Luthien et Celegorm by Zephyrhant Luthien et Celegorm by Zephyrhant
So, a little fan art of Luthien and Celegorm, since I (and I alone, probabily) was really wishing that Luthien ended up with Celegorm and not with Beren.

This doesn't really goes in the Fan Art cathegory since it is not very accurated with Tolkien's discriptions.

But, enough of blabbing.

Luthien and Celegorm © Tolkien.
Art © Me.

Love this alternative. Just beautiful work.
Rookblonkorules Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2019
This is an interesting idea. On the one hand... the Tolkien canon purist in me doesn't like when anything is changed.  On the other hand, I'm... very interested to see how this would have ended up in the books.
There are theories out there that Luthien put some sort of... enchantment on Celegorm, trying to win an ally to save Beren, and had it blow up in her face phenomenally, resulting in an obsession that probably shocked everyone involved. For crying out loud, the girl is half a Maiar! Her enchantment worked on Morgoth, for crying out loud! 
That's the headcanon I've accepted for them.
Because I really doubt Celegorm and Curufin were truly inherently evil- Curufin's actions later one, trying to kill her and whatnot, where malicious and spiteful for sure, but I'm far more sympathetic towards Celegorm in this instance. But I doubt Huan would have followed Celegorm so faithfully up until that point if he had been truly evil. And Celebrimbor... to raise a son like that, Curufin couldn't have been all bad either. Somebody instilled those values in the kid and it couldn't have just been his mum- especially since he chose to go with his father. 
bleh! No. BerenXLuthien forever. Celegorm locked her up, that aint love.

Well, I've never even thought about this pairing as a possibility, but I really dislike Beren/Luthien (Aragorn/Arwen too), so I'll take it. :) Beautiful artwork, by the way, I love her flowing hair.

Celegorm is such an asshole... Poor Lúthien!
StealthIII Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2016
This is lovely. However, Beren did prove his love to Luthien with his quest with her for the Silmarillion, so I'm not going to question that they were sincerely meant for one anther. Still, GORGEOUS work! Teach me your ways!

Who are these two characters
NightBloomingRose Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2016
This is simply beautiful!  And you are not alone as I like Celegorm/Luthien a lot.  I don't like Beren/Luthien (and Aragorn/Arwen) at all (and well I dislike Beren a lot) and to me it is nothing, but selfish.  And really I hate any human/elf pairing for that reason it is nothing, but selfish and makes no sense to me.  Especially since the elves only love once and men well... definitely don't hold it as special as the elves so I never understand why an elf would love a human especially in Tolkien's work.

Beautiful. I also love the long, flowing hair. She reminds me of a young Jennifer Connelly (in the movie Labyrinth.)

VaatiVire Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love your portrayal of them!
It is rather funny, because Tolkien saw himself as Beren and Edith as Luthien. So much so that the names are engraved on their gravestone.
Tolkien convinced Edith to marry him even though she was already engaged to someone else. I suppose he would be Celeborn in this case because he lost her.

wow, never thought I`d see so many...idk, i can`t describe them right now, not liking/hating the story of Beren and Luthien. It`s the first place where I see that, actually. Pretty sure that very few know that BEREN AND LUTHIEN`s story was inspired by Tolkien`s love life...he was Beren, she(Edith) was his Luthien...but keep on hatin`.

No, do not think that you're the only one!! I never liked the Luthien and Beren romance either, because I see it as nothing but selfish; and then Finrod died because of it :rage: Celegorm is the better option. Great art :humbsup:

Luthien is great. Its rare to see Tolkien-based art of this caliber. But Celegorm? Really? I mean he's hot and all but really? Well each to his own.

Awesome! Love Celegorm, hated beren. Actually, the only men i actually liked in tolkien's works were Aragorn and Tuor, so I guess I can say that your not alone in not wanting Luthien with Beren. Luthien is really, super great too.
