Gift for my dear
Because today she got married, and as my only wealth are my drawing skills, I present to you one virtual couple kiss!
Congradlations, my dear!
Those two are, as said, Finrod and Amarie from Tolkien world of Arda ( as designed here:
), reunited at last after centuries of seperation in which they never stopped loving each other. I imagine this would be a lot after happenings in Silmarillion, after which they can relax and finally marry and form a family. I really love how this one turned out, and while I wish I had few more days to do the more details, it's still good, I believe. I tried to do this one more colorfully than with my usual style, and it was rather unusual experience, but I hope you like it! <3
I would speak more of it, but I am still rather sick and I had been struggling to finish it despite it the whole day, so I am a bit short on describing things here, I fear, so I will try to be short, just noting few details; This is, for the ocassion, my first drawn kiss for few years, and on this work, I wanted to capture the feeling of their love and enjoyment of each other's presence, lying relaxedly on pile of pillows beside filreplace, reading ( guess which?
) book. The sketch passed through many ideas, progressing from forest scenery one to the room. I had chosen room because I wanted to add the fireplace and as well, a few more *easter eggs*. Everything here is drawn by me, you see, expect three things, three works made by Mirach, that I had chosen from her gallery, because I wanted to capture a bit of her in this work too:
( as a window, which was in same time her wedding invitation)
( as a fire in fireplace, because, well, who wouldn't like this cute flame? : )
( Finrod, the very character on the left of my picture, discovering first men travelling the woods. I really looked forward to including this one. I imagine either some Finrod's human friend, either Finrod himself, had draw this sweet piece of art to hang in a frame in his new home
