My Digital Art. Tauriel, a Silvan Elf of Mirkwood, is a character created for the upcoming films of The Hobbit. She is a warrior and the head of the Elven guard of Mirkwood. Evangeline Lilly will play Tauriel. WIP -
I know you meant for this to be Tauriel, but I didn't seen it when it was new, so in my mind I always see what Tauriel looked like in the films. I wanted to comment, though, because this is pretty much exactly what I always imagined Kili and Tauriel's daughter would look like!
I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want
Well I would mind if you use this image in your game, even more I will be glad. But I paint her as a Hobbit character Tauriel, so if it will be no problem with them, be my guest. And yes I want link on my webpage
Excellent work. My only problem with it is her weapons. How did she end up with the 'Bow of the Galadhrim' and matching quiver that Legolas recieves in the LOTR? Did you or have you seen the miniatur/toy version of Tauriel? She has her own bow and arrows with distinct style. If you do another piece like this one later, it would be great to see her with her own weapons.
Oh my, what a beautiful picture! I used to hate the very idea of an OC added to the movie, but this gorgeous art has just made me totally change my mind!.. Oh well, she and Kili might actually look rather cute together... *don't believe I've just said that!*
Oh, this is so gorgeous! I run a Tauriel fanpage on facebook; would you mind if I added this to our gallery, with proper credit of course? Actually I would love to use it as her profile picture for a bit, too!
Sweet work! And thanks for knowing how to draw bodices in 3/4 view; I'm tired of wincing at even a lot of pro artists who still can't remember to match the perspective to the body's shape instead of the viewer's eye. (Picky me!) This is spectaculr!
My one suggestion, if you happen to want one: The folds of her green shirt work perfectly everywhere except up by her nearer armor strap, where they're interrupted by those light lines parallel to the strap. I'm guessing those were either guidelines for shadowing or an experiment with how wide to make the straps, but they don't feel real like the rest of your textures and lighting.
If the shirt's folds are extending outward from the neck, I'd pull thise light lines and instead do the slightly fold-curved shadows you do by her waist. Or, if the light lines represent a seam for a separate shoulder flare, I'd both make sure those folds start below it, not through it, and that the other side shows the same radiating folds on the flare. (I hope this makes any sense; we just don't have a good vocabulary for things like this.)
In any case, wonderful work, both beautiful and strong. Thanks for posting it!
