The River's Daughter by clpritchard The River's Daughter by clpritchard
I've always been fascinated by nymphs and especially naiads, and so when I discovered that Goldberry must be some kind of über-nymph, I knew she was awesome. I actually went into the book looking for a discription of the River's daughter, but the only one I found was kind of shoddy. So I improvised. I'm satisfied with how she came out, though.

I used to be so irate that Goldberry never showed up in any of the cartoons of LotR (Rankin/Bass, Bakshi) and then I was sad because Jackson ignored her too. Poor child of waters! Very pretty.

i do that with some books. read that over and over again every so often.

i actually meant "material" as in fabric. the creases in her dress and such.

sorry for the mix up! haha

Oh! Hee, hee, I thought you meant with the material, ie: reading material. I love drawing folds. I'm a costumer, so I'm pretty conversant with the properties of various fabrics.

I read The Hobbit when I was ten and the Lord of the Rings when I was twelve, so it had a big impact on me. I re-read them about once every two years or so, and get something new out of them every time.

I'd really like to tell you that I drew this from some kind of deep understanding of the character and prose, but the truth is that I just wanted to draw a pretty girl, and Tolkien was on my mind.

^.^
