This is the first ever Lúthien picture which I can say it is somewhat her. You almost made it, but still missing the Elvish grace of her. She is graceful for human, and really beautiful, but Tinúviel was the Most Beautiful of the Fairests and this unsuprpassability you can't managed. But even this way, this is the most Lúthienesque Lúthien I've ever seen. The eyes are there and perhaps the nose. 

Sorry, I am maximalist. :)

And meanwhile I have the answer to my question I made in my previous comment. :D Elen síla lúmenn omentielvo, mellon nín!

This is my Luthien. I love her eyes - so alive and young. I love how you've also blended her hair (so perfect!) with the background, as she if she just rose from nothing and appeared like a beautiful apparition... which I imagine is how she appeared to Beren the first time he saw her.

Something about this says "Mona Lisa" to me. Maybe the smile and pose. But to me, she's more attractive.

Wonderful. This is probably the best Lúthien portret I've ever seen. Maybe it's not ideal, but you managed to catch something in her expression that makes me believe she was the fairest woman of her kind. Something that made her not simply beautiful, but... stunning.
And I do see this "trembling starlight of the skies"(C) in her eyes :)

I always liked Alan Lee's approach on Tolkien's realm. But I'm afraid he can be beaten by you quite easily. Your gallery is full of absolutely beautiful enchanting ink & water color paintings. It's magic. Like this one.

I've seen lots of portraits of Luthien. But i have to say that yours is one of the closest to the image i have of her in my mind. In fact, most of your charachter drawings look a lot like they way i imagined them, but specially this one.

Her face is absolutely gorgeous. I don't even know what it is about it that makes it so compelling, but the shape of her chin and the sparkle in her eyes is lovely. I also like the soft blue on her dress, and the way her hair fades into the dark wash at the bottom.

She looks so beautiful and serene, yet I love the way the dark shades of gray used for the background bleed into the colors of her clothes, almost as a foretelling of the bitter fate awaiting her and Beren :nod:
