Thranduil the elven king of Mirkwood

by bitten

A pencil drawing of one of the elven king thranduil of Mirkwood. The portrait is one in a series of drawn portraits of famous movie characters that I am doing. The motivation behind is a fascination of fan culture. The confusion of reality and fiction, where you as spectators often attach same personal features possessed by the character they are playing to the actor

I have been facinated by fairytales with elves, trolls and wizards ever since I was a child and I fell in love with tolkien books...



Hello. My name is Bitten Kari. I'm a Teacher and self taught artist living in Denmark. I like to draw portraits with pen and paper. I find portraits very interesting and challenging, since the human eye is very skilled when it comes to recognizing and observing human features. Though I also draw other things. Another thing I enjoy is working with acrylic paintings and I like to use different styles and techniques depending on what I am making. I have lots of fun making silk screen printing, based on my drawings or photographies. As source of inspiration I'd say life in general, music, people, nature and so on. Sometimes I feel I have something important on my mind and sometimes I'm just flowing along to see where the process is bringing me. Music has always played a major part in my life so naturally it is a big source of inspiration. As I have lived almost my entire life in a small town, close to nature ( and I teach biology ) nature has become a source of inspiration too.
