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 Éowyn, 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

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! : )

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.

Beautiful :clap:

Again, my friend, thank you for the warm comment. Miranda Otto from the movies wasn't quite my Eowyn either, but I'm certainly glad you agree with this portrayal! :hug:

I like all your illustration.. but amongthem this caught my attention first.
Your artworks remind to me the Alan Leen illustrations, but I can also guess some influence from the Prerafaellites!!! That an amazing mix!
I also like how you can represent all in details without loosing the focus of the image!

Thanks very much, and apologies for the late reply. Yes, Alan Lee is definitely an inspiration (he's my favourite), as well as the pre-raphaelites. I'm actually quite flattered that you mention these two as being discernable in my work :blush:. Cheers!

As a really great fan of Eowyn I can't stop to be a little critique, hope you don't have nothing against it...I think she looks here a little older, I always imagine her as a 24-6 girl, but it's only my imagination...
Colours are very nice, background also rocks, her hair and clothes - very good work. So I'll fav it, because it's Eowyn - a person who I worship.

peet Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
Well, you can actually deduce from the Appendices that Eowyn is indeed 24 years old during the War of the Ring, so I can definitely see where you're coming from. I'm not sure I've drawn her much older than that age, but of course that's all down to personal interpretation. Thank you very much for all your comments and the devwatch. I appreciate it greatly. :)

Wow, this is gorgeous! I love your work, and Eowyn is my absolute favorite character in LOTR. I've always loved the books, and even though Miranda Otto did a fantastic job... this is kind of more of what I pictured Eowyn to look like when I didn't have movies to go by. Terrific job, and a :+fav: on my part. ^_^
