King of Starlight by Eoweniel King of Starlight by Eoweniel
TUMBLR LINK (Please reblog instead of re-posting!)

I finally painted Thranduil! I just wanted to use all the colours, because he is beautiful across the spectrum.
Middle Earth has been one of the loves of my life since The Hobbit was first read to me when I was 5. So this is not just about Lee Pace; though I feel he made an excellent Elvenking :D

I adore the colors. I was very anxious about how the character of thranduil would be portrayed in the films because I had written about him for years. Happy to say I was pleasantly pleased with him and finally have a face for the character

I'm so happy with the way he was cast! It's a shame they made him far colder than he was in the books, but I understand why they characterised him like that... I wanted a little more of him and Bilbo interacting though :)

The spectrum of colours makes him look younger, as if before the great war that claimed Oropher's life (his father) and countless of his kin. Bet back then he really was Thranduil party king!

I hadn't considered that before, but yes, I suppose he does look younger :) I love the idea of Thranduil the party king :D
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave all these comments. I can't express how much I appreciate it!
