Amid the Hemlocks by Everild-Wolfden Amid the Hemlocks by Everild-Wolfden
The leaves were long, the grass was green,
The hemlock-umbels tall and fair,
And in the glade a light was seen
Of stars in shadow shimmering.
Tinuviel was dancing there
To music of a pipe unseen,
And light of stars was in her hair,
And in her raiment glimmering.


I can't really claim credit for the overall look here - I was following a tutorial (from :iconfreaky665: ), but the other little additions are mine.

And I think I've finally found the style I like. Basically, instead of painting the whole darn thing (which I can't seem to do properly with humans - birds, no problem, as seen in my Autumn Peacock) I just paint in the highlights and reflected highlights - and it's that that gives the painted look. I didn't need to smooth the skin in this picture since it was so well lit, but in others, I'll probably have to.


Background is purchased from Renderosity (available through DA from :iconmoonchild-ljilja: , model from shutterstock (included in the purchase of the tutorial - I don't have the exact link, but it's photo number 11409778)

Well, judging by the fact that she was confused the first time Beren came because she had never experienced panic or fear before would point towards the fact that she's innocent...:pat:
