Illustration for the Children of Hurin by Tolkien
gouache, vatercolour and colored pensils on paper
I just finished reading the Children of Hurin, so it was wonderful to get to look through your beautiful illustrations of the book, is this the scene then Melian is giving out the Llembas? I love her hairstyle and her face; her beauty looks so otherworldly! And the dress is spectacular, may I ask how you managed to give it such a magical shine?
And this is just a painting, none of tricks)
Where was all of those published? I want to buy the book!
Yes, thats lembas in her hands; as for her dress,- I love very much oriental textiles and often taking an inspiration there
Wonderful approach .
