     FEAST... of a different sort [In reply to]  

Flustered ELVES and Sassy Thrandy

Quote

To his men, Thranduil appeared calm and collected. Even with the enemy barreling down on them, the legions of the Elven King took solace in the borderline bored expression on their leader’s face. If Thranduil did not see these screaming savages as a threat, why should they? Little did they realize, their King was so calm because of the cocktail of party drugs coursing through his body. His generals had told him there was a kegger on the other side of the enemy line, and nothing stood in the way of Thranduil in search of the ultimate soirée.
PARTY HARD!" he roared, kicking his tricked out stag into the fray.

     Yep thought so too [In reply to]  

I think he looks amazing in DOS (just like FabDadHeart) and I'm sure he will kill it in BOFA as well.

Clicky at own risk (HTR alert!) He looks so good when not overly photoshopped. Hope they won't have too much work done to Thranduil for I too like him best 'au naturel' (as far as that goes with all the hair and makeup Smile)


(I for one love his eyes in DOS. I know there's been a lot of discussion about it but to me they stand out in such a good way. That dangerous intensity make him seem all the more the 'dangerous Wood Elf' he must be in TH).

     Thnx for the map drawing [In reply to]  

Aglarond is way closer to Ithilien than any other Dwarven realm. Ideal for short (respectively) visits to/from Gondor. Though I'm not sure what the scale is of that map, but I'd imagine it still is quite the trip.

Posted on theonering.net fb

Bigger: https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/...51413352041425_o.jpg

Slightly different from the one we already know:


Nothing ground-breaking I know. Could even be considered slighly obsessive to find such minimal changes in a year-old pic. But hey what can I say, need to do something with my time. Would like that promotional material though Heart (and it's still way better than current bofa poster)

Nice finds on the fanarts! Can't get enough of the Thrand/Ned crossovers, sweet Heart

Here and there, the digital facelift is over the top - it makes him look a bit plastic. A few touches is all OB would need in even the worst of action poses.

It took me some time to get used to the eyes (they were often so dark in LotR), but now I think they fit better with TH. The 'dangerous' feel of this Elven environment does make the Tiffany Blue eyes feel right. Tongue

And I love ALL the pictures you've posted! (I have no doubt Thranduil would be happy make room for Legolas.)

Exactly. It seems like some overzealous CGI artist got pavlov'd with the one memo: "Legolas' eyes. Make sure they're BLUE or else..." Crazy

Just LoL at Tiffany blue! I guess there's only so far you can go with making dark eyes light-coloured even with the best of coloured lenses?

Always loved this BTS shot of Thranduil, eyes so icy pale all on their contact-lensed own ... hmmm, does it mean LP has pale eyes?

Aglarond is way closer to Ithilien than any other Dwarven realm.

&

....but I'd imagine it still is quite the trip.

I didn't look up the distances (even with the Maps of Middle-earth close at hand Evil) But yes, it is nearer, to quote Gandalf, "As the Nazgul flies." But Aglarond is under those three peaks, and with the whole Ered Nimrais between them, I wonder if it's all that convenient for Legolas and Gimli to have dinner with each other. I would hope the Eagles started some sort of Fedex service or Gandalf lose/give up his exclusive rights to mothmail for the greater good (maybe he franchises it?) Tongue so that it's not difficult for them to "Heyo" each other at least.
