Absolutely gorgeous. I particularly love the look of adoration on Beren's face. The moment is captured perfectly.

I just love the technique :D Maybe markers don't sound so impressive to some, but for me watercolour is actually easier because you can avoid/cover up mistakes and you have more control over color. With markers, you have to have an extremely good idea of the final image, I think. So I'm doubly impressed! Beautiful, beautiful work, as usual :)

Watercolours are great because they blend easily and mistakes are removable when still wet. And OTOH, markers are great because they *don't* blend too easily ( :) ) and don't drip. I had a phase when I did all my works in markers, but now I've gotten used to watercolour again...

This is magical! I love how your illustrations have the right atmosphere. This looks very..poetical, just like it should be to describe a story from Silmarillion. For the contrary, your works depicting Shire are always have that comfortable Shire touch, everything rich, but homely.

Thank you so very much! I do put a lot of thought on how I want to depict different stories and scenes - though often I'm uncertain how I succeeded - so it is just wonderful to get feedback like this. :love:

Dear Deviant :wave:,
I hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you are. Okay, I am not here to just greet you and talk about nonsense things, I have come to comment on your deviation. First I like how much detail this picture has. The storybook quality that the picture is also very nice. I have never seen or heard of white ink so I can not say if you used that to your advantage for this piece or not. Either way, hope you continue to have a wonderful day and this small letter/comment makes you smile.
Keep up the great work,
No-Name-Girl :wave:

Hello and thank you for the comment! :D I'm glad you liked the piece! What I meant by white ink is just a permanent white marker/liner, basically. :)
