Eowyn - Miranda Otto

Posted Nov 25, 2007, 11:17:53 AM

Miranda Otto's portrait. Referenced from a pic found on the net. I didn't think she's pretty in LOTR actually, but when I came across the photo I was like..."OMG! She's so beautiful!!!" Then..."Blond doesn't suit her." lol. Niwae, this is actually still WIP, since the paper is 16.5 x 23.4in, I still need to fill up the bg n what not, but for her face, it's pretty much completed.

        yeah. t's great when women get to kick ass. Smile

    OMG, I agree with you. I didn't think she looked all that pretty in LoTR, but you made her look sooo beautiful here! (Red hair definitely suits her.) Your portrait not only looks like Miranda, it looks like Miranda at her loveliest! And what a great Mona Lisa smile on her face. Good job!! Favorite

      >///< Thank u so much for ur comments and also for the fav! *hugs* So glad you like this portrait, since this is only the 2nd time I've ever tried doing portraits and I basically had to redo her twice b4 I feel satisfied. >_< I still haven't completed it though. >.> A2 size is...really huge. Ugh. But yes!!! I think red hair suits her too. Blond kinda steals all the color from her face. =S

        I know what you mean about drawing on huge paper. It's a project! But your work is lovely; I couldn't tell it wasn't finished ^_^

            You know, you can't tell. You could leave it like that and it'd still be lovely... (can't wait to see it finished tho!) ^o^

              XDD That's coz I liked her face so much I finished it first n left the other parts pretty much undone. LOL. Omg...why did I even tried A2 size. >_< That's just killing me...N now I need to start doing xmas cards. T_T hahaha. U might havta wait long...lol.

    Another awesome LotR portrait! ^.^

    Personally, I think it was refreshing that she wasn't drop-dead gorgeous in the movies, seeing as Arwen basically stole the show. Besides, I don't think she was really played out to be beautiful in the books, otherwise how could she pass for a dude so easily?
    • Nov 26, 2007
      Hmmm...I can't remember how the book described her but I do think she should be a very "fair" lady or smthg like that. XD But , yeah. Arwen is supposed to steal the show. Tongue N thank u so much for your comments again! *hugs*

    She came out really pretty! The only thing that looks a tad off is her neck. It looks a bit too wide & short. Other than that, it's perfection and way better than I could do!

      Hmm...I'll go check out the neck again. XD Thanx alot for ur comments!
