I love this depiction so much. One he doesn't look old and ugly (like so many of the close ups the books do). He doesn't look over femmini (which so many other artists do including myself but hey it is hard to draw male elves that are girly) or too masculine to be an elf. He looks young, mysterious and handsome good looking.
See its pictures like this that prove that the drow could be in movies. IF they are done like this. And provided Michael Bay doesnt get his hands on them and do to D&D what he did to Transformers. Great piece!
I noteced... his nose and cheeks are a bit pink. I do not know, if that was intended, but I totally love it. Looks like heīs really outside and itīs freezing, so even his blask nose turnes red (well, pink) Great job
