Mellon by AgentWhiteHawk Mellon by AgentWhiteHawk

EDIT: Oh my gosh, a DD? Wow, Thank you so much DA! I'm honored!

No, not the fruit! "Mellon" is the elvish word for friend :3

//The Hobbit fanart//

Anyway, I'll get back to that in a sec. I decided to finish a sketch of Legolas and Tauriel I did a few weeks ago to practice anthro/lighting/photoshop shading. The works :3 I must say, I like how it turned out! At first I didn't think the sketch looked enough like the characters, but it ended up coming out pretty well ^ ^ Woot woot anthro lionss!

Back to the details! I'm honestly surprised how much I like these two :3 I'm normally a huge fan of canon couples (which Kili and Tauriel aren't), but more against non-canon pairings. However, if they had to have any type of "romance" I would have preferred it to be between Legolas and Tauriel. Not this mushy romance crap, because it didn't make sense, and it becomes more flimsy each time I see The Desolation of Smaug (I've seen it four times and still hate Kili/Tauriel). I'm talking more of a friendship romance. Something that's been there, something committed. Something that doesn't have to be rushed because it's already a fact. A loving partnership! Loyal people fighting along-side each other for a greater cause. Something that's consistent with Tolken's themes. Hence my title "Mellon," the elvish word for friend. Regardless, I would have enjoyed the film far more without any added romance because the book itself is so awesome! But if it had to happen, I vote for this. Anyway, a bit of fanart. 

Enjoy :3

Love is a powerful feeling. It makes us feel warm, comfortable, scared, vulnerable, frightened and strong. It's a collection of emotions and feelings and Mellon by AgentWhiteHawk allows you to feel just that. Soak into the warm colors, the beautiful details and allow your emotions to connect.

Congrats on the DD ( I'm a little late ^^')! I totally agree with you on how they made the Kili and Tauriel thing too... cute. The legolas romance -friendship what Tolkien would want, which was captured so awesomely here in anthro form <3

Thank you!

Yeah, that's one of the main things I was so looking forward to with the movie (when I first saw Tauriel I thought, "oh, Legolas is going to get a girl!"), and then it ended up being Kili/Tauriel. It was just disappointing and inconsistent. 

So thanks! ^ ^

Yeah, anthros are awesome :3 I love animals, but I can do as much since they can hold things and such, so anthro is convient and awesome for me for many reasons ^ ^

Yup I love animals too; and anthro does capture that as well as other things ~ I just thought that I'd totally mess up anatomy, being self-taught- but since you are the same age as me and also self taught maybe I should give it a try~!
