I finished another drawing of Luke, again in the dream role of Thranduil, the Elvenking of THE HOBBIT (GdT's next films). This time, I tried to make him look more like the book version--with the leaves crowning his hair, as a warrior, with armour and more forest-like. I'm not sure I succeeded, but it was definitely a lot of work!

EDIT to add: One more thing--I made his crown as a sort of "wink" to the facial scars he has as Prince Nuada. It ended up looking a bit like a mask, but I like the idea that there would be a reference the fans might enjoy!

Here it is--

Luke as Thranduil, take 2!

Good lord woman, you have done it again!!! :stars: Not only have you rendered Luke well but I think you have captured the perfect embodiment of Thranduil as would be portrayed by Luke; majestic, regal and commanding. The detail is suberb and your talent is unquestionable. Thank you for making this!!!

In some part of the world, I hope GDT sees your art. I am convinced that if he did, he would know how perfect Luke is for the role and cast him. Until then, I wait anxiously and will sift through all the casting rumors pushing Luke for the roll as I lurk related forums and boards. I know some people want Doug jones, and I love the man and believe he is talented, but I believe Luke is so perfect for the role as he would bring presence and majesty to a role that demands it. I could go on and on, so I am gonna just stop now. :)

I love Doug Jones, too. And I think he would be great in a role in THE HOBBIT.

Honestly, I'd just be happy seeing both actors in the film. :)

I am posting it as fast as I can draw it...which ain't too fast. LOL. I wish I could be a full-time artist. There'd be a new pic here every day. :(

Love. :wub: :thflirtysmile3:
What a great artist!

And as for Doug Jones...Gotta admit the man is talented and can move for some one almost 50. But I still root for Luke since I've seen this picture.

Maddarilke!!!

Being new here, I hadn't got to this thread till now. You are truly a gifted artist!!! You left me sitting here with my mouth open in absolute awe!!! :you-rock:

If I could draw like you I would quite possibly be the happiest woman on the planet right now!!!

I love your rendition of Thranduil! You've captured everything I could possibly want in costume and weaponry!!! :stars:

Thank you so much for sharing your awesome work with us!!! xxx

Wow, what a nice draw. Congrats, u are a very talented person !!!!

But if I dont remember bad Thandruil in "The Hobbit" doesnt got a great rol. I think he just appear a bit on the novel. Luke Goss would deserve all the movie for him, hehehe.

Yes, we like, we like.
GDT, please take note: this should at least be part of your storybook for The Hobbit.

Maddarilke, you really need to show this to GDT!!
Like I said over on the LJ side, this is amazing! Your rendering of Luke as King Thranduil is a thing of beauty. I love how you'd done the armor as well. I am constantly amazed at the talent this forum holds!
