So, this was one of my birthday gifts to my boyfriend.
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!
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.

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.
(Sorry for my English ><)
I think it makes sense to have Luthien and (movie) Arwen share a resemblance, since I'm fairly certain the books mention (and maybe a deleted scene in the movies, I can't remember) that Aragorn thought, when he first saw Arwen, that he was in a dream and she 'was' Luthien. I can't recall a hundred percent, but it was something like that.
Very lovely image, and the colors are so soft and lend a tenderness to what's already there. Going in my favorites for sure!
It's before. I guess. Now I can't remember exactly everything I was thinking when I did it. -_-
