This came out so stunningly! <33 Wow!!
I love how you explore the depths of the world of Tolkien, not just the typical LOTR (which I do love nonetheless~)

Очень нравится! Мне кажется, на законченном рисунке у нее не такой напряженный взгляд. Ну и я всегда радуюсь, когда дети похожи на родителей на рисунках)))

Спасибо!^^   Над лицом ещё поработала с тех пор,  к сходству с Мелиан тут совсем не стремилась, получилось само собой), видимо сработал момент  личного представления о красоте))

As always a marvel to behold new Tolkien creations coming through the eyes of your thought and brought forth for all to see by your very gifted hands. 

Others have covered some things, but one thing I found striking to me are the eyes of Huan: filled with thought, or reflecting that expression of looking ahead in his mind of the events that would follow - glimpses of foresight. And in general he looks so very realistic, it is as if I am looking at a real photograph of a wolfhound and not a drawing.

Truly well done once more Elena. *bows head*

I like Huan's impressive presence and Luthien's determined eyes in this picture: they are indeed a team that works miracles

fine, fine work Elena, you keep getting better all the time!

Both characters are superb, but Huan is the standout here for me; for one, you actually made him look like a wolfhound (not too many tolkien artists do :) ) and giving him a coat of pure shining white really gives him that "sacred animal" feel like you'd expect from a creature of legend, he could be Culann's hound from the Ulster Cycle.

just terrific, well worth the wait :D

Thank you very much, Turner!^^
I reflected a lot how Huan must look like, and decided that Irish wolfhound is a most appropriate breed here; not the breeds close for wolf, because the wolf is Sauron))     And when I draw him  I remembered as well of animals from Celtic legends :D

I love the earthy tones. Huan looks so huggable but viscous if he has to be.

We artists always draw our own hands, don't we? :)

Gorgeous as always.  I love her eyes.  And I love the little touches of gold in the leaves.  Nicely done.

Though I can't help but worry that Huan is going to slobber on her! :)

The pose reference for this piece was by me, so I couldn't make anything with hands))    And Huan is maybe sacred but an animal))

Лютиээээн, Эрушки, какая прекрасная, я просто не могу. в завершённом варианте ещё нежнее стала :ззз а листья, наверное, стоили титанического труда..

Лицо ещё дорабатывала,  ну и листьев хватило на все те долгие зимние вечера, когда сил не оставалось на что-то более интелектуальное))
а в вк наверное будет всё то, чем стараюсь не перегружать DA..)
