Though it seems, my account is not dead.

So, this was one of my birthday gifts to my boyfriend. :aww:
Tolkien is his favourite writer, and the tale of Beren and Lúthien was one of his favourite stories. Yeah, so... this is it.

Happy birthday, dear! :heart:
I hope you like it. A_A


As you may see, I made Lúthien in likeness of Liv Tyler, of course. Because for me she is Lúthien walking on earth. Everytime I think of Lúthien's appearance, I can only see her, and when I listen to Liv Tyler's voice, I can only think of... Lúthien!

EDIT.: I'm uploading a 1000 pixels wide version and also changing the category because I saw I did something wrong when cropping the image... Now it's not fitting the wallpaper proportions. So... I'll leave it as a Fanart until I have the time to change it and post a bigger version. ;)

Done for :iconruschel:

Wow! You did splendid job! Especially the flowers look great, and Lúthien's dress is really beautiful :) (Smile) And I like the light in there, it's really magical!
It's fine to see Lúthien as Liv Tyler since Arwen's suposed to look very similar like Lúthien :) (Smile) But I see Lúthien as Edith Tolkien, since the story's based on relationship between Tolkien and his wife :) (Smile)

That's right. Luthien was the inspiration for Luthien. She and Beren are the ancestors of Arwen.
When Edith passed away, Tolkien had "Luthien" engraved under her name. When Tolkien passed away two years later, his children had "Beren" engraved under his name, so Beren would forever be reunited with his beloved Luthien.
That, right there, is true love.

I don't know about anybody else but I sincerely wish that some director would take up Beren and luthien and make it into an epic Movie.

Aragorn and Arwen resemble Beren and Luthien but I feel like Luthien did a lot more than Arwen...........
DGraymanFanatic's avatar
she did. Luthien abandoned her own people for Beren. Although, Awren actually did alot more in the movies compared to the books, like when she drove off the nine wraiths and told Elrond to remake the sword. But yeah, Luthien was kinda cooler. :P

The leaves were long the grass was green the hemlock umbels tall and fair, In the glade a light was seen of stars and shadows shimmering Tinuviel was dancing there to the music of a pipe unseen the light of stars was in her hair and in her raiment glimmering..........

You should google image Sean Young as Chani love interest of Paul Atreides Muad'Dib it's the Dune Messiah an other messianic story same as Silmarilion. Better, search for Crystal Liu Yifei.

Trust me, she's the real thing... look at her works (tv series, movies, music albums, music videos, tv shows appeareances and how fans are treating her). Trust me, from Huan who help them getting married.

Thank you very much! It's even better to receive good comments from people that doesn't know the story. I means you really liked the picture. When someone does fanart you never really know if people commented/faved/rebloged just because they love the movie/series/comics/game/etc.  =)
