This is an illustration I've done for a Chinese Tolkien fanbook 'Memories of the Travellers". We have sent it to John Howe as a gift when he came to China. I'm so excited!

A sculpture in the water. May be Luthien? :P

Such delicate flowing elven beauty. All your elf drawings have this wonderful quality. It was hard to chose which on to fave. I love the magical moonlit feel to this.

This is cool - I love how the focus is on the sculpture and you only see the elves in the background later on.

And...I guess she could be Luthien, but this also makes me think of the Valar (probably because the sculpture reminds me of Classical Greek statues of their gods)

I'm totally just repeating what everyone else said, but this is beautiful! It really is. You've got such a lovely style! It's sort of got a soft look to it, but just because of the tones. None of the detail is lost at all- it's really sharp up close.

Very Nice! I like the classical look of the statue, and how it appears to be caressing the larger tree branch while the smaller branch clings to the statue like a child clinging to it's mother.

I love the mood you created here. The high key monochrome with the green tint give it such a serene feel. I also love the detailed statue juxtaposed with the hint of Arwen and Aragorn in the background. Lovely work. I've always been a fan of Tolkien myself (hence the name). Keep it up. ;)
