Melian by ekukanova Melian by ekukanova
A sketch for an illustration series for ''Children of Hurin''

I guess, I have to add, that drawing Melian, I've been trying to achieve a certain resemblance with images of Tara.
It might be a blasphemy for a Tolkien lover, but that's how I understand her character:)

Its wonderful, how she looks so wise, so tranquil, and ever benevolent. And her hairstyle and jewels are all awesome!

I love how you've drawn her! She looks like a medieval Madonna... even more otherworldly (but less off-putting) than the elves in the LOTR movie.

Exquisite. I am just discovering your art. Never seen such thing in all things Tolkien - and I have seen a lot. Your work depicts elves and maiars (esp. the women though tour Thingol is of a quite touching nobility) as I've always felt they should be. Unearthly beautiful, yet kind, silent and wise. I am really thankful for this.
