Dwalin... by Artsy50 Dwalin... by Artsy50
Here's the next in my Dwarf series. Dwalin, brother of Balin of the House of Durin... from the upcoming Hobbit movie.

This took longer to finish, not because it was any more difficult than the rest, but simply because I wasn't in the mood to draw. So I took my sweet time. ;P But, it is finally finished. On to the next Dwarf...Or possibly a Commission that I have in the planning stages. We'll see. ;P

I still plan on finishing up this series, so, those of you who have been following me, don't worry. I shall complete it. Commissions however, are always first on the list...They do help to pay the bills. ;P

Colored pencils on Colored Canson paper, with a bit of white Sharpie paint pen.

Thanks for your comments and Faves. They are always welcome and appreciated. :D :hug:

Still working on that Dwarf drawing, but it may take longer than I thought. I'm doing Ori and his knitted cowl is time consuming. O.o! lol! ;P

:D I'm going to be doing all of the 13 Dwarves plus Bilbo and Gandalf and maybe I'll even try Smaug. There are some other LOTR pieces in my gallery too if you haven't seen them yet. I should really put them all in one folder but DA is being glitchy lately and I have been having trouble in that area. I think they are all in my Personal Faves folder though if you'd like to have a look.

I bought one of those electric erasers you told me about. Really cool! I used it today on a commission piece I'm doing. Very helpful with the colored pencils. Thanks for the info! :D

One of Charles Bronson. Colored pencil on colored paper. ;P Never drawn him before. :) I'm using a ref. from his 1975 Breakout movie.

He's an actor who used to do a lot of Westerns and action type movies...He passed away a few years ago. I think he was born in 1921...or there abouts.

Ah. That must be why I never heard of him. I've never been into westerns or action movies, and niether has my parents while I was growing up (only born in 92 myself)

You were born the same year as my youngest daughter then. :D

I grew up watching westerns and I do like a good action flick but I was never really a Charles Bronson fan. My husband is though. Should be interesting to draw him.

:lol: I :love: Charles Bronson (passed away in 2003). He was most famous for his "Death Wish" movies. He's one of my most favorite old actors...right up there with Steve McQueen! :D
