Miriel and Finwë look as stupid as I always imagined them, not even pretty. “In the deepest Wildwood” is much more to my taste. Reply Oh, this is beautiful! It may replace the Thranduil portrait as my new favorite of your works. You have such a way of creating enchantment. Reply Beautiful creation. I love the detailing on the dresses. You really master the art to express emotion and atmosphere through colour. Reply This is m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s. However, Jenny: Wasn’t Miriel a brunette? We learn from the Silmarillion that she was completely different from Indis who had golden hair like the rest of the Vanyar. Her sons Fingolfin and Finarfin took after her unlike Feanor whom I’ve always seen portrayed with dark hair. What do you think? Reply Thank you! No; in “Morgoth’s Ring”, we learn that she was silver-haired. http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/M%C3%ADriel (Ignore the picture there in which she is indeed dark-haired – it’s one of mine but wrong) ;) Reply Thanks for letting me know. Your depiction of Miriel’s sliver hair is fantastic. Wonderful art! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
