Description

This is Bifur, cousin of Bofur and Bombur. From the upcoming Hobbit movie.

Not sure where they got the idea for the axe embedded in his skull, I don't remember it in the book. O.o! Looks painful.

Colored pencils on 98 lb. Canson paper. With a bit of white and black Sharpie paint pens.

Thanks for your faves and comments. They are appreciated! :D

...On to the next Dwarf! :D

It's mentioned in the Hobbit Chronicles (WETA art book) Frank Victoria (WETA Workshop designer) was working on a Bifur sketch... "William Kircher told us that when he grew his beard it came through really black and white. Obviously this was the way to go for Bifur so I just went crazy. Peter suggested that we make a plait of black and white strips of hair. I threw on Keith Richards' hair, from the Rolling Stones, and he said, 'Great! Now let's put an axe in his head!' "

Well, for us in the audience it's easy to remember!
