It's one of my favorite scenes even though it's quite brief. Beautiful depiction!

You're good, really good !! :O
I love the 'images made out of words' idea, and I think it fits wonderfully with Tolkien's work, but have you considered trying some by hand? I think it would be awesome! I realized it would mean a lot of work, but I just imagined how it would look like if the drawings and the letters were hand-drawn. What do you think?

As for hand-made wrighting, I think it might be very cool! But I'm not good in calligraphy, so I prefere to use computer. But if somebody do it, i will be very glad!

I love the idea of these pictures made of words so much, especially for Tolkien, who essentially does just that- create vivid pictures in the mind with words. :) This one is really lovely, I love how flowy Melian is and the swirly representations of plants.

I love the flowing essence you gave Melian, it fits her as a Maia.

I don't know, the swirls and the fact they are in profile... Haven't you seen any Greek amphoras in your history books? Just a thought.

No, it's wonderful. Like a sky with myriads of stars. And I must say that I love the lines in their hair and clothing.
