Yavanna, colored by ullakko Yavanna, colored by ullakko
I didn't want to risk the original so I printed out a smaller version of it and colored with markers. A bit of highlight and such added in photoshop.

LINEART HERE: [link]

Yavanna Kementįri from Tolkien's Silmarillion.
Ink drawing.

From The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien:
"The spouse of Aulė is Yavanna, the Giver of Fruits. She is the lover of all things that grow in the earth, and all their countless forms she holds in her mind, from the trees like towers in forests long ago to the moss upon stones or the small and secret things in the mould. In reverence Yavanna is next to Varda among the Queens of the Valar. In the form of a woman she is tall, and robed in green; but at times she takes other shapes. Some there are who have seen her standing like a tree under heaven, crowned with the Sun; and from all its branches there spilled a golden dew upon the barren earth, and it grew green with corn; but the roots of the tree were in the waters of Ulmo, and the winds of Manwė spoke in its leaves. Kementįri, Queen of the Earth, she is surnamed in the Eldarin tongue."

An absolutely beautiful take on one of Tolkien's wondrous characters. I love the way the benches extend from her like arms and the trunk wraps around to become her. :D
