The Shieldmaiden of Rohan by ashiey-chan The Shieldmaiden of Rohan by ashiey-chan
"You should not encourage him."
"And you should not doubt him."
"I do not doubt his heart. Only the reach of his arm."
"Why should Merry be left behind? He has as much cause to go to war as you. Why can he not fight for those he loves?"

There are very few things in my life that are as influencial and life-changing as The Lord of the Rings. With the amount of love that both the novels and the films have in my life I am greatly surprised that I have not drawn anything related before. But, yesterday as I sat down to watch the Fellowship of the Ring I felt inspired to draw Eowyn...Shieldmaiden of Rohan.

I hope you enjoy this, I am quite proud of this piece. The green flag behind her is taken from the "Two Towers" artwork from a design by Alan Lee.

Lord of the Rings will always be my first love.

Eowyn is copyrighted to J.R.R. Tolkien and Peter Jackson. This image is copyrighted to Ashiey-chan and is not to be used or produced without permission.

I love this! Everything detail is perfect, except--for me--the heavy mascara & eyeshadow, which seem kinda unlike her. ;) But I know that's standard for almost all modern fantasy & superheroine art, so I'm just being nitpicky. Sorry!

So beautiful! I love her hair and the horses in the background.

Her dress is so pretty! ^^

I love Eowyn! She's really cool, and you really drew her so beautiful. :)

I'm glad you like the horses, I was completely lazy and just drew them without an outline first. I was afraid they turned out weird looking! Haha!
