Eowyn by peet Eowyn by peet
'The woman turned and went slowly into the house. As she passed the doors she turned and looked back. Grave and thoughtful was her glance, as she looked on the king with cool pity in her eyes. Very fair was her face, and her long hair was like a river of gold. Slender and tall she was in her white robe girt with silver; but strong she seemed and stern as steel, a daughter of kings. Thus Aragorn for the first time in the full light of day beheld É owyn, Lady of Rohan, and thought her fair, fair and cold, like a morning of pale spring that is not yet come to womanhood. And she now was suddenly aware of him: tall heir of kings, wise with many winters, greycloaked, hiding a power that yet she felt. For a moment still as stone she stood, then turning swiftly she was gone.'

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Book III, Chapter 6: The King of the Golden Hall

Great style, and much more like the book than film Eowyn!

This is one of the best depictions I've seen of her yet. Her facial expression is perfect, and the piece certainly matches the passage from the book. Well done. Cheers! : )

Beautiful, and very her. Not to criticize the movie or anything, but rather more of what I imagined.
Acrylic?

You can criticize the movie all you like ;-). Watercolour, in fact. Thanks very much for the comment!

I truly love Eowyn, when I first read the books at the age of 12 I loved her... sometimes my wish to be as strong as her kept me from falling into depression... so, yeah. I have sweet memories of her. The drawing is beautiful.
