"Nerdanel the Wise was arguably the greatest sculptor in the history of
Tolkein's Middle-earth. Her father was Mahtan who learned the working
of stone and metal from Aulë, the God of Crafting, himself. Her
husband was Fëanor, the maker of the Silmarils."
This painting was provided for the Valar Guild's 14th Anniversary
on October 4, 2011 and also illustrates the article "Nerdanel
" in the Valar Guild Tolkien Encyclopedia.
Nerdanel-(V) is from California. She joined
the Valar Guild on August 7, 2011 with Full Member Honor and games with
us in Lord of the Rings Online.
Her bio from Deviant Art:
I am a professional digital artist with
degrees in Game Art and Computer Science. I love Science and Numbers
and Words and Games of all sorts (video, board, tabletop and puzzle). I
read quite a lot, write some of the time, and draw not nearly enough.
Her work above may also be found on Deviant Art. Here's her starting page there, including her ongoing Tarot Deck using My Little Pony subjects.
