Legolas aims at the Fell Beast by peet Legolas aims at the Fell Beast by peet
'Legolas laid down his paddle and took up the bow that he had brought from Ló rien. Then he sprang ashore and climbed a few paces up the bank. Stringing the bow and fitting an arrow he turned, peering back over the River into the darkness. Across the water there were shrill cries, but nothing could be seen.
Frodo looked up at the Elf standing tall above him, as he gazed into the night, seeking a mark to shoot at. His head was dark, crowned with sharp white stars that glittered in the black pools of the sky behind.'


JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: Book 2, Chapter 9: The Great River

spectacular work, the "his head was dark" line always puzzeled me. I never was sure if they were talking about hair color or the shadows.

This is amazing, I checked your LoTR illustrations, and they're so... Great. The Tolkien-ish atmosphere.. wow.
This is so different from the movie Legolas, not just the hair, but the aura, I don't know how to say it, but it's positive :) He is much more like the Legolas described in the books, still don't know why...
You're a great artist, did you know? While some, like me, call they're sketch-like drawings "art", this truly is...
Love this, really
