The Elvenking by Esthiell The Elvenking by Esthiell
"An old and powerful Elf, Thranduil is a cunning warrior who has fought in many battles. As the Elvenking he rules the Wood Elves
who live in Mirkwood. He is also the father of an Elf called Legolas who will go on to have his own great adventures with Bilbo's cousin, Frodo."


Thranduil from The Hobbit film.
I think I bombarded people with too much art this month but school is starting again in a few days and I have no idea when I will be able to draw again :C

EDIT:

WHAT?! I got a DD? Is this real life? Omg, this is my first ;____; thank you guys so much ..*sobs*

The Elvenking by Esthiell is a moment captured perfectly. The whole expression in combination with the style of drawing and the details is just incredible! ( Suggested by Shadowelve and Featured by TheCreativeJenn )
