Under the stars by LiigaKlavina Under the stars by LiigaKlavina
....She spoke no word; but being filled with love Elwë came to her and took her hand, and straightway a spell was laid on him, so that they stood thus while long years were measured by the wheeling stars above them; and the trees of Nan Elmoth grew tall and dark before they spoke any word.

J.R.R. Tolkien
The Silmarillion
Chapter 4
Of Thingol and Melian

You have a real talent!
I thought the characters were Morgon of Hed and Reserve of An (this pic came up when I searched them).
Here is a link to a roleplay based on the book the Riddlemaster:

Their costume design is really beautiful, and I like how their hands almost touch in this moment.

I suppose there’s a reaosn why this scene is so often illustrated, it’s beautiful indeed – and so is your painting! I particularly love the mist and the sense of chilly night air it conveys.

I love this! What a beautiful illustration for this story. I love how you've got the trees tall and dark, making us think this could be the moment when they're about to speak to each other for the first time. Their designs are wonderful. This theme really matches your beautiful style. :)
