Enchantment of Nan Elmoth by Leevah Enchantment of Nan Elmoth by Leevah
My take on a scene from Toklien's Silmarillion where Aredhel, sister of king Turgon, wanders at the outskirts of Nan Elmoth and Eol, the dark Elf, has his first glimpse of the Noldorin tresspasser.
Characters belong to Tolkien.

She is described as a hunter and a free spirited woman, hence I added a dagger to her white dress. Not sure if it is visible, but the sheath of dagger bears parts of Turgon's heraldry (heart and the flower of Telperion as the moon).

Black ball pen on A3, between 30 and 40 hours of work. Critiques and comments welcomed.
