Thranduil king of mirkwood by breathing2004 Thranduil king of mirkwood by breathing2004
Thranduil first appears in The Hobbit as the Elvenking, when Bilbo and the Dwarves enter his realm in the northern part of Mirkwood. The Dwarves are captured by Thranduil's guards and locked in his dungeons when they refuse to divulge their intentions. The Dwarves were rescued by Bilbo, who had remained in hiding with his use of a magic ring of invisibility.
After the death of the dragon Smaug, Thranduil along with the people of Lake-town demanded a share of the treasure of Erebor. War with the Dwarves was averted by the arrival of a goblin/warg army and the ensuing battle.
Thranduil was the father of Legolas Greenleaf, Thranduil withstood attacks by Sauron during northern battles of the War of the Ring, meeting with Celeborn and his people to together destroy Dol Guldur and cleanse Mirkwood of Sauron's taint of evil. Also, Legolas and the Silvan Elves later worked together with Gimli and the Dwarves to rebuild and improve Minas Tirith, capital city of Gondor, the realm of their mutual friend Aragorn. The last time Thranduil was mentioned was soon after Sauron's final defeat.

I really, really love the Bilbo on Thranduil's hand. Holding the arkenstone. *clutches chest* This is so stunning. I also like that you used the Thorin-from-the-movie's design. He really stands out with his blue amongst all that green.

I just looked to all your gallery and it's really looking good, I love the colors and the construction of the scenes. :)

But may I ask why, if you are so passionate about Tolkien, you're chosing the "movie-side" sometimes ? (for example on this drawing : putting Thranduil on a deer when he is, in fact, a deer-hunter or giving dark hair to Thorin when his hair is white, etc...)

(excuse my english if I did any mistake, I'm french ;) )

Your skill for creative compositions is seriously envy-inducing. It's always fascinating to see how you incorporate scenes even in the smallest areas of your picture. Your depiction of the king is very ethereal. I always wondered how someone as haughty as Thranduil was able to produce a kid as mellow as Legolas. I was pretty indignant on the dwarves' behalf whenever they butted heads with Thranduil.
