'Of all the Great Ones who dwell in this world the Elves hold Varda most in reverence and love. Elbereth they name her, and they call upon her name out of the shadows of Middle-earth, and uplift it in song at the rising of the stars'
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion
There's something strange about the face, isn't it? The feeling won't go away but I can't see the problem D:
It isn't a good idea to paint beautiful characters if you are not capable of painting good faces. Well, I know, I should practice more instead of moaning about that ^^°
At least, this is just my idea how Varda could look like. I don't know if Tolkien ever writes which haircolour she has, I could only see that people around DA uses black or white. It seems that there's no discription.
First I wanted to paint white hair too, but now it's more ivory-coloured. The contrast would have been to hard if I had painted the hair brighter. I like it this way
Edit: changed some things now in the face. Hope it's better.
Big thanks to
, because she makes an overpaint for me
