At first the Valar struck me as gentle but after a second and a third reading the age which saw them walking the earth was not particularly gentle and most of the Valar fought against Melkor and it struck me that the Valar were the very first, the oldest and probably wildest creations of Eru. And then i thought how very not happy Yvanna must have been about the constant destruction of her labour.   

I took the liberty to clad in her a ‘bluer’ cloth.

I’m so happy this turned out like that because this is exactly what i wanted her to look like. For clarification she is of dark skin but filling in with graphit is always a bad idea when i’m in charge. Smudges everywhere. But i hope it’s quite clear that she is wonderfully gorgeous.
