     You're very welcome for the Leggy pictures [In reply to]  

My pleasure Wink


In Reply To

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.



Agreed. I still don't entirely understand why they had to do the massive photoshop-thingy throughout TH series. Though I do think some might not consider the natural ageing to be a reason for Legolas' slightly different appearance from LotR to TH. Fact is OB has aged throughout the years (very well I might add) and he looks imo more mature than in the LotR series. So it's not all photoshop's fault and I'm guessing they made heaps of improvement with the makeup as well. They can work magic with it. I'm sure they already could 10 years ago but surely it has been improved through the course of time. Don't you think this also could be a reason for some of the 'plastic' looking skin? But yeah still think they also did way too much photoshop to the guy -I mean Elf-.

No matter, he still looks hot Heart (I'm liking his not-so-photoshopped-look in this pic)

     Liking your collage [In reply to]  

With all the gathering of Elven eyes Pretty!

I thought Legolas' eyes were pretty bright in the LotR at times as well




Clicky


But in DOS they seem to have lighten them a few shades more



HTR-alert clicky's due to massive size

And I agree with you that Thranduil's (light) shade suits him so well, does not look unnatural at all.
Light eyed Leggy looks far more dangerous and scary to me. I mean, wouldn't you be scared if you saw him looking at you like this:



So in that regard I think TH team did a good job portraying more of his 'unstable Laugh' Woodelf-side.

     Oh la la [In reply to]  

I see you've found some relevant LP pic's already concerning his eyecolor.
Just for good measure Laugh

     I think it depends on the light.. [In reply to]  

And I can't believe I've found the link, but here are the closeups that make me think so: Lee Pace Daily.

They're actually a tiny bit blue, a tiny bit green, a tiny bit brown, a tiny bit grey, and the amount would change with how the light hits them and how much the light (or some other substance Tongue ) is dilating them. Sometimes that is called "green," but I see it called "hazel" more often. (Or maybe I'm biased, Mr Vanima has hazel eyes. Smile) And my guess is, it's much easier to disguise them "blue" with contacts than it is with Orlando's "brown" ones. (But I really have no idea.)

     Good thinking [In reply to]

So perhaps it should read: Thranduil's complete magnificence doing anything. Inspired by his awesome cool when riding Bubba the War-Elk. See also "Bubba"

Whaddaya think?


Works for me Smile

Loved that 3-1 fabness too, should be on a Mirkwood banner of some sort.

     Thranduil's poster tomorrow!! [In reply to]  

It looks like we're getting Thranduil's character poster tomorrow. Excited? ShockedShockedShocked I know I am!


What do you think? Will they manage to make it as awesome as this pic, capture the full maximum fab exposure of Thranduil? Or are you dreading it will be a let-down, like Leggy's?



Probably more dark and gritty, if the previous posters are an indicator.

Either way, only 19 more hours until we find out Angelic

     I'm torn... [In reply to]  

Because my first reaction to your example is No! That one's plastic! In part because of a comparison set posted by Rowan Greene back in TA thread II:

This popped up for Shortcut, (because I'm not sure the image will show up, even though I can see it in the preview - it's the 2000/2013 pic towards the bottom of the page) but this is Rowan Greene's quote (and pics?):



Quote
Because when you see him in the vlogs or random behind the scenes pictures, he looks more like the LoTR Legolas/Orlando--he looks normal. So what was with all the eyeliner and CGI distortions?

I miss the LoTR Legolas.




But that 2013 image above (and the image in the post I'm responding to) looks very similar to the one in your very next post, and that one doesn't look uncanny valley to me. So I guess it's kinda like that definition of Science Fiction: Science Fiction is what I'm pointing at when I say "science fiction." My Plastic/UncannyValley must be a few clicks out of synch with yours - but we both know it's a problem that could easily be fixed with just a little less CGI-ing of the facial features. Crazy

(Looking at that "image in the very next post" again, I'm thinking the difference in coloring and lighting might have pulled it out of Uncanny Valley for me. And that's still probably down to CGI...)

     I know what you mean [In reply to]  

It's only a mere glimpse we see of him being an absolutely terrifying Elf. But I do pray those full 2 sec. will be in Bofa.

Oh, well spotted! Or should I say heard?



Thnx! I also like this trailer music we get to hear in the official DOS UK trailer.
Everytime I hear this music, it reminds me of Thranduil's grand intro in the trailer "I offer you my help" "How do we know he won't betray us?" *close up of Thranduil's beautiful, ageless and mysterious eyes* "We don't."
I just forget the fact these last two remarks are about Bard and not Thranduil. The trailer makes it seem they are about him though so I just go with that.

     I'll say "dark and gritty" [In reply to]  

Which, with the Elvenking, translates as Hot and Sexy. Cool But, yeah, it would make sense for it to line up with the AT WAR look the others seem to have.

(So who am I kidding, it'll be something out of left field, probably harkening back to LotR, somehow.)
