Speed Sketch about J.R.R. Tolkien's character Beorn from his book The Hobbit .
Beorn was a shape-shifter a man who could assume the appearance of a great black bear. He lived with his animals (horses, dogs and ponies among others) in a wooden house between the Misty Mountains and Mirkwood, to the east of the Anduin.

Beorn was of immense size and strength for a man, and retained his size and strength in bear-form. He had brown hair and a thick black beard and broad shoulders.

I love this character on all races (Dwarves, Elves, Dunedain, Orcs, Maiar, etc) due to his attitude, his streng and 'cause the bear is one of my fave animals.

Wonderful! You don't see many drawings/paintings of Beorn, and I've always been fond of him.

Well, The Hobbit is more like a children book but is a good book and it has some interesting characters.

I love Beorn. To me, he is one of those characters that you can't help but like. When you meet him in the book he seems so jolly. I love your depiction of him. It's how I imagine him. :)
