Idril Celebrindal, Daughter of Turgon
“But fairer than all the wonders of Gondolin was Idril, Turgon's daughter, she that was called Celebrindal, the Silver-foot, whose hair was as the gold of Laurelin before the coming of Melkor.”
-- J. R. R. Tolkien: The Silmarillion, chapter 15: Of the Noldor in Beleriand
My second attempt at sketching Idril Celebrindal, princess of Gondolin, daughter of Turgon, wife of Tuor, mother of Eärendil, etc. etc...
This was a small character sketch done for a bigger illustration idea I've had kicking around in my mind for some time now.
It's quite rough and still not exactly like I picture Idril, but I thought it could stand on its own as a concept, so I worked it into a deviation. It also served as an exercise in digital colouring.. oh boy, do I have a lot to learn of that..
