Galadriel by Gold-Seven Galadriel by Gold-Seven
Galadriel in her youth, with her hair braided up in a crown that gave her her name: maiden crowned by light.

Done in my sketchbook, pencil and white pencil on pastel paper.

Nice drawing but, it's hard to accept Galadriel without long hair.

Tolkien described her that way in her youth.

Enchanting. She looks just like an Elf should--beautiful yet pensive, with an aura of eternity. The eyes are wonderful. Galadriel really did see it all, just about, even if she didn't play a huge part until the Second and Third Ages...

I like how the ears seem natural, as opposed to the usual way people do elven ears.

I agree, I always think that the long ones look like they might be caught in a tripwire... or something like that. :) Leaf shaped ears are pretty but they shouldn't be so long that they become unpractical.

She's famous for her white raiments and fabled hair, but I do like that people draw her with different hairstyle and clothes. She -possibly- couldn't have spend thousands of years with same kind of hair and wardrobe with no change at all. ;)

And this hairstyle was even described by Tolkien. ;)

I love how the pastel paper give it an ancient look of the masters. Great job.
