Fanart: Guinevere of Rohan  
Drawing for thefuturequeen 's Gwen Battle Summer 2010. \o/

Prompt: Shieldmaiden of Rohan Camelot. (Any ship)
Pairing: Arthur/Guinevere ...but arguable, if Morgana turns out to be Faramir. :P







eee! so several things:

1) I fucking LOVE Eowyn. So whoever asked for this prompt: YOU WIN SIX GOLD STAR STICKERS. ♥__♥
2) This was a fic-prompt that I claimed for art so um...yeah. But I had epic stories for Gwen of Rohan in my head while I drew, don't doubt it. I just can't write 'em. ;D
3) Yeah, that's totally the Pendragon design all over Gwen's hometown. And then again on Arthur's cape? ...YEAH. Concept!fail that I didn't catch on time. xD
4) It's not unfinished if it's colourless, I say! It's all...etched.
5) That be all. Comments?  :D

My favorite Eowyn moment captured so perfectly with the fabulousness that is Gwen! I love the angle of her head and the way her hair is blowing in the wind (TENDRILS). This is simply lovely and beyond awesome.

I love that scene too! although it was difficult choosing it over Eowyn's more ~kickassy~ scenes. ♥__♥

I TOOK EXTRA CARE WITH THE TENDRILSSS, I DIIID!

I love that moment in the movie! You captured the moment beautifully.

I've done an art piece for the Gwen battle but wasn't sure when posting began so I'm glad someone went first. lol
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 05:58 pm (UTC)
LOL apprently *now* it's open so... yeah. I only posted because if I stare at my work for too long I start to hate it. :P

This is so beautiful and I can totally imagine Gwen like this! :D

thanks!

I LOVE it. I'm not exactly sure about concept, since I fail at LOTR. (only seen the movies and not in a long while.) But's it's BEAUTIFUL. I love the black & white. And I especially love Gwen, just everything about her. Her bodice, her posture, her hair (the tendrils! wisping across her face in the breeze!) ::SIGH::

So yes... beautiful :)
felix aeternus: Gwen - Future Queenfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:03 pm (UTC)
ah, I read the books after the movie and...well, the movie is a lot more flavourful, so I don't blame you. ;)

Thanks for commenting! lol, it's one of those rare occasions where I'm quite pleased with how Gwen turned out too. ^-^

OMG!! Gwen of Rohan Camelot! Waaaaaaaaaaaaahh EPIC! I freaking love LOTR esp Legolas. hahahaha

Gosh bb, you are so freaking good!! I wish I could sketch like that!
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:05 pm (UTC)
ah, but who can not love legolas, bb? ;)

Gwen as Eowyn? Arthur as Aragorn? AWesome! I love this, it's beautiful!
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:06 pm (UTC)
thanks bb! I'm not sure those crossovers totally fit the characters, but all the same, for the sake of the prompt... x)

I haven't seen LOTR is a while (actually I've only seen the first one), but I absolutely love this. Gwen looks.....GAH beaurtiful. I just love the way you draw Gwen's curls. You always do them sooo well.

And Arthur I just Love him and the horse. I love how you drew Arthur on the horse, very realistic.

Good Job!
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:06 pm (UTC)
ooh the movies get better with each one bb! ;D This scene is from the second.

So, lj ate my first attempt at love. Here it goes again.

This is really, really beautiful, I love the concept and seriously, this AU needs to exist. And hey, maybe them both being from Rohan/carrying the design around doesn't necessarily mean concept!fail, it could just be a different read on the story, maybe she's the king's ward or something like it, and he's coming home, maybe he's the king's ward. IT OPENS POSSIBILITIES. you know, imho...

Also, I love that it's etched, btw.
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:09 pm (UTC)
hahah aw thanks so much for commenting...twice. ;D The "etching" is only happening since I broke my graphics tablet and I'm drawing with its back-end (i.e. the eraser). It's frustrating, but student budgets, so hey. :P

Lovely piece makes me think of a cross betweena nd etching and a print.

Blessed Be
Lilith.
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:11 pm (UTC)
I'm not one for printmaking myself, but I love looking at prints...the details and their precision blows my mind! But this is just a "sort of imitation", since my equipment is faulty anyway. xD

Thanks for commenting <3

I love all the detail. And Guinevere's dress. And her hair blowing in the wind. And the Pendragon design. And the black/white contrast. And... yeah I pretty much love it. =]
felix aeternus: Pendragon Cloakfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:12 pm (UTC)
lol thanks bb! I was unsure about the contrast thing, but glad to hear it worked!
Esmeralda: arthur/gwen; made of goldla_esmeralda_ on August 7th, 2010 02:17 pm (UTC)
Omg, I didn't realise you picked my prompt! *bounces*

This is completely beautiful, I love the etched sketched style -- it gives it so much movement -- and she looks so strong and powerful ♥
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:19 pm (UTC)
It was yooooooooou! ♥ *puts gold stickers all over you*

thanks for commenting, and for prompting this, lovely!
cantseethesky: Gwen-FarAwaycantseethesky on August 7th, 2010 04:14 pm (UTC)
Oh Beautiful! Not a LOTR fan so I don't get the reference but.... Gah the torn flag imagery and the dark-hair-blowing-in-the-wind thing is KILLING me <3<3<3
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:31 pm (UTC)
haha, it's a pretty sweet scene, actually: Eowyn's the niece of a king who's under a dark spell, so their land has been taken over by evil and the people are suffering. She walks out of the palace, frustrated and hopeless, and the kingdom's flag next to her rips in the force of the wind and flies...only to land right in front of Aragorn, who is just arriving. He, more or less, is the one that later saves the kingdom from all the eeeeevil.

That was a lot of powerful epicness packed in a lame paragraph, but you get the drift. xD

Gweeen! How so epiicc!? For reals, I'm kinda in love with this and Gwen. Her hair and position and just evvverrrythinggg. Really, really wonderful job!! :D
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 7th, 2010 06:32 pm (UTC)
thanks bb!! it's hard not to make her all epic when you crossover with lotr/eowyn! ;D

Didn't see this before because of shenanigans. Lovelyyyyy

LOL oh, the shenanigans. I'm sure your RL shenanigans are more fun than that one here. ;D

<3
kasie101 on August 9th, 2010 04:02 am (UTC)
i absolutely love the contrasting off white off black coloring - yes, i have no idea what the technical term is - but i love it!

i don't know this scene myself, but the top one seems to me to be..empty, passing feeling while the bottom seemed to have more passion or feeling for some reason. i really hope that the bottom is arthur coming back to guinevere. :)))))
felix aeternus: Pendragon Cloakfelix_aeternus on August 13th, 2010 11:35 pm (UTC)
ah, late reply is late, but thankyou! I'm not sure if there's a technical term for the contrasty thing I did...or if there is one, I haven't a clue. x)

I like the idea of Arthur returning to Gwen, even though that *technically* isn't the scene from the movie. But it shall be, in my crossover...in my head! :P
Trinhcrazy_in_lost on August 9th, 2010 05:05 am (UTC)
I love Eowyn almost as much as I love Gwen, so this makes me so incredibly happy. Fantastic job!
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 13th, 2010 11:36 pm (UTC)
Same here! Love them both. :D

Thank you!

GUH.This is gorgeous!!!!
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 13th, 2010 11:38 pm (UTC)
Thank you! and your icon is just lovely... *nerd mode on* the scene still reminds me of Viggo's story (DVD extras) about the cast partying on the hill all night so they could shoot a pretty 5 AM sunrise! *nerd mode off* :P
The Cee Monster: Gwen smilingsagacious_c on August 10th, 2010 02:39 am (UTC)
Beautiful! The fact that you've drawn "wind" is impressive. I love the way we can see Gwen's dress rippling in the wind, particularly the sleeve. Wonderful details!
felix aeternusfelix_aeternus on August 13th, 2010 11:39 pm (UTC)
aw, thanks for noticing the 'wind'! Originally I hadn't paid attention to Gwen's sleeves and such, but I'm glad I caught it before the end and fixed it. x)

WOW. Just. WOW. This is so fabulous, so gorgeous.

I especially love it because my chromatic recasting of LOTR picspam has Angel as Eowyn. *\o/*

Thanks so much for sharing!
