Grief by Fantaasiatoidab Grief by Fantaasiatoidab
Legolas is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, featured in The Lord of the Rings. He is an Elf of the Woodland Realm and one of nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring.

I wanted to draw this scene for a very long time. As you can see, I failed completely :( I'm quite sad that this didn't come out the way I imagined but oh well, at least it's Legolas :aww:

Grief, which, in case of an elf, means pulling a face like you're taking a dump and moving on. Amazingly good drawing though, like all your drawings :)

Well, at the time LOTR came out, all the girls were going crazy for Bloom (while I preferred Elijah) but now, I frequently hear how bad he is in the Lord of the Rings. To be fair, I'm French and I think that the voice he is dubbed over is what makes him look even worse an actor, it just sounds so unnatural, so it's not really his fault. In the English version, I find him much more acceptable.

I can't see where you failed here. The only thing that strikes me as a bit odd is that the face doesn't stand out from the background at first glance because in some places the contrast is not that big (it does at second glance though). I don't know what to suggest (as you are much better at drawing stuff than I will ever be... I am jealous as hell of the way you can draw hair), but if you look at that upper lip part below the nose, there's decent contrast between skin and background. Same thing can be said for the throat and chin part. The lines between face and background seem to be a bit blurry (not really but again I have issues finding the right words to explain what I mean) around nose, the brow and between lips and chin, so I don't know, but I'd probably try to get a bit more of a line there by adding some shadow (you've got that shadowy line at the forehead that could go a bit further down for the brow...). Just an idea. I don't know whether that would work or not.

Yes, it's exactly what I meant when I said I failed. His face doesn't stand out (and there are many little things that are wrong with this drawing as well) :) I'd like to thank you for your suggestion! It's so nice of you just to take your time and analyze my drawing AND to try to figure out how to make it better. Thank you! :huggle: I think you're right, when I get back home, I'll try to fix this drawing :) Thanks again!

I can't say that you failed... I'm not enough of a sketching artist to critique it in any helpful form that way... but I have to say, as an overall picture... while the background is softly drawn, there are many crisp lines in this drawing of Legolas - such as how each strand of hair is very detailed, and the angles of his facial features(which I know is partially just his features, but it's also the angle that you're looking at him from which emphasises it)... and they help to emphasise the harshness of grief. I find it quite striking and emotionally moving.

'failed completely'? I beg to differ. :) While I can see how you might not be fully happy with this piece, there are also reasons to like it. Yes, his face may lack the focus or crispness of his hair, but look at that braid! That's a good braid! :) And his ear! Thats an elf ear if ever I saw one.

Not being happy with a finished piece is not a fun thing, Ive been there many a time. But, and forgive the cheesiness, dont let your 'grief' over this piece get you down. In fact, I say try it again sometime soon, especially since this is a scene you love so much. Granted, Ive never drawn the same thing over again, but I believe that one never draws the same thing the same way twice. You might just be happy with the next time. ;)

:blush: Oh, I don't know what to say. Once again you've made me speechless. You're so kind to me and at the same time you also tell me what's wrong with the picture or what can be done better. I appreciate it immensely!

You made me laugh out loud :D "that's a good braid" etc. :giggle: I guess you're right, perhas I should draw it again some time soon. I don't know why this picture didn't come out, it felt so wrong. It's different style from my usual, at least that's how I feel :/

Well Im glad you like my comments, or the way I comment. Sometimes I feel like maybe I come off too sappy on the full-of-praise side, but Im not just trying to make you feel good (though I do always hope that you do) that's honestly how I feel about them, they're great. But I do try to point out spots that stick out to me too, not that they're wrong, they just sorta make me take a 2nd or a longer look.

Well, it was a good braid. ;)
