Forest Elf by Yuuza Forest Elf by Yuuza
This is not Thranduil but it is heavily inspired by the Lord of the Rings elfs
if you're wondering, he is standing in water and those horns are not his own but part of the crown
I'm not sure how long i took for this, 2-3 hours? The 2 bottles were not used in the making of this drawing but i bought them recently and i just love how they look :lol: thos other pencils are 2 mecanical peniuls 0.35 for the sketch and 0.7 for the drawing, and i also inked with faber castle size S :D
i also added touches of photoshop of white and grey

I simply love this new sketchbook and i use it all the time, i have 3 more drawings i made and i am just so lazy to sumbmit them D:D:D:D: omg somebody stop this madness

Right off the bat I must say this is an awesome drawing! You did an amazing job with the details.

The crown is epic, and it does bear resemblance to Thranduil's crown from the Hobbit, but the antlers are massive and more stag-like. It does look a little confusing where the antlers meet the sides of his head, but once you grasp the fact that he's also wearing a crown, which is attaching to the antlers.

The water is another great point. The surface is incredibly realistic, and the reflections are, from what I can tell, pretty much spot-on. Where the water meets the paper is cool. It looks like it's pressed up against glass and again, realistic.

All in all, a very excellent piece! Great job! :)

It's hard for me to add any helpful critique since I'm a pretty new as an artist and since this is such a wonderful piece.
However if there is anything that catches my eye it's the loincloth and the visible hand.
The loincloth maybe could have been more transparent and a little darker where it meets the water. And the visible hand might have looked better with more shadowing in the middle. And it also looks a little bit "stretched" at the upper parts of the hand, on the other side it's charismatic and gives a feeling of strength.
