Eowyn on Horse - Golden Demon entry

Another Golden Demon entry from the same year as the Daemon Prince. This is Eowyn on horse back. The really tricky stuff on here was the free hand in the leatherwork of her armour and the shield design. I was using the art of the films books as reference material to get them as accurate as possible to the film version. I had to simplify the shield design a little because of it's complexity. The Riders of Rohan are challenging to paint for competition due to the very similar tones of the browns in their costume, the only strong colours are small touches of red and the green cloaks.

Oh and she got me a Gold in the LOTR category that year.
