Arwen Undomiel by Alice-chan Arwen Undomiel by Alice-chan
"The braids of her dark hair were touched by no frost; her white arms and clear face were flawless and smooth, and the light of the stars was in her bright eyes, grey as a cloudless night; yet queenly she looked, and thought and knowledge were in her glance, as of one who has known many things that the years bring. Above her brow her head was covered with a cap of silver lace netted with small gems, glittering white; but her soft grey ramient had no ornament save a girdle of leaves wrought in silver.
So it was that Frodo saw her whom few mortals had yet seen; Arwen, daughter of Elrond..."
~Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring


I hate submitting this into fanart, but so it must be.
I'm bored with the pose. I apologize. I must start making these more interesting.
Gandalf is next!! Let's hope I can do him justice...

She's beautiful! I also really like the chair, the background and the whole picture in general.

Don't apologize - it's a gorgeous Arwen. And thank you so much for capturing the book description, lace-cap, braids and all. :salute:

It's really lovely and nice to see a book-version Arwen (even if I love the movie version too), and I like the old-fashioned look :)

This is simply beautiful.Her hair jewelry and dress are so delicate and elegant and her pose doesn't seem boring to me,i looks graceful.The combination of colours and the leafy frame are quite charming too.
