Okay, so, another day another illustration! So far I have actually done my part and completed a drawing each day, it is a habit I hope to continue! (To draw for 1-2 hours several days a week).

This is the second post on the Tale of Tinúviel from the Book of Lost Tales part 2. This post contains the rest of the plot, more characters and features to note, and my comments on the chapter. This chapter contains the love story of Beren and Tinúviel that would develop into the tale about Beren and Luthien, which is one of the core tales of Tolkien's Middle-Earth.

The chapter begins with a Link to the Tale of Tinúviel in which the current state of Eriol's stay is made clear and he tells shorter tales of where he comes from. The main lovestory about Tinúviel and Beren is told by Vëannë and since it features ~40 pages this post will be split in half. My commentary will be provided in the second post and this one contains half the plot and a few features to note.
