Luthien before Morgoth by EKukanova Luthien before Morgoth by EKukanova
...but Luthien was stripped of her disguise by the will of Morgoth, and he bent his gaze upon her. She was not daunted by his eyes; and she named her own name, and offered her service to sing before him, after the manner of a minstrel...

Your Luthien is closest to my mind and heart;  as I see her with the eyes of my thought and as I feel her divine power and surpassing loveliness while reading the books. It is the same with your Melian.

Your Tolkien art is worthy of praise imperishable. Wondrous fair as always.

Ура! Дождались! Замечательно: хрупкая, но сильная, прекрасная, но не "безликое совершенство". И решимость Лучиэнь, и напряжение момента переданы очень ясно. Спасибо! :-)

Да, хотелось чтобы присутствовала сила характера при внешнем изяществе).  Про Берена вот всё тоже думаю, -вряд ли рядом с сильным, мужественным, выдающимся во всех отношениях человеком будет хорошо смотреться безликая фарфоровая статуэтка)..    Спасибо!

Думаете про Берена? Вот бы посмотреть на ваши мысли! (ну это так, мечты... Но вдруг осуществятся?)

Эти мысли пока что очень уж туманные),  а рисовать Берена лишь бы нарисовать- это не наш метод).

Well, she and Galadriel who pulled her people across the ice.

Yes, Galadriel is very interesting character;  but I read only Silmarillion and LOTR,  hope to plough through Unfinished Tales someday,  I have an English version of this book, but thats steel too much complicate for me).

This is why the claims that women are weak in Tolkien's world are utter bogus. :giggle: Often they are the toughest and the wisest there. These people simply talk about things they know very little about.
