This is breathtakingly beautiful! So atmospheric and I love the stern yet serene expression on the Elvenking's face

Absolutely breathtaking, excellent work!

Something just popped up in the murky depths of my memory; Treehugger has published some hilarious pieces of fanfiction on fanfiction.net, and one of the stories is titled "Elrond´s most forgettable birthday. Every year the Imladris household bets on what gift Thranduil will send Elrond for his birthday. This year Elrohir and Glorfindel are both betting on a spider, Arwen is betting on a piece from Thranduil´s famous Gem Room, Erestor is betting on a bottle of the equally famous Dorwinion wine and Elladan is betting on a seasonal crown. He has even written a little poem about the various crowns:
"In spring he wears a crown of colorful flowers fair;
 in the summer leaves of lustrous sheen;
 in autumn, crimson and berries of bounty to grace his golden hair;
 winter´s season is holly and evergreen."
Little Prince Legolas gets the honor of choosing the gift for Elrond...

How much would you charge for work like this? How long would it take to complete?
Hey! I was wondering if I could use this for the cover of a fanmix I'm creating (with full credit to you, of course!). It's absolutely stunning!

This is so beautiful - not only of Thranduil but his clothing and background! I agree - it is the best art of him ever!
