Hello Fan Art folk!
**Countdown to Founders Day -- Eight Maids (and Maidens) a-posing...**
We're counting down to Founders Day, TORn's official "holiday" when we honor the four wonderful folks who created this site -- it's coming up on April 26, and the day promises a lot of fun games and a few surprises!
This year's Founders Day will mark TORn's 12th anniversary! In recognition of that milestone, our countdown is a parody of the 12 Days of Christmas, with posts on a different board every day, each tied into the number of the day.
Today, we're pleased to bring the Fan Art Board Day #8 -- Eight Maids (and maidens) a- well, they aren't milking-- but they do pose well for pictures!
I've hunted through the board and found some wonderful images of 8 of Tolkien's finest females. Here are links to our various ladies, as created by you talented TORn artists!
1. Galadriel -- looking fair (by Goldie Took)...and perilous! (by echoladyuk)
2. Rosie, by Frodo's Pearl-- with her happy husband, Sam
3. An Entwife!, on her journey...by Shadowfaxfan
4. Shelob -- just hanging around -- by demanon
5. Melian and Luthien -- mourning her daughter...by WonderBroad (an extra maiden comes with this one!)
6. Celebrian -- it's morphin' time!...by Elistariel
7. Eowyn -- lots of cool Eowyns: in armor by Daughter of Nienna, as the white lady by EowynDernhelm, as a sculpture by AranNZ, as a sketch by Kelvahrin, as a shield maiden by Aragorn Strider,
8. Arwen -- and lots of cool Arwens! in her room, by Ainu Laire, as a sketch, by galadhwen, along with Eowyn, by Anorien, a small one, by fitzbellatrix, as a living doll (along with friends), by my immortals
I'm only an occasional visitor here, but I really enjoyed looking through the selection of artwork here to find images for this post -- you folks have some talent with a brush, pencil, charcoal, computer, clay, or whatever. I am impressed and will need to check out TORn's "Art Gallery" more often!
In the meantime, hope to see you at Founders Day --it's a lot of fun, so please join in!
