daily doodle 13: Galadriel

Las mujeres juegan una pequeña parte en el Señor de los Anillos. Tolkien hizo primordialmente una historia sobre la guerra, por lo que se tuvo que enfocar a desarrollar soldados, aliados y enemigos así como los reinos involucrados. A pesar tener poca participación, personajes como Galadriel o Éowyn son de gran importancia por lo eventos que desencadenan en la historia.
Me gustó mucho lo que Cate Blanchett hizo con el personaje, misteriosa, intrigante y con una voz profunda que te evoca la sabiduría de sus años. El concepto y diseño de la ciudad de Lothlórien es de lo más impresionante y hermoso que haya visto. Está basado en la ausencia de esquinas del Art Noveau y era casi obvio tomar inspiración de Alphonse Mucha para este diseño.

Women play a small part in the Lord of the Rings. Tolkien was writing primarily a story about war, so he had to focus on developing soldiers, allies and enemies as well as the kingdoms involved. Despite having little involvement, characters like Galadriel and Éowyn are incredibly important to the events in the story.
I really liked what Cate Blanchett did with the character: mysterious, intriguing and with a deep voice that evokes the wisdom of her years. The concept and design of the city of Lothlorien is one of the most impressive and beautiful I've ever seen. 
It is based on the absence of corners of Art Nouveau and it was obvious for me to get inspired by the work of Alphonse Mucha for this design.

I thought that Cate Blanchett did a good job as well. She really communicated that air of being someone that was helping but also somewhat scary at the same time. You had a sense that she could unleash her ferocious powers at any time and it was only because of her good qualities that they stayed hidden.

I like this one a lot, though the colors are a bit too muted for my tastes. Really like what you did with her her hair, the crisscrossing lines really accentuate that sort of flowing power she has.

Thanks! Basically the style on this one is inspired by the Alphonse Mucha's art nouveau girls.
I still have some characters in mind, but my workload hasn't let me continue with this project. Hope to get back on track soon!
