Thorin Oakenshield - WIP by Cataclysm-X Thorin Oakenshield - WIP by Cataclysm-X
Find more of my pencil work on:
FACEBOOK :bulletblue: TWITTER

:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:


The Lord of the Rings made me draw portraits. After 10 years I still can't get enough of either drawing or the Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit :laughing:


:bulletblue: Left: original drawing, which I like the most
:bulletblue: Right: vintage version, which is more The Hobbit-esque


I only got 10% done. In the end it will be a full body portrait + detailed background.


So far it was mostly drawn with HB, B & 2B 0.3mm mechanical pencils + 6B regular pencil.
I used a used tortillion for the light shading.

Approx 12 hours of work so far. :phew:

Enjoy my dear hobbitses..! :blowkiss:

Wow, that's really good! I also really like LOTR & the Hobbit.
Have you read the books? I've read the Hobbit and am reading the Fellowship of the Ring - you get a lot more in the books than the movies but both are really good!

Like I REALLY love you!!
I was just re-reading The Hobbit and suddenly "poof"!
A wild Thorin appears to be drawn!
....
It's like you're reading my actions... >_>

I would be suspicious of you if it weren't for the fact that you're so gosh darn talented


Can't wait to see the finished project...!
