Melian the Maia

Comment: Melian the Maia in the woods of Doriath. This was done in a day, although I must grant that I worked for most of the daylight hours on it. I did not use a model for Melian but wanted to try an unusual pose. (Also, for some reason, most of the Melian pics I've seen have her wearing something skimpy, so I decided to keep up the "tradition.") I also wanted to try my hand (well, mouse) at close-ups of trees. They're a little stylized and not quite realistic if you focus on them, but all in all I'm OK with them. This was one of several pictures of characters that I haven't done before or haven't done in a long time.
