Beren and Luthien by MyWorld1 Beren and Luthien by MyWorld1
This is my side of an art trade with :iconmareishon:, she asked for Beren and Luthien. I knew of the characters, the way they looked, that she was an elf and he was a man, and other things, but I have never read their story... tell me if this it accurate or not.

Done with prismacolor pencils.


I hate drawing trees!! I hope they look ok.....

Here is her side of the art trade:[link]
It looks great, please take a look!!

Here's where you can see more Tolkien inspired pieces by me:[link]


I used :iconletzteschatten-stock: great stock[link] for the ref:)







Drawn Dec 2011.

It's been a while since I've read it, but I think it's accurate - certainly to the overall story!

And your forest looks good! I have a hard time with them, too.

Good job!

It's been a while since I read the books, but I remember this story vaguely.

She is gorgeous! And their costumes are <3

I think Aragorn also summarised narrated that story in the extended version of Fellowship of the Ring movie? I seem to remember a scene like that, where Frodo wakes up in the middle of the night to hear Aragorn singing and he says the song is about the story of an Elf maiden and Man etc etc ...

Wonderful as usual. The love story of Beren and Luthien is epic and beautiful. One of my favorite Tolkien stories in the Silmarillion. You captured their love under the trees perfectly. You are so talented.
