Of Sun and Moon by SarkaSkorpikova Of Sun and Moon by SarkaSkorpikova
From Yavanna's singing and Nienna's crying came one flower of Telperion and one fruit of Laurelin. But the trees were dead. From the fruit and the flower, Varda and Aulė made two heaven lamps to shine above the world...
On the left side stands Nienna with the Moon, while on the right side there's Yavanna, but i think you recognized them. I've always imagined Yavanna with some afroamerican face shapes. :)
The vision was quite strange...Hope you'll like it.
I'm sorry, my scanner does not accept the slow colour gradients around the lights! :(
Watercolours on A3 watercolour paper

Nice art !

But there's something I found disturbing ...
When you lokk closely the details are really beautifull : characters and background are really well made
Maybe just the arm in the background is missing ?

But
The global painting is not as much stunning as the sum of the details :/

I dont'catch the real reason, maybe it's about the composition of the picture

Thank you, that thing with the arm sounds truly. I still have to learn so much! Please, if you noticed something else what is disturbing on this picture, tell me.

What a beautiful painting:heart: The contrast of cold and warm colors is very appealing, and I like how both Nienna and Yavanna have slightly different faces! The overall symmetrical composition with a hint of differences here and there works well in my opinion:aww:

One of most magic and important of moments in Silmarillion, I mean,  but I don't remember the art for this subject.
I'm also imagine Yavanna with non european look :)
and for a moment I'm also at work upon this episode :B

I'm looking forwards your work :)

The creations of shining things like lamps, trees and Sun and Moon have something mystical between the lines. :nod:

I'm pleased you like it. Although the gradients could be better, the colors surprised me how easy it was to work with them.
