I had a sketch of Legolas that I’d started a decade ago (literally) and it was fantastically awful. In that version he looked like a constipated horse in a particularly murky pond.
So I excavated the sad-looking thing to see if I could make anything of it – and lo, I made this!
If you want to see the transformation from constipated pond horse to woodland prince, scroll down for an animated gif of the journey.
