Eowyn's Stand by NickRoblesArt Eowyn's Stand by NickRoblesArt
Hey everyone!

Here's my entry to the Eowyn v the Nazgul Challenge over on The Art Order forums/site. [link]

Had a blast with this and I think it's my first LoTR illustration!

Excellent. One of the few works that emphasizes Eowyn instead of the witch king. I can't figure out what the others were thinking!

 Actually, I kind of feel Eowyn was wildly, wildly irresponsible in the books. She abandoned her obligations, obligations her uncle and her brother dutifully observed, risking life and limb in a war for the entire world. ALl she was asked to do was live a life of relatively opulent comfort and safety back at her family's holdfast, to oversee her people as a steward to the house. I don't think she really deserves as much praise as she gets. She was basically acting like a child, pouting and stomping her feet and then when that failed she flouted the rules to SAVE HER PEOPLE entirely and rode off, the last heir to the Horse Lord legacy. Responsible kid. She basically mooned her uncles' sacrifice, because...well she just wanted to fight...even though she's never, you know, fought before, hasn't demonstrated any seasoned skills, or left any confirmable government behind her to mind the kingdom. She just left.

 She's really a terrible character if you give her any thought.

Love the action poses, and the shadow of his crown--in fact, everything but her eyes. If you'll forgive me a little snark, it looks like her mascara's running.

(Very few pale-skinned blondes have heavy dark eyelashes or brows unless they use makeup, which adds to the impression.)

Hoping you will understand this as affectionate humor and not a serious crit,

Well, you know; the other riders couldn't see much of Dernhelm/Eowyn's face in that helmet, but when they saw the makeup in the eyeslits, they were a little worried.

But all she had to do was point out that *Batman* used it too, and she was fine.

Ah Eowyn, the Witch King should have paid more attention to that Prophecy of his... poor guy. Anyway, great detail, good choice of colors and positioning, keep it up.

So many amazing entries, and I can't decide which one I love more.

I like how the background isn't awfully detailed, but when the eye strays, it isn't disappointed. The severed head, the horse, and the Nazgul in the foreground are all sufficiently detailed without drawing attention away from the focus. Speaking of the focus, her face is amazing. The messy hair, the aggressive stance, the eyes... She's transformed. She looks.. fearsome. A true warrior. A wonderful depiction of a crucial moment of characterisation.

The shadow of the Witch King on her shield is a nice touch. All in all, masterfully done.
