Legolas Sketch by TixieLix Legolas Sketch by TixieLix
First drawing for 2014!! ^o^  Going traditional coz I'm uninstalling and reinstalling everything on my pc this week, therefore limited access to Photoshop and Legolas coz I just watched The Hobbit part II.  I was intrigued by his change in eye colour and kept trying to remember what it was in LotR (it was either a very dark blue or brown?) - very distracting throughout the movie indeed!! XD

Graphic and mechanical pencils on paper with light touch ups in Photoshop - approx 1hr 45mins

Legolas is all his glory! Nice work! 

His eyes are supposed to be blue, but the actor's (Orlando Bloom) are brown. Sometimes he forgot to wear his blue contacts and you see it in the movies.

haha yes, so I hear from some of the other comments too - I'm surprised they didn't fix that digitally after just to keep with the consistency XD

Legolas's eyes are blue in the movie, but Orlando's are dark brown, so he wears contacts through the movies.  Occasionally they forget to put in the contacts, so you see Orlando's natural eye color a few times.  ^_^

I have to admit that Legolas made me crazy over long-haired guys since I saw him on the Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring movie poster and the movie as well. Gaaaaaaaah :faint:
