To me, Beren looks a little like Tolkien himself, which is a great considering how closely he identified with the character. He is a bit to clean for someone that kept going from bad to worse until his marriage. Luthien on the other hand is just perfect
This would be the best image for the Hollywood Beren & Luthien. Both characters have their signature character traits, at least those which might be termed physical at first look. But at the same time they have the attractiveness of looks & personality to appeal to movie audiences. No interest so far in select outtake movies from New Line yet, but we can dream....
Y'know, this is one of your VERY few pictures that doesn't work for me, and I finally figured out why: Tolkien's Beren just doesn't seem like the type for duckface, or even for chiseled looks and perfect grooming. He's a very human warrior going from doom to doom, and his rough imperfect humanity (including five-o-clock shadow) should contrast with her immortal beauty.
Personal opinion, of course.
--Nonie, still MADLY in love with your Celegorm and the rest
А я то думала, кто же окажется самой крутой парой Средиземья!))) Почему то про Арагорна и Арвен подумалось))) Здорово получилось, она прямо Лютиэн, очень подходящий образ! Он, так же хорош, кого то он мне еще напоминает, но не соображу)))
