Tinuviel! Tinuviel! by woutart Tinuviel! Tinuviel! by woutart
Tinúviel! Tinúviel! Long have you been in the making! Many have gone before and many will be after. But lo! Finally I managed to capture her in colour :D

Had a week off from work and my family and me whent on a mini holiday to a forested area. Took some photographs which then inspired me to make this one.

Photoshop CS5.1, Wacom Intuos3 A5 wide, approx. 9 hrs

Inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's Lúthien Tinúviel from the Silmarillion.

*pauses, looks around for Beren*

ehn, guess he's not here. I love your forests, they're just so... I dunno. It's hard to say. Rich? Intricate? Realistic in a surreal way? (and yes, I realize that that is an oxymoron).

Looks fantastic.
(The absolute minor, little, tiny issue would be the skin tone. It looks a bit too red among all the greens in the surrounding to my photographer's eye. )

Danke Oliver :)

Yes you are right. I find good skin tones hard to reproduce. It should be influenced by the surroundings offcourse. Thanks for being honest :thumbsup:

Great depiction. It's always nice to see new depictions of Luthien. I really hope the Silmarillion never gets turned into movies or a TV series.

Well that, and there is the fact that when movies are made out of the books then it is the death of original art because everyone just copies what was in the movies.

True, there's definitely a lack of original views these days, because of that fact. I too find it hard sometimes to remember what I thought everything looked like before the movies came out.

Hm. What if you went back and re-read the books? Actually you might be able to do an impressionistic rendering of the characters. Maybe just think about their attributes and give them suitable forms based on how you think they should look.

I love the sense of youth and vitality you portray Tinuviel with. The hazy, greyer background makes it seem as if she herself is bringing color and life to the world around her.

Thanks, glad it come across. She's supposed to have flowers spring up at her feet, but to accentuate that seemed a bit too corny ;)
