Faramir looking down at Eowyn with compassion

“Here was one with an air of high nobility such as Aragorn at times revealed, less high perhaps, yet also less incalculable and remote: one of the Kings of Men born into a later time, but touched with the wisdom and sadness of the Elder Race. […] He was a captain that men would follow, […] even under the shadow of the black wings.”

This is pretty much how I had imagined Faramir would look like, before the movie series gave him ginger hair. J. R. R Tolkien would turn over in his grave! Of course, I understand that the movies had to distinguish clearly between Aragorn and Boromir, hence this travesty.

Faramir is one of my favourite characters in Lord of the Rings. I also like the romance between Faramir and Eowyn more than the Aragorn-Arwen pairing, which I consider to be simply a variation of the love-at-first-sight cliche. Faramir helps Eowyn move on, and the development of her feelings for Faramir is gradual and believable.

I had originally planned to draw the entire scene showing Faramir wrapping his mother’s cloak around Eowyn, but my patience and skill were both insufficient.

Made using Photoshop CS5.
