It was just a dream by Fantaasiatoidab It was just a dream by Fantaasiatoidab
"You cannot be her. She is far away. She is far, far away from me. She walks in starlight in another world. It was just a dream."

I know many Tolkien fans have a problem with this whole Kili/Tauriel romance thing but I really liked it :blush: Yes, I know it's not in the books, I know it's cheesy and what not, blablabla. It worked for me and I can't wait to see what they'll do to them in the last movie (knowing what's supposed to happen to Kili) :D

Anyway, about the drawing now. It's not that good, I know, but I haven't had the time to draw much lately (I'll try to draw more next week, I promise). I need to get used to my pencils again. And lets be honest, Aidan Turner is so damn hot that it's impossible to capture him... :giggle:

:bulletblue: Date : 19.04.2014
:bulletblue: Used : 4H, F, 3B, 6B, mechanical pencils (0,3&0,5mm), fineliners (0,2&0,5mm), white gel pen, blending sticks, A4 paper
:bulletblue: Time : 5h 12min

Wonderful work! And I agree with you on the romance, only the more I think about it, the less cheesy it becomes. Why is it hard to believe between two different humanoid species can't exist when evil rings and wizards do?

This is SO GREAT! :D
Also, why is his pillow made of walnuts? They could've at least let him die in comfort. Lucky for him, Tauriel came and saved him from the horrible medical attention of the dwarves!!! XD

I really want to draw Tauriel from the scene previous when she's lit up with the... Elven light? haha, I dont know if that has a name... but yeah, good stuff. I too liked this aspect of the film. I'm not a die hard Tolkeinist and I love me some Evangeline Lilly, so it was a win/win. :) I think your "Hunk Dwarf" drawing is definitely a better likeness of Mr Turner, but this one's not too bad. ;)

You do a really great job capturing these characters and I wish I could even half as good as you do with the hair!!!! I did a quick version of the one you did of Eowyn with the crazy windblown hair (but I did a profile shot instead. Less hair in her face lol :) ) And I'm working on a pointillism piece of Aragorn . I just love drawing these characters because they're so dynamic.

Also, I'm a Tolkien fan and, like you, I don't mind the Tauriel/Kili romance thing. I actually don't even mind 3/4 of the things they've added that weren't in the book because frankly, the book needed more character/plot development. I mean they're things it understandably didn't have as it was Tolkien's first adventure in Middle Earth and he had yet to fully create the world we know and love, and a lot of the things they've added are actually parts from some of his other books which would have been happening at the same time as the events of The Hobbit.

"It's not that good"? Shutup, yes it is!! And most of what Peter Jackson writes in the movies is not in the books, but that's kind of fun! I mean, if you like the book, go read the book-- if you don't like the movie, you don't have to watch it!

i also loved the Kili/Tauriel thing, thought it was kinda cute. i think it's cool that tauriel was created for the movie, because there are not that much "important" women in tolkiens world

I agree with you! And I mean, at first I was actually quite mad that Peter decided to create completely new character but then I thought.. It's movies, not the books. And I trust Peter and enjoy his work + Tauriel is surprisingly awesome character :D

I wanted to ask you something: when you start drawing a face, how do you proceed? I mean, could you explain me a little what are the different steps? Do you take measures, or anything?

I use the grid method to get proportions exactly right. When I draw face I uhm... I don't know. I never think about what I'm doing, I just draw. It's always different with every drawing. Sometimes I start with the eyes but then again sometimes I do lips first. When I finish toning the skin, I use blending stick to smudge everything together. Then I take my 4H or F pencil and add shadows and detail. Sometimes I take my eraser and add highlights. I hope this helps :)

It was so cheesy that I think I got lactose intolerance from it....
But definitely, yes, I think both Fili and Kili were total eye candy! Oh, and the Legolas cookie for us fans. *sighs happily* 
I've been wondering if there was a double meaning with the nuts under his head - yes, I know, I've read enough historical nonfiction to know that they WERE used, but for this scene? Seriously? I think Jackson was giving us another hint. Heh. Anyway, you did the nuts fantastically. 
My daughter has been drawing parodies of this scene. Maybe she'll allow me to upload some :-)

I absolutely agree with your, Fili and Kili and Legolas... What are they doing with our hearts?! :D As for the nuts, I wouldn't be surprised if Jackson did give us a hint, it's so much like him :D
I hope your lovely daughter will allow you to upload some, I'd be happy to see it :D
