Eowyn and the Nazgul by depingo Eowyn and the Nazgul by depingo
This is my entry for the ArtOrder/Muddy Colors challenge - Eowyn and the Nazgul from The Lord of the Rings. It's such a great scene in the book, so I really enjoyed illustrating it!

I could have spent so much more time on this, but I was busy with work and stuff until short before the deadline °-°;
If I'm lucky and get critique from the judges, I might just work on it a little more :)

Eowyn is a very inspiring female character. She's always been a favorite of mine for that reason.  Great job!

Beautiful. The vains running throughout the fell beasts wings, the face less Nazgul, everything is wonderful :)

She's absolutely my most favourite character from LotR, altought, ironic, playing her part in the real life is not the best to be played...

I adore this!! It is wonderful and it feels like this artwork should be featured in an illustrated book on LOTR. It is THAT amazing. Wish I can buy a print of this as well... Hopefully in the future. Excellent, just superb.

Thank you! I've gotten a few requests to enable this as a print, but since it's technically fan art I wasn't sure if I should because of copyright and whatnot. I'll look into it :)

You make a good point. I did not think of that. I do hope that there will be no issue with it because it is a very beautiful piece of artwork.

FAQ #743: Can I sell fan art as prints? I guess it really doesn't work. Sorry!

I really like your take on this scene. There's something about her position that I love. So feminine, beautiful, yet so brave and strong in heart. Not perfectly sure of herself, but brave enough to face the even the greatest servants of Sauron. Awesome job on the Nazgul mount too.
