About the drawing

The lady depicted in my drawing is Liv Tyler, who used to be one of my favourite actresses in the past. Or, to be more precise: when I saw The Lord of The Rings about 10 years ago. She was my "girl crush" because of her beauty as Arwen.
The drawing had been started in 2010 and I gave up on it shortly after. Some time ago I posted the unfinished wip of this portrait at my Facebook fanpage and received a lot of positive feedback on it. Later, Paula [pbird12] drew Liv from the same photo, and encouraged me to finish my drawing. These two reason made me decide to get down to it :aww:
Here is Paula's wonderful version:

I dedicate my version to you, Paula, for your kindness and precious support :cuddle:

Half of this portrait was drawn in 2010, therefore some parts might look better if I'd executed them now - the eyes for example. I decided to go for minimal style, as the reference photo was pale, and when I printed it out, it was even more pale. I know I might be told to copy IleanaHunter's style, but my piece differs from her unique style. Ileana does much less shading and far more details :) And I discovered Ileana's beautiful art later than I had started this portrait of Liv.

Hope you like it :rose: :iconcocoloveplz:

Oh my, I have/had such a massive girl crush and Liv AND Arwen. :lol:
Her hair (again) looks very soft and shiny, and I really like the ring! :heart:

I knew you were awesome as an artist alone, but if you like Lord of the Rings that just makes you epic. This is amazing, I love the hair ^^

I'm in the middle of my ten thousandth LOTR marathon right now XD I'm also reading the Silmarillion. It's a bit of a tough read though.
You're welcome :)
