Fantasy Art Friday: "Eowyn vs the Nazgul" by Florian Stitz

I'm just going to be honest and say that I really love this picture. I love how iconic the image feels, having Eowyn standing up to the Witch King of Angmar riding his fell beast mount, showing absolutely no fear. I love the simple and soft colors that cause the image to really pop draw our eyes to our fierce shieldmaiden and the deadly Nazgul. Finally, I love how awesome Eowyn looks. She looks like a bad-ass warrior who is willing to lay down her life to protect the land from the evils of Sauron. This is how I want women depicted in fantasy art. Cool, determined, and simply bad-ass.
