Frodo looked up at the Elf standing tall above him, as he gazed into the night, seeking a mark to shoot at. His head was dark, crowned with sharp white stars that glittered in the black pools of the sky behind.'

I keep finding after I comment, that it was a doop of a comment I made earlier. Maybe I should check before I make a comment I can't erase. But when there were some 677 comments alraeady made ...how ?
Now to Legolas. I recall from the movie he and that dwarf Gimli kept count of all the orcs they shot and Gimli even kept mimimizing Legolas' count.
Elves say dwarves have no souls and just cease to be when they die.
This is so different from the movie Legolas, not just the hair, but the aura, I don't know how to say it, but it's positive He is much more like the Legolas described in the books, still don't know why...
You're a great artist, did you know? While some, like me, call they're sketch-like drawings "art", this truly is...
Love this, really
