Alan Lee sketch of Goldberry, colorized Can't Post

Hi, all,

I haven't been here in ages, but when I came across this sketch of Goldberry not long ago, I was so enchanted by it that I couldn't resist seeing what it might look like in color. So I Photoshopped it. Maybe one day Alan Lee will do a full-color painting based on this sketch, but in the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy my little experiment.

That's nice [In reply to] Can't Post

- you've made the colours very delicate; it doesn't look overdone.

Nice choice of the fresh spring colours. :)

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

And I must add you have an amazing Photoshop software! May I inquire what you used exactly? Wink

......At the Mountain King's return
..But all shall fail in sadness
....And the lake will shine and burn

Thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm using Gimp. It's like the freeware equivalent of Photoshop, and Eru, is it hard to learn!

Lovely!! [In reply to] Can't Post

The colors are very soft and clean, and very importantly they don't cover up all the little delicate details of the shading. On the contrary, they enhance the shading. Very well done! Smile

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

So beautiful! // [In reply to] Can't Post


- Good morning.
- What do you mean? Do you mean to wish me a good morning, or do you mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not? Or perhaps you mean to say that you feel good on this particular morning...or are you simply stating that this is a morning to be good on?

- Good evening.
- Yes, yes it is. Though I think it might rain later.
