"What attracts me to the elves is that they are not people like you and me. They are beings close to nature, trees and animals. Just as if they were tigers. And my character is an old tree, half tiger half-tree. I would say even a lizard. The elves are being very down to Earth and are in constant touch with the natural elements. And I’m the king of this world. He [Thranduil] is an extremely powerful being. Peter and I have worked on my character for more than three years. What is also different with Thranduil, is that he is alone and haunted by this eternal life. But he has the power to change his destiny and others."

And the final in the set (for now) of my Doctor Who commissions from Big Chief Studios! Portrait of John Hurt’s (as of this moment, still mysterious) War Doctor, titled “The Lonely God,” officially approved by the BBC! Ref images were provided by them as well. Part of my official series, but as you can see has quite a different, darker feel than the others; I was going for an intense, fiery battlefield sort of thing. It’s the Night of the Doctor, after all.
