Прямо иллюстрация к "Детям Хурина":
...как вдруг отрадный воспарил напев,  
сладостный глас над люда говором  
к сумеречным сводам возносил мелодию  
и, звонким эхом высеченные в камне арки  
захлестнув, трепетал, нежный и тихий,  
привета и встречи слова сплетая, -  
о них уставшие от тягот пути молили,  
с тех пор как невзгоды гномы познали и скитанья.  
И утихли толпы; не оборотился ни единый,  
издревле знаком был и люб тот вознесшийся глас.  
И узнал его Флиндинг, у ног короля,  
словно изваян из камня, безмолвно застыв  
с сердцем тяжелым; наследник же Хурина  
был изумлен и подвигнут на тоскливую думу,  
и, всматриваясь в тень, в коей скрывался трон,  
престол властительный, трижды уловил он  
мерцание, проблеск, как от покровов белых.  
То была хрупкая Финдуилас, стройная и быстрая,  
что, прелестью чаруя, в зрелость вступила  
и расцвела славно, - она слово привета  
вознесла, милосердная, и уснул гнев.

I remember how I saw your first picture of Finduilas and just thought "This is how an elf is supposed to look like". You really nail the "eternal beauty" of these characters and what is more, you only get better!

Beautiful is not an expressive enough word to describe this, ethereal or angelic maybe fits it more... but honestly i am so amazed by the standard of your art it is impeccable.

Не сколько поразила сама принцесса, сколько витражи, такие они прямо вкусные, сразу притягивают взгляд, вот это сине-зеленый и редкие  вкрапления желтого
свет в руках и как он светит на руки, очень красиво, вообще наверно он больше всего привлек...
В этом свете Турин мужчина странный)

:iconekukanova:
EKukanova Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2017
Турин мужчина вообще странный))  давно витражи не рисовала, хотя очень их люблю, работа сразу декоративно с ними смотрится. И красить их очень в кайф, самыми яркими цветами и прямо из банки, не смешивая)    А Финдуилас- самая нормальная принцесса, без воинственных замашек, в башне, надо спасать от драконов, искушённую публику поражать особо нечему)

Ужасно трагичная и страшная судьба у самой нормальной принцессы в этом наверно весь парадокс...
Вообще дети Хурина у меня одна из любимых историй, потому что зло в ней как и в жизни уверенно побеждает...
Еще один золотоволосый шедевр в копилку третьего дома)

Finduilas doesn't get a lot of art, and this is the most beautiful painting of her I have ever seen! And the Nargothrond background, the light coming in through the window, is just brilliant! Since her other name means "the gleam of the sun on the pools of Ivrin" the light is very fitting for her.

Thank you very much! :hug:  I decided to draw all the Third House, so this is the time for Finduilas))  in the colors of the stained glass window I put a favorite colors of Finrod (how I imaginate it)), whos youth was in Alqualonde, also those colors must be aligned to Nauglamir and the ring of Barahir=)

The Third House is my favourite House, so I have been truly enjoying all the art you've created of the golden-haired ones!! Love The colours you have chosen as Finrod's favourites are gorgeous and I love the idea that they are the colours of his mother's people. Oooh, of course, that green is the emerald colour of the Ring of Barahir! Perfect. Clap
