Miriel Journal by Achen089 Miriel Journal by Achen089
Journal commission for ~anguirel who asked for Miriel weaving her tapestries in the Halls of Mandos.
Miriel Serinde is a very interesting character from Tolkien's works, her story is very short and sad and you can read more in-depth about it here -> [link] .
She was the mother of Feanor, having the task to weave all the deeds of the House of Finwe after her death.

Imaginary weaving-from-a-distance technique was devised in order to fit the journal's composition. :D

Pigment liner, graphite, white and metallic silver pencils, white acrylic on a 13x21 cm Moleskine journal.
The character is a creation of Tolkien.

She still looks tired, poor thing.  Those hands are absolutely gorgeous, by the way.

I absolutely love it, especially her hair and gentle hands. There aren't so many Miriel's portraits on deviant, and this one is the best I've seen.

Thank you. :) I get them at some specialized bookstores but in case you can't find them you can order them from the Moleskine store i suppose.

This is the most stunning picture by you, I think! The expression of Míriel is so strong!
I really would like to have such a journal, it is something special (and a very good idea to draw on it!)

χαιρετίσματα στην αγαπημένος Ελλάδα μου!

I love the style and knowing that it's on a Moleskine journal makes it even better. (hourray for journals :p)
The details of white give a soul to your drawing it's really well done. :)

At first, without reading your comment I thought about the tale of Penelope, Odysseus' wife. She looks so sad...
