Thorin and Dwalin: from a Richard Armitage quote

I love drawing dwarves, and I just looooove their big, clunky boots, and their big, battered dwarf-hands (and their ears, and noses, and beards -- you get the idea).

So, when I came across this Richard Armitage quote, I couldn't help myself. My husband thought I should go for it, and here you go.

(Edited to paste the quote, since the original source disappeared):
“Well, big boots and then fake prosthetic hands which is very disappointing when you go to the bathroom during shooting… very, very disappointing.” — Richard Armitage

Whipped out quickly in a couple hours -- sketched in blue pencil on thinner drawing paper, then finished in pencil (2H, 3B, and 8B). And look! My first time ever, drawing Dwalin! Does that help out until I can draw better Dwalin art, Saraleee ? ;)

I'm so glad everyone is getting a laugh out of it. I kept laughing at Richard's quote and... well, I don't want to say I was imagining what he meant, but.... obviously I must have been if I drew this. Heehee!

There are a lot of jokes regarding Dwarves' 'size', saying what they lack in height...

*smirks* Not to mention, just look at those big feet, hands, and ears... and... I think I'll stop there. :XD:

Seriously though, they have such huge personalities... they seem so much bigger to me. Now, anyway... it took me a while to really notice them and see how much fun they can be (my husband finally got me to come to my senses LOL!).

Thanks for the reply!

Yay! Thank you! Yes, I like your Dwalin art very much! He's got that smile that I adore almost as much as his snarl.


But, oh, Thorin's disappointment is so sad! LOL

Oh good! I'm hoping my planned drawing (goes along with Gloin's for a "cupcake series") will have that same smile of his on it. Heheheh!

And I know... poor Richard/Thorin... *snrk!* ;) Must have been quite a shock for him. Ha!
