Well, this didn't take long at all . Remind me not to do anything in pointillism for at least a couple of years!
It's my second drawing of Lee Pace as King Thranduil, one of my favourite characters in The Hobbit Trilogy. I was very excited about him having way more screen time (and some pretty awesome fighting scenes!) in the final film - lots of great stills and promo pics for me to draw.
I'm about 80% happy with how it turned out. I honestly don't know what I was thinking when I decided to do a whole piece in pointillism - again! -, using only a 0.1mm pen. It was ... well, let's say it was an experience. But not entirely unpleasant. I like his hair and some parts of the crown. Also, I'm happy I more or less managed to get his left eye right. I had problems doing that in my last pointillism piece, so yeah ...
Somebody told me I should leave the crown white, and as the background was already pretty dark I decided to do just that. In parts, anyway. And I kind of like the effect.
There are some mistakes regarding proportions and likeness, but overall I think he's recognizable as Thrandy (also, there's not much I can do now, seeing as it is all done in pen).
Hope you like it. Comments and critiques will be greatly appreciated.
