I just now realized that I have no pictures of my version of Legolas on my devArt page. I have lots on my website, [link]
but none that I deemed good enough to put up here. So, let me give you a little blurb on why I have overhauled the movie Legolas.
I realize that this may cost me many of the friends I have here, but I cannot stand watching Orlando Bloom try to act!
Legolas is my favorite character in the books, aside from Merry and Pippin, where he actually has a personality/ sense of humor/ backstory. But man... the movies... I pretty much cringe every time Orlando opens his mouth.
So. I have basically come up with a design as far away as I can possibly get from the blonde, poncy movie Legolas. I cropped off all his hair and made it darker and angled out his face. Unfortunately, my version of Legolas does not coincide with the description of his father in The Hobbit, which gives him fair hair. So... let's just say Legolas takes after his mother. Maybe I'll draw her. Sorry Thranduil's a little scary looking.
I apologize to anyone I offended with my blatant Orlando-bashing.
