I just noticed I linked your image to some net pals and praised her then but haven't comment here at all. I find your vision of Nerdanel the closest to the wise, strong woman she is described to be. Noble, strong, beautiful but not in a sweet, pretty, cute way. And I love her hair and clothes, but that is great part of all of your artworks. Really, my fav Nerdanel of all renderings I've seen. Once I started my own image of her but now I am not sure I would still like it if I ever got back to that one.

Nerdanel - an amazing woman. Strong, noble and wise. For me - probably the most vivid image of the book. I love her very much, and when I draw it, i thinking about her, imagined and tried to feel ... her emotions, her thoughts ...
You have a very interesting and powerful style of drawing. I would to see your Neri somewhen.)

I will make a portrait of her one day! For now a woman on a sketch I started in 2008 or something looks too weak, characterless compared to yours :)

Это... черт, не знаю, как выразить одним словом) великолепная женщина! величественная и прекрасная - именно не красивая, а прекрасная. Немного кельтская леди (впрочем, куда деться с Профессором от кельтских корней?))
Спасибо снова и снова за ваши чудесные визуализации *flower*

Очень рад, что понравилось.)
сам вижу тут помесь романики, раннего возрождения, модерна и бреда меня.) Вообще, долго пытался подобрать то, что подошло бы именно ей, в итоге оказалось так.)А вообще у меня Кельтика действительно ассоциируется с медью и червонным золотом, так что невольно очень может даже быть.) :blushes::aww:

Без бреда себя - какое же творчество? )) и видимо наши бреды несколько пересекаются)))

Так ведь все правильно: кельты - народ красной культуры, так что алый цвет и червонное золото - самое оно)

Mostly you are right. But Fëanor was king of the Noldor for a short time anyway, and I guess that would make Nerdanel queen!

Regardless, she looks like one! :D

When Feanor became king, they are unfortunately very short stay together...

Very impressive work. I really like the woodcut-like texture. And the clothing design. And the frame. And Nerdanel's proud expression. And OMG her hair! And... everything, really!

This is a beautiful piece! I love the fact that you inspired yourself from the renaissance dress style in her outfit (the puffy sleaves) mixed with a medieval feel to it. I always found that this more elaborated trend fitted the Noldor perfectly.

Righon Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you.= )) It seems to me that the Noldor and clothing should be such where they could to show their skills. In particular jeweler. But do not be too pretentious and unwieldy. Such a combination seemed appropriate. ))

I definitly agree ^^ They loved to wrok precious metals, it would seem normal that they should use their crafts to adorn their clothing :) And it was nice to see a beautiful Nerdanel like this! It's difficult to find portrayals of her out there

Generally, I like the Noldor more than other elves. For many things, but to a large extent - for their creativity.

This is lovely. I love how you did her hair, and the dress is wonderful. Now, I'm going to sit here and try and figure out how I would make this dress in real life..

I think the hardest part about it is the decorative trim ...not cut dresses... Although, the sleeves...

WOW. The linework on this is just SUPERB. I am in awe. :worship: It reminds me a lot of Albrecht Durer's woodcut pieces, though Nerdanel has a much more beautiful face and figure than more of his pieces. :XD: Actually, it looks ike a combination between a woodcut and Art nouveau. :D Must say with all honesty that this is the best Nerdanel I've ever seen. :nod:
