O.M.G. This seriously deserves a DD or something I can't believe what I'm seeing. You have captured the glorious essence of the race of elves in this absolutely beautiful drawing. I can't even begin to explain what I feel just looking at this! The textures are so soft and every line flows so well into the next. There's this mystical glow that shrouds Thranduil and it adds such a stunning quality of timelessness. His calm, composed and cold nature have been created so perfectly I've never seen such amazing fanart
Thranduil's not "cold". He is a Sindarin Elf. Although he rules over rough and rowdy Wood Elves - he's an aristocrat. He possesses a calm reserved demeanor. Aryan aristocrats do not generally carry on like common ghetto trash. He's also broken-hearted; he's never gotten over the death of his father, and other kin, during the disaster of Gladden Fields.
This is incredible, there's so much light in it. I love the glimmer of his clothing and the strong contrast of shadows. His hair looks beautifully soft and thick too, I adore all the different colours you have worked through it, it really helps breathe life into it. And his face is so serene, so smooth. It's just a gorgeous piece of work
