Melian of the Silmarillion by AndrewRyanArt Melian of the Silmarillion by AndrewRyanArt
My version of Melian from the Silmarillion, I think she is Arwen's demi-god great great great grandmother. Though she herself is not an elf I gave her elven ears b/c she was married to one so she would probably have take on an elven form during her time in middle earth.
Melian also taught Galadriel how to bake lembas bread, or so I read.

Melian's eyes are very intense, it's almost scary. I would make them a little softer, but that's just me. And it's hard to get the light of Aman in Maiar's and Elves' faces. I love the contrast of the dark background and bright Melian. And I love that dress... that peachy color is beautiful, and the folds are amazing!

I would've expected something a little softer and more subtle from a former handmaid of the god of dreams, but I do like this. She's strong. You can believe she'd have the energy to keep her territory safe from Morgoth for decades or more.

Very beautiful. The eyes are very intense, maybe the one thing you could work on is making them less stitchy, more soft without losing the intensity. Know what i mean?
