A Daughter of Kings by alicexz A Daughter of Kings by alicexz
'A time may come soon,' said he, 'when none will return. Then there will be need of valour without renown, for none shall remember the deeds that are done in the last defence of your homes. Yet the deeds will not be less valiant because they are unpraised.'

And she answered, 'All your words are but to say: you are a woman, and your part is in the house. But when the man have dies in battle and honour, you have leave to be burned in the house, for the men will need it no more. But I am of the House of Eorl and not a serving-woman. I can ride and wield blade, and I do not fear either pain or death.'

'What do you fear, lady?' he asked.

'A cage,' she said, 'To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.'



An interpretation of a favorite character of mine, Eowyn of Rohan. Painted in Adobe Photoshop CS5, just a personal illustration and some hair and lighting practice. I would love to do a series of Lord of the Rings inspired work!

Amazing. I love that expression you have captured on her face. I see so much in it: feminine, vulnerable, noble, beautiful, fear, and strength all wrapped up in your painting. Very nice.
