Luthien Tinuviel by jankolas Luthien Tinuviel by jankolas
The leaves were long, the grass was green,
The hemlock-umbels tall and fair,
And in the glade a light was seen
Of stars in shadow shimmering.
Tinúviel was dancing there
To music of a pipe unseen,
And light of stars was in her hair,
And in her raiment glimmering.

Of all the Tinúviel related art I have seen this is by far the most beautiful. Her hair, her floating dress and her elegant movement - you have captured her perfectly! And her face... she is not just pretty, it looks like she's got character as well ;)

You really managed to draw Luhtien ?? I'm totally amazed! It is so hard to render her beauty, her gracefulness, her light, her dance... and I'm mesmerized by your drawing, so beautiful! The movment, the colours, the veils of her dress, I just don't know what to say, how to express my feelings... (it totally accords to the extract you've given ;))

Glory supreme! What a wonderful piece of art work. Sadly, I don't recall what Luthien exactly looked like but I love this picture and think that Tolkien would improve. Did you know that Luthien was invented after his own wife? And on his wife's grave is Luthien (under her name) and I think Luthien's husband was Balin or something right? Or was that a dwarf from The Hobbit? Now I'm confused, lol.

Anyhow, Luthien's husband's name is under Tolkien's name on his grave since he really made up the story based on them since they had their own forbidden love story due to Tolkien being a staunch Catholic surprisingly enough (since he wrote such awesome fantasy with gods and monsters, for example) while Tolkien's wife, Eddith I think, was a Protestant or something.

As you can imagine, they were forbidden from seeing each other since the times they lived in were still rather backwards. Then Tolkien went to the war (forgot which one shamefully) and only marrie Eddith a while later. Sorry for rambling but I couldn't help it since the picture is very awesome and I didn't know how many people actually knew about how Luthien was created. Stupid though since some probably do so I'll shut up now and fave the picture since it definitely is worth it.

Fabulous!! :)

... yes I already knew that. And yes, Balin was a dwarf and Luthien's husband was Beren. ;) I'm happy that there still are people who are interested in Tolkien and his work. :)

Ah! Right. That was his name. I couldn't remember it for the life of me and I was so annoyed with myself. Anyhow, I am a huge fan of all things Tolkien since it was the first fantasy book/movie I have ever seen and read and certainly the best. In fact, I think that Tolkien was the founding forefather of fantasy in so far as I'm concerned, lol. All others are poor copies and shadows of his works. Some better than others of course.
