SCRAPPING THIS. Finally designed/redrew him here: [link]
For anyone that doesn't know, this is King Thranduil of Greenwood the Great, aka the father of Legolas from the 'Lord of the Rings'. ^^ He's a major character in the prequel to the triology, 'The Hobbit', where he both imprisons and befriends Bilbo when the hobbit trespasses in his forest.
Thranduil is a fascinating character, if you ask me. Most fanfic authors show him as being a very fond, if not overprotective father, and rightly so. ^^ He seems like a bastard at first in 'the Hobbit' but he's shown as being a just and powerful king who keeps evil away from his people and his forest WITHOUT the use of a Ring of Power. This is an impressive task considering Galadriel and Elrond have to use Rings to keep *their* kingdoms clean.
I HAD been planning to sit down and actually design a decent outfit (and hairdo) for this character because he deserves so much more than to be a random doodle, but I was bored out of my mind during work and I had nothing else to do.
I'll design a bigger, neater picture of him later. (Not sure where I got the slightly-wavy hair idea from, but I think it suits him. If he had straight hair, I think it'd be too hard to tell him apart from Legolas, who is --by most people's beliefs-- supposed to look pretty much like him.)
