Silmarillion: Idril by LadyElleth Silmarillion: Idril by LadyElleth
Idril Celebrindal of Gondolin, daughter of King Turgon, wife of Tuor, mother of Eärendil. She is said to have great wisdom and foresight, and was aware that something was rotten in the vale of Gondolin long before Morgoth launched his attack on the city. The cornflower features prominently in her device. The eagles were the guardians of Gondolin, and an eagle was later made the emblem of the Gondolindrim.

This is really stunning. I love the atmosphere, beautiful texture and ethereal quality about it. Thanks so much for using my stock! I thought no one would ever use my castle pictures. I'm so glad you found them useful. :)

Thank you so much for the comment, and I'm very happy you like it. :) The castle stock was very useful indeed, if not for your pack this would have ended as yet another eternally unfinished project on my harddrive.

Again, thank you. :) The painted effect mainly happens through the use of textures, and more textures ;), but then you probably know that already.

I just love it. The flower is a really nice touch, and the lighting is awesome. I'm not just favoriting because is a Tolkien's work from one of my favorite artists in DA, the work itself is worthy. (flattering points: 1000 :D)

Abrazo!
