Thranduil Portrait by Jay-Carpenter Thranduil Portrait by Jay-Carpenter
A client approached me with a fan-fiction she had written centred around J.R.R. Tolkien's character 'Thranduil.' This is a crop from the painting which I'm currently working on based on the text she had written. She is a talented writer and he's a great character, so I've really enjoyed painting this so far :).

This style I've been experimenting with, and is a departure for me, so I hope you guys like it.

I recorded the beginning of the process for this painting here if you're interested:

This is by far one of the best detailed paintings I've seen of Thranduil. ^_^
