I got to play around with our braids for a bit ahahaha.


Thorin is coming along slowly. I do, however, enjoy drawing him VERY much (also thanks to the lovely Richard Armitage who plays this character.)

The hardest part has yet to come, which is his fur coat. And costume. And background... Good lord... But first I got to finish his armour, which so far has taken me 2 to 3 hours of work already. Ooph :faint:


Hope you like it so far :) sorry for the bad photo quality. I took it with my phone to show it to a friend of mine (~LunaNueva01 :heart:) before I decided to post it on deviantART as well.

I wish you luck on the fur. Fur is a pain to draw. Also, love for Richard Armitage, particularly as Thorin. I could look at that dwarf all day. :P

Nicolien, This is really looking great! I can't wait to see you work these other textures. Although, I am sure it will be fantastic and I am sure I will learn a great deal from it. You must have some long fur!? Haha
