This is stunning! I love the colors and style: mixed media for this is awesome.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I love mixing media - each has its own strengths and they can really play off each other.

I love the colors, and the contrast! Arien looks so powerful. 



Author's Response:

Thank you! I'm glad she looks powerful - I really wanted to translate the way Tolkien described her being strong and independent. :D

I cannot believe this painting! It is amazing! So absolutely gorgeous. The warm and cool colors, the resonnance of those qualities in the figures. I'm babbling because I am speechless. You really must be so pleased with yourself and proud of this!

Wow!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much!! <3 I had a lot of fun doing this and playing up the differences in the two of them. (also always fun to make the woman the strong one!)

I love the poses you've chosen for these two: Arien completely composed and in control, and Tilion tumbling - in a very graceful manner, but tumbling nonetheless - beneath her. Flowy draperies are one of my soft spots in art anyway. The gold and silver add an iconic touch.

Like Binka, I feel reminded of something ancient - Tirion's posture has kicked awake a memory of Minoan bull leaping, I think - which is nicely evocative. Awesome work on so many levels!

Author's Response:

Oh man, your comment makes me happy. I really wanted to convey something about each of them with the way they hold their bodies and how they are oriented towards each other, so it's great to see you saw that too. :D (Flowy drapery is awesome! Though always a pain to draw I feel...)

Like I said to Binka, I kinda want to see this on a giant Greek vase now! :D

It's strange... Am I looking at an ancient vase, with paintings that depict Greek gods? This has such a feeling. And yet it's distinctly yours, with a touch of African inspiration, plus the awesome technique. And the gold!

Absolutely gorgeous! I bow before your talent.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much! Now I kinda want to see this on a vase... A giant one!!

As you know, I was most excited about seeing this particular prompt done in art ... especially art done by you! :) And it does not disappoint. Your imagining of both Arien and Tilion but especially Arien is simply marvelous. And gold leaf! Yay! ^_^



Author's Response:

I'm so glad it lived up to your expectations!! :D I had fun making it for sure, even with gold leaf stuck all over my hands. <3
