This is a sketch I made several years ago. Back then, I still had an undefined idea for elves, so Luthien's appearence is echlectic, a little native american and victorian. I wanted to capture the specific moment when Luthien allows herself to be touched by Beren and becomes doomed. I wanted the drawing to be romantic but sorrowful as well. I never finished drawing beren, mostly because I never found the time to finish the drawing. I didn't really care, because this was only a sketch I was going to make a painting. I haven't made the painting yet..
