Ithilien by ellaine Ithilien by ellaine
An arrow of freedom
Is piercing my heart
Breaking chains of emotion
Given a moment to pray
Lost innocence to find its way

Feelings of sensation
A cry in the dark
Hope is on the horizon
With a reason to stay
And living for a brand new day

In morning dew,
a glorious scene came through,
like war is over now
I feel I'm coming home again

The moments unfold
In the meaning of love
This war is over now
I feel I'm coming home again

Sarah Brightman - The war is over

I wanted to finish this picture before my work starts again on Monday, so I will be busy again.
I'm aware of the fact that it is full of errors, but please, don't point them out, I know them already. I have spent some hours on fixing them and I'm not able to do it and I don't want to hear or think about them any more xp. I have almost threw it out, but then coloured it though for my friends Nivak and maudt who wanted to see it finished. Thank you girls for help and listening to my whining :hug:

Hope you will enjoy the colouring at least^^

oh.... a softly smiling Faramir... he's more like what I saw in my mind reading Tolkien for the first time like thirty years ago. :) (Smile) 
Eowyn does not really fit the bill for me:| (Blank Stare) , but the great Professor never described her as extensively as he did othersNo, I disagree! ....
Still, it's a beautifull picture.Nod

This is beautiful! If there are mistakes that lovely coloring and the melting into the background fixed them certainly. The couple looks beautiful, and very much as I envisioned them. Eowyn looks weary, still haunted by her old demons, but Faramir looks totally healed and ready to chase them away.

As far as I know and the books say, Faramir was no Elf, but a human being (even if descendant from the old race of Numenore), but well... :D

Oh it was Faramir!!! How stupid of me. He looks so noble and elven nonetheless. :)

You're right, he's a human, but also a little bit elvish :)

Imrazôr the Númenórean and the Elven-lady Mithrellas, one of Nimrodel's Silvan companions, married and founded the line of the Princes of Dol Amroth around the year 2000 (3rd Age).

Finuilas, the mother of Faramir and Boromir was from this line. ALso Morwen of Lossarnach, mother of Theoden of rohan, was from the line of Mithrellas of Lórien. So Eowyn and Eomer also had a little bit of elvish ancestry.

In the Lord of the Rings, Imrahil of Dol Amroth is fighting in the ring wars (he's the brother of Finduilas, uncle of Faramir), his elvish ancestry is recognized and mentioned by Legolas.
