Heya! Huge fan of your work! :)  Just wondering if you were planning on making a 2018 Silmarillion calendar?   I'd definitely buy one if it was available :) 
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2017  Professional Traditional Artist
Not Silmarillion specifically (that wouldn't be possible), but my 2018 calendar has some Tolkien-themed pieces in it:…

Following my work here is is probably not very satisfying, by the way - I haven't uploaded anything in about two years, and rarely come to check on comments. You can find me on Instagram (jennydolfen) or Facebook (TheArtofJennyDolfen)! And always on my blog. .

Holy wow... I looked up Maedhros (well I was looking for Maglor, but didn’t remember which was which) and stumbled across a billion of your stunning fanarts... Huge huge HUGE kudos to you for such fabulous art!!!
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Edited Nov 12, 2017  Professional Traditional Artist
Aw, thanks! I'm on a major Silmarillion spree again, though I've stopped posting to dA. Check out my blog if you'd like to see more - I have a new Feanor and Maedhros/Fingon scene in the works, too!

Just wanted to say that I love your art. I remember years ago, I saw how you drew Chainmail, and it really helped me grow as an artist. I hope you live a long and successful career as an artist, and that all your days are filled with joy <3

Als ich vor über 10 Jahren zum ersten mal durch DA zappte, warst du die erste, bei der ich hängen blieb! Nun hab ich mich aufgerappelt, endlich auch einen Account gemacht und kann dir endlich mal sagen wie wundervoll und ergreifend ich deine Bilder finde! Nach 10 Jahren hänge ich also immernoch bei dir rum und werde es auch ewig weiter! Heart 

Ich wünsche dir frohe Weihnachten! Hier für dich: Mein Weihnachts-Teddy-Knuddler Tight Hug

You've disabled comments on your artworks, but I just had to tell you how much I adore your piece 'A Sorrowful Meeting', of Finarfin and Galadriel being reunited! I've been looking for an illustration of them seeing each again for the first time after Galadriel left for Middle-Earth, and I was so happy to find one as beautiful as yours. It's absolutely wonderful, as is all of your art. I'm a big fan of your style!
Marlue Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm totally in love with your art.
Your paintings are incredible beautiful and inspiring. The way you use colours and paint details and how you capture the emotions of a scene with that is just breathtaking and makes me want to look through your gallery for the rest of the day.
Thank you for sharing your art :)

Lovely work!  I really enjoy what you make.

Amazing gallery :D
Harkale-Linai Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2016   Digital Artist
Your gallery is amazing! I enjoyed a lot looking at your work on Tolkien's characters, but your other watercolours are beautiful too ^^
I just read your tutorials, and they motivated me to do a bit of watercolour again. I fell in love with my tablet almost a year ago, but we're adults (at least, I'm pretty sure I am) and I never swore eternal fidelity to her, so it's not like I'm really unfaithful, right? :D

Anyway: keep up the great work!
Firehearted-Shinobi Featured By Owner May 16, 2016
Hey there! I just recently discovered your deviantart and youtube and your watercolors are just incredible! Your tutorials are also super clear and helpful, it's unbelievable. I was wondering, are there any particular colors that every beginner should have in their palette when beginning with watercolors? At least in your own experience?
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner May 18, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Hiya! Thanks for the kind words :) As absolute essentials, I would recommend one red, one blue, one yellow; and Sepia and Indigo to done down bright colours. You can really get by with these. Everything else can be mixed. Keep an eye out for two things: that the colours are light-fast, and transparent. Opaque watercolours can often look caked. 

My preferences for the three primary colours are Ultramarine (a cold, bright blue), Madder Red (a cold, deep red) and Indian Yellow (a bright, warm yellow going into Orange, but if applied with a lot of water, it's pure yellow). Others might recommend a warmer blue (Prussian or Cerulean) or a Cadmium red and yellow, Cadmium red being warmer than Madder. Some artists recommend having both a warm and a cold hue for the primary colours. 

You don't need black (mix it from Sepia and Indigo, maybe with a bit of red to push it towards purple) or white (you just use the white of the paper). 

Paints are fun - you'll find out what your own favourites are! 

Hope this helps!

I was just sent an article with your SW pics and i looked at them and was like "hold on, i know this style, this is gold-seven!!" XD So good to see your art after such a while..
lidsworth Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
omg its you! I have only ever seen your art on other websites like tumblr and wikipedia and google and could never find the real person. I love your Lotr/Silm art! It's amazing!
