Galadriel by thewholehorizon Galadriel by thewholehorizon
Took forever frankensteining a picture of normal Cate Blanchett's face onto a different poster with Galadriel, then the drawing itself took the entirety of the first two Lord of the Rings films playing in the background (though I always have to pause to mourn Haldir's passing :'( ). It was impossible to find a good picture of Galadriel as-is, you would think such an incredible movie franchise would be able to provide more photo-shoot material but NO. I've had the same problem with wanting to draw Legolas, Arwen, and the new Bilbo *sigh*

At least courtesy of The Hobbit there was a good poster of her this time (regardless of the fact she's not even in the book) it was just really creepy lighting on the face hence me finding a different photo to use for that part. The shading isn't quite right so OCD will probably get the best of me and make me go back and fix it eventually (like I finally did with one of my Jennifer Lawrence pictures--3 strands of hair were bothering me haha) but I think this'll do for now :)
