In my opinion this looks just like Aredhel. :) I really like her here and her hair is wonderful. There are lots of pictures of her with straight hair, but I usually draw her with curly hair, too.

Hmm. Your always-beautiful work, but for once I'm not reading the gender of one of your pictures correctly. Before I read the caption, I almost sent you a note--the same one I almost sent you when you first posted this--saying that the lips were too feminine for a man's face.

I'm still trying to figure out what _makes_ it look masculine, even now that I'm reminded it's Aredhel, but I think it's not a single feature but the interplay between the long nose, the wide jaw, and the generally rectangular shape of the face.

It's certainly not a problem with most of your female portraits (even Joan of Arc and your other Aredhel pic); just something about this particular one.

Regretfully,

Yes, I noticed that too - it wasn't as strong in the sketch, but was accentuated by this one hard water line at her jaw and the dark, strong eyebrows. It's one of the reasons why I've put both pics in scraps. Those two were the first images after a month-long abstinence from drawing, and it shows.

I certainly don't see any problems with the Fingon, myself.

I can't get over how beautiful her eyes look. :heart: Elvish eyes in all their glory.

Good portraits with beautiful lighting, and your pencil sketches are wonderful, as usual. Maybe Fingon's ear is a shade on the short side?

The slightly random hug is from Em; she likes Aredhel, but she likes Fingon more.

She looks great! Are you planning to do portraits of her husband and son, too?

You may have to forgive me for saying this, but she reminds me of Lyanna Stark...
