According to the books, Oropher charged in when he was not supposed to.  It cost him his life and about two-thirds of the armed might of Mirkwood, too.  Poor Thranduil, indeed.  Whether he was ready or not to be king, the crown passed to him.  I think he acquitted himself well in that role.

Great rendering!

Many fans of Tolkien reacted negatively that PJ added his own stories for the book, I respect their opinion but we can't deny that his addition led us into understanding why Thranduil became who he is. And this art of yours, deary, captured that emotion the others didn't bother to consider. Thank you.
