This is one of the best pictures I have seen on elfwood! Seriously, the composition is great. I'm guessing he's standing on the balcony of a castle far away from the sea. The way the sky and the birds in the mini picture correspond with the outer picture...brilliance. Helena Maddiel Stepanova

A very nice drawing. I like the expression on his face and the ship in the backgroung. Helena Maddiel Stepanova

Very moody and atmospheric. I like the sea-birds and the wall - all very detailed. And! Thanks for drawing him dark-haired, as he's meant to be. Helena Maddiel Stepanova
replies: "Um. He's not exactly dark-haired. (Neither am I sure that he's "meant to be" - it's all up to the reader...)My Legolas is actually blond. No... That's not exactly it... Certainly not platinum... It's more something like dark gold. Brown in fact, but with some golden tint and few fairer stripes... Someday I may draw a coloured Legolas, so you may have a look...;-)Thanks a lot for the comment."

The picture captures the Sea-longing that Legolas experienced precisely. Excellent work! Helena Maddiel Stepanova

*steeples fingers* Excellent!! I love his face especially. The cheekbones are very well defined. Did you use a charcoal pencil?
Please keep making beautiful pictures! Helena Maddiel Stepanova
replies: "I'll try... Thanks. Comments are such a motivation...;-)"

Sooo cool. He looks kinda like a vampire, which is wierd but my opinion, so therefore reminds me of the Vampire Louis de Pont du Lac from The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. Only an elf. O_o Helena Maddiel Stepanova

Brilliant idea of composition. With this colour mood it is really longing!

This is very good but Legolas looks just a little too old for me. I know Elves are ageless but Legolas is a young, innocent Elf. Here he looks like Elrond or Celeborn, Elves who have seen the world and are serious and stern. It is is a wonderful picture, though. Helena Maddiel Stepanova
replies: "Thanks for the comment...(And I thought I made him look too youthful...;-))Anyway - it always seemed to me that he changed a big deal after he heard the cry of the gulls on the shore... Guess it shows in the pic..."

the shading is as usual really great, you can really nearly feel the storm. his arms look a bit stiff though i feel, like they’re not really resting naturally on the stone wall. maybe also their size is a bit off. i like the frame in the middle of the picture
