Oin... by Artsy50 Oin... by Artsy50
And here is Oin, brother of Gloin... From the upcoming Hobbit movie... :D

This was fun to draw. I wasn't sure about the blue paper, but it seems to have worked out well. :)

Wiry, frizzy hair is not my favorite thing to draw, but I seem to be doing ok, I guess. ;P ...He really needs some conditioner for his hair. lol! ;P

Colored pencil on 8 1/2 x 11 98 lb. Canson paper. with a bit of black and white Sharpie paint pens.

On to my next Dwarf...not sure who just yet.

Thanks for your faves and comments. They are, as always appreciated. :D :hug:

Blue paper rocks. Have you tried MiTientes paper? I love it, with Prismacolor pencils.

No, I haven't. I'll have to look for that. I'm not so crazy about the Prismacolor pencils though, for the simple reason that they tend to break, constantly. :frustrated: ...very annoying. I love the texture of them, but they always break, more so than any of my other pencils.

Great! I can imagine the hair must have been hell to draw.
Today I looked them all up (the 13 dwarves, I mean) and watched the trailer of the Hobbit movie.
Trailer was not very impressive. The dwarves however are.
I can recognise your dwarves now :D, love it :heart::heart::heart:

Thanks! :d Yes, now that it's done I think so too. I'd originally wanted to use a grey paper but I didn't have any at the time. I restocked my colored paper supply yesterday so I now have ample to choose from. :)

So Cool! I am really enjoying this set. I am purposely avoiding watching any of the promos to the movies just so I can get the "Oh wow" feel of the movie. Your renders are fantastic. I am just glad that Jackson is not making the dwarves too silly, bumbling, cruel and crude looking, like others have done. Again great work and I can not wait for the next.

Thanks very much! :D :hug: I'm so glad you like it. I hadn't thought to do all of them when I started, but now I'm glad I am. It's fun to do all of the different kinds of hair and costumes and the variety of masculine faces, old and young. All the textures are challenging too. Great practice anyway. ;P I have been asked to do Bofur next, so that is who I'll be working on today. If all goes well, I'll hopefully be submitting it tonight. Have a great day! :D

LOL. And I was going to say Bofur as well. Or Bombor.

Artsy50 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Great minds think alike. :D I think I'm going for Bifur tomorrow, then Bombor. Since you haven't seen the trailers I won't spoil it with the reason why, just suffice it to say Bifur's character is "different". ;P I seem to be doing them in groups of brothers. ;P

yeah, I never thought about it, but Gimli does indeed have an uncle...but knowing Dwarves, it's not surprising

and a lot of folks don't realize that a LOT of time went by after The Hobbit happened, and yet Gimli's dad and uncle are still alive, though white-haired, still hale. Dwarves live longer, dontcha know.

Oin dies in fact in by 'The Watcher in the Water' in Moria together with Balin and Ori. Sad.

Didn't quite finish drawing Bofur last night. The details are time consuming on this one. I didn't think it would take so long.

A dwarf's hair is no more complicated than say a bearded Scotsman's or a pirate's lol
