Arwen Undomiel by thewholehorizon Arwen Undomiel by thewholehorizon
Lots of votes in for Lord of the Rings so I decided to give Arwen (Liv Tyler) a try. Honestly there's very few hi-res photos of her in character the reference I used for this was so degraded that I had to digitally repaint it to give me clearer lines I could outline and draw. And ho-ly-cow that took forever!

The lighting in this one reminds me of my second-to-last Hermione that was so popular, I know this is pretty small and not very detailed (blame it on the source! plus I wanted to zoom out to get more hair and my pencils can only get so sharp on textured paper! "why don't you just use smoother paper then?" shush!) but here's hoping it gets some good reception. I apologize for the fact that it's remarkably similar to my rendition of Belle.

5.5 x 8.5"

Charcoal Pencils HB, 2B, 6B
Charcoal Stick
Tortillon
Kneaded Eraser
White Gel Pen
Black Fine-Tip Sharpie (don't ask)
Razor (don't ask either)

Drawing Time: 3 hours-ish + at least 4 hours repainting the reference first
