So emotional and a happy moment! We need more of those in life and Thranduil especially I think. Wonderful picture with the fathers both devastated and relieved face on sons shoulder❤️

Yes!!!!!! This was so needed, I love it. Nothing more emotional then seeing their son isn't harmed. You did an excellent illustration!

I totally agree to you princessireneofceres!!! My heart broke seeing this pic and it till does everytime my stupid brains remebers me of this scene and that a hug should have happened! :(

I totally believe Thranduil loves his son deeply, it's just that he doesn't know how to show it a lot because after his wife's death he shut down. And I think Legolas loves his father too, he hasn't said anything bad about him but wishes they could be closer. This pic has hit me straight in the feels, I know in that last scene with Legolas in BotFA, Thranduil was looking through the corpses and praying one wasn't his son, and the relief in his eyes seeing Legolas alive.

I really wish we'd seen more of their relationship in the movie. The love triangle issue is so overdone in movies, I miss a good parent/child overcoming being at odds and simply being content with the love they have for one another. I'll have to throw this into the head cannon of things I hope happened at the end of the War of the Ring. Beautiful depiction!

I cant believe Thranduil was as cold as hes sometimes depicted.
ItanHimitsu Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2015  Student General Artist
same, thank you !! i was quite happy to see them together, i was very curious about what kind of relationship was going to be depicted... and i wasn't disappointed tbh X° ONE STILL WANTS MORE THO ; w ;

One always wants more when something is done so well :) Perhaps the Extended Edition will offer us more, as the part about Thranduil's wife/Legolas' mother was an issue that was mentioned and never elaborated on other than "Your mother loved you" - and while she's never touched on once in all of Tolkien's work, I felt that that was the most redundant thing that Thranduil could have said as it did nothing to ease the tension between HIM and Legolas. Eh, but c'est la vie. This piece is great, and I believe someone else said that the emotion is fantastic for not even being able to see their faces. I can almost see Thranduil's shoulders shaking with sobs at the joy of seeing his son again after hearing about all their feats and near brushes with death. :) :heart:

These are one of those artwork where in after watching the entire trilogy, you just wanna grab a pen and write your heart out but you just can't find the right words because the picture is so goddamn awesome, it'd be a shame to soil it with amateur skills ;-;

I recently finished the Eragon book series ("Eragon", "Eldest", "Inheritance"); I've gained a deeper respect for the complexity and depth of relationships between immortals, chiefly their connection to their offspring.  As it is in the Eragon universe elves are not prolific as we Humans, child bearing is infrequent to the point of rarity.  Taking into consideration their immortality, I imagine the weight uncertainty must weigh on them even more.  To think, you are already 400 years old, and your son/daughter is 100, unlike with Humans you don't expect them to outlive you because ideally you both will never die... Hm, I think I'll digress.  I doubt any of this is communicating the intended message, words seem to fail me today.  

Ultimately I adore this peace; it strikes me with the resonance of a filial bond unlike what Humans experience or can fully comprehend.  The colors, composition, and all other technical points are remarkably aesthetic.

Thank you ItanHimitsu for making and sharing this.  :']
