Who doesnt like an elven king?

This is my idea of how Thranduil should be. Inspired by the Hobbit book. Different concept from new Peter Jackson's movie.

It was fun to paint. Elves rule!! ;P

Actually he's as awesome as the book says. Better than the films, better than even my imagination. The most stunning picture on deviantart.com!

No need to. I wish I could draw like this...
Besides, it is definitely one of the best pieces around here :)

Hello! Your art is absolutely stunning and this picture has completely taken my breath away!! I love the shading and the design so much!
I would like to ask if you'd be willing to let me use this picture as the cover image of a book I intend to publish before the year is out. You are completely allowed as the owner of this picture to say no! If you do, I will not use this work! You would be credited on the published book for the cover art of course. Please let me know. :) If you would like to know anymore information, just ask and thank you for considering and for your time!

Sorry but if you are going to publish a book and get benefits from it you have to pay some money in order to use my image.

The details are fantastic! I don't really know what to make of Thranduil yet. He is very mysterious. I can't really tell if I like him or not yet. I think you did a great job on the artwork either way :D

Oh cool, always imagined him (and his son) brown-haired since I read the book as a teen ! (and far before the movies came out)

Nice one) but his hair should be golden anyway) as his hair discribed in the Hobbit. Almost all of them were blonde)
But if not mention this, good)
