Kili for Shabby by calicokatt Kili for Shabby by calicokatt
This is actually a gift for one of my friends over on Tumblr, Shabby! I am putting together a package for them to send of some artwork, and I did this one as a little bonus drawing! 

 Anyhoo, it's Kili in his Battle of the Five Armies battle armour. For those who don't know, I really really really love the Durin's costumes (...and lets face it, The Durin's in general Monkey love ) in Battle of the Five Armies, and I have a picture hanging on my wall of Thorin, Fili and Kili from the promo photos for the movie.. . So I was just staring at that and doodle this from that. I find armour REALLY REALLY DIFFICULT, but overall I'm pretty happy with this. He's far happier in this than he is in the original photo this is based on, but I like to draw happy characters, so....

Ohhhh Kili......I am Love..Onion

Ohh thank you!! Armour is a pain in the arse ugh... I've never been good at it! But I guess it takes lots and lots of practice!
