Thingol and Luthien by steamey Thingol and Luthien by steamey
    It is said that Beren and Lúthien returned to the northern lands of Middle-earth, and dwelt together for a time as living man and woman; and they took up again their mortal form in Doriath. Those that saw them were both glad and fearful; and Lúthien went to Menegroth and healed the winter of Thingol with the touch of her hand. But Melian looked in her eyes and read the doom that was written there, and turned away; for she knew that a parting beyond the end of the world had come between them, and no grief of loss has been heavier than the grief of Melian the Maia in that hour. Then Beren and Lúthien went forth alone, fearing neither thirst nor hunger; and they passed beyond the River Gelion into Ossiriand, and dwelt there in Tol Galen the green isle, in the midst of Adurant, until all tidings of them ceased. The Eldar afterwards called that country Dor Firn-i-Guinar, the Land of the Dead that Live; and there was born Dior Aranel the beautiful, who was after known as Dior Eluchíl, which is Thingol's Heir. No mortal man spoke ever again with Beren son of Barahir; and none saw Beren or Lúthien leave the world, or marked where at last their bodies lay.

Даже не читая аннотацию, подумал, что это именно тот момент, когда Лютиэн исцеляет своего отца: буквально физически ощущается, какое с плеч Тингола свалилось тяжкое бремя.
Удивительное умиротворение - очень редкий момент во всей истории Берена и Лютиэн, где иной раз страсти кипят такие, что свариться можно :-) - и этот момент схвачен, как мне кажется, очень точно.
В общем, пять с плюсом, ибо ставить за такое оценку ниже было бы оскорблением самого Толкина. Вот. :-)

Ужасно жалела, что не умею делать анимацию, потому что в голове это была живая картина примерно как в Двух Крепостях (помните, тот эпизод с Теодэном и Эовин?). То есть буквально физическое преображение. Рисунок тем и плох, что он как бы мертвый - передает один застывший момент в отличие от анимированных рисованных, скажем, гифок.
И та же история была с Эльвинг, превращающейся в чайку. Так и вижу перед глазами как она бежит в сумерках, а потом ррраз и вот уже летит птица. Передача этого самого момента - самое интересное, но сделать это можно, мне кажется, только при помощи кино. Или трёхмерки в Майе. Эх.

This is such an amazing picture.  The scenery, the clothes, the interaction of father and daughter, it all fits together. I just read the Silmarillion and I think the story of Beren and Luthien is one if not the best Love-Story there is (and way better than Romeo and Juliette).

If to compare both of it as two fictional stories - yes, definitely better)

This is a warm scene with a lot of feeling, that doesn't get any real attention. You should enter it in the current LoTR Club contest. :)

Well, the contest was for rarely-done scenes, and it seemed appropriate and worthy of being noticed by deviantART Tolkien fans at large. Your pictures generally are. :)
