Luthien by Ithelda Luthien by Ithelda
My favorite character from Tolkien's writings :)

Long story short, in the Silmarillion, there's this one part where to keep her from saving her mortal lover Beren, her father imprisons her a giant beech tree, and to escape she uses magic to grow out her hair, and creates a ladder out of it, and escapes to go and rescue her prince. RAPUNZEL REFERENCE MUCH? Tolkien is made of win. :heart:

Now why didn't they actually do that in Rapunzel?

Also, I must now go attempt to read the Silmarillion again.

And, I love her dress and dainty little ears :)

Nice hair. :XD: Yeah, I really like the way you have the smaller thinner linework with the larger thicker linework around them. It works very well. :highfive:

Oooooh!!! I LOVE your Luthien! She has so much HAIR!!! She's like a black-haired version of Rapunzel. ;-) (which, well, she kind o was to get out of that tree-house thing her dad stuck her up in :XD:).

And yeah. THEN I read the description. :iconheaddeskplz:. :XD: Ah well, good to know we're on the same page, eh? ;-)
