Gorgeous lighting on the dress! The hands and faces are just perfect! What is that in her hand? Lembas?
Where was all of those published? I want to buy the book!

Thank you for your words , dear friend!
I'd be totally glad if my works could be included in Tolkien's books. I've been offering my illustrations to a couple of British publishers and I think of offering them to Russian and American publishers this year.
Yes, thats lembas in her hands;  as for her dress,- I love very much oriental  textiles and often taking an inspiration there :)

They will be idiots if they do not publish it on major books. I love it all. You deserve that, I will be wishing you the best here!

You feel in your drawings  the medieval occidental style of life , legends and perhaps psychology .
Wonderful approach .

I admire the touch of mischief you have added to the otherworldly air of your Melian, Ms Kukanova; if it were not for the fact that this is an image from 'The Children of Hurin' I would almost think she were about to have that little chat with The Lady Galadriel about the forthcoming visit from a certain Son of Beor (due to arrive sometime in the next … oh, Century or so).
