have here, and I like how you've made your pictures look so good with paint. Being one who avoids paint as much as brocolli, I admire that you can use paint at all, let alone how they create an atmosphere.

Keep up the artwork and... I'll be back when you've done more ^_-

I don't know what poser or psp are, but trapped faerie is an excellent creation.

hydos... nice work... I really like it. your painting skills far surpass mine, which is why you won't find any paintings on any gallery page I'll ever post on, here or elsewhere... I suck at it... anyway, I'm wondering about your name... Elruwen... It's obvious to me, having studied Quenya, that it's Sindarin, even moreso since Tolkien himself prefered Sindarin in names for his characters. And I understand most of the elements of it... el- from elen meaning star... -wen from -wen meaning maiden or daughter of... I cannot however identify the element -ru-... so I am asking you to explain it to me, because it will keep me up at nights until I understand it... and if you're intending it to mean what's in the parentheses, lego- from lango- means of green and -las from lasse means leaf... so Legolas indeed means Greenleaf... but that's masculine... It may be Legolase?... I'm not extremely familiar with Sindarin genderal name endings... I'm also not trying to be a flamer... I'm just wondering

13 Adele L. Hawkes replies: "Yep, its certainly Sindarin thats the tongue I chose to learn because its very close in formation and pronounciation to the gaelic languages (esp Welsh) spoken here in the British Isles. Conerning the name Elruwen you have half of it right El- from the archaic sindarin ╩l meaning Star, Ru- from Rui (Rhui/Rhuiw) meaning hunt/hunting and -Wen the suffix indicating a feminine name. So the name Elruwen means in literal terms Star (of the) Hunt Maiden or as I have told others Maiden of the Star Hunt. I hope that you can get a good night's sleep now. Greenleaf isn't really a proper part of the the name it was added as a surname later on, in the elven form it would be Calenlasse - in keeping with Archaic Sindarin (Noldorin-ized Sindarin)as the character herself is half noldor in heritage. Her entire history can be found on www.councilofelrond.com under the characters section in the Role Play forums. I hope all that made sense."

Nice paintings, I see your in the navy, is that royal or merchant fleet? I'm in the royal as a 2/warfare off. Based in Devonport. Nice to see a Tolkien fan too, many of those at sea!
