Sorcery Of Night by tuuliky Sorcery Of Night by tuuliky
A night there was when winter died;
then all alone she sang and cried
and danced until the dawn of spring,
and chanted some wild magic thing
that stirred him, till it sudden broke
the bonds that held him, and he woke
to madness sweet and brave despair...

I really like how Beren looks like a ragged homeless person - because that's what he was at that point in time, after all.

THAT is a man who has just come through the Valley of Dreadful Death ... and I can also see why Luthien ran! :D (Big Grin) Amazing picture.

This is stunning! Your Tolkien art work is amazing, it's some of the best I have ever seen. Thank you very much for sharing it here on deviantart! I love all of your work but especially this one of Beren and Lúthien. It's beautiful and very realistic in how Beren would have looked once he arrived, after all he had gone through. Brilliantly done. I also have to second ESWard's comment from 2 years ago... is there any chance you might draw Aragorn someday? :)

Makes one wonder why she fell for him... she really must have scrubbed him down thoroughly...

I like how savage he looks. Most people always depict Tolkiens world as full of pansy boys. This looks like the guy who just crossed Ered Gorgoroth.

Lovely! Though I now know why she initially ran away from him :P He definitely looks like the sort that you wouldn't want to run into in a dark alley, but that's appropriate considering all that he'd been through. Awesome. I'm going to have to continue checking through your gallery to see if you have any more of them, or Hurin and Beleg, or... dare I hope it?... Aragorn?? :D

OMG, what a perfect Beren! Often people forget about his long and difficult road before he saw Luthien, and draw him without a beard, etc. I really love this picture, you captured the scene pretty much how I imagine it, very naturally, there is no posing here.. Luthien is wonderful too. Kudos

I like how you drew Beren wild-looking with a scraggly beard...much more realistic than many of the depictions I have seen.

Beren & Lúthien! Absolutely brilliant! And Beren looks like a wrecked old guy as he should, not Mr. Hottie. :)

This is the Tolkien story that feels most like a genuine old saga.

I'm so glad to see another Silmarillion fanart in your gallery! I love both: your technique and the vision of Luthien - she truly is the tough girl Tolkien described :) Looking forward to see more artwork! :aww:

Кружила звездная метель
В тиши полян, в плетенье трав.
Там танцевала Лютиэнь;
Ей пела тихая свирель,
Укрывшись в сумрачную сень
Безмолвно дремлющих дубрав.

прекрасный рисунок!
