Lame title is lame...suggestions of any kind are welcome! :D

So I´ve remembered Tolkien mentioning that Thorin Oakenshield plays the harp, which made me want to draw him while doing so.
Because I didn´t know who I should put in the background, I´ve asked my Hobbit partner-in-crime :iconabschaumno1:AbschaumNo1, and she opted for Fili and Kili, because – I quote: “I love Durin family moments!”

Fili probably looks too old. I´m having huge trouble letting children look as old as they´re supposed to be. On here he should be between six and eight, I suppose.

And a smiling Thorin! :D Doesn´t he look sweet when he´s happy? I am sure that, despite after all that happened in Erebor and the tough life he has to lead, his nephews manage to make him smile now and then. :meow:

For Thorin: Looked at a zillion Google images of harp playing women…say hello to Thorinette! Isn´t she majestic? :rofl:

Thank you! :3
I had to reread The Hobbit for one of my university classes, and Tolkien mentions somewhere that Thorin plays the harp. This image popped in my head instantly, and I just had to get it on virtual paper.

That is what I did with my story, just with words <3 I had to reread as well to get the timeline going. I am the inartistic one lol :) My sister and I have got some good digital overlays with airbrushing going for it's fanart, but it would be nice to be as talented as this :) Great Job again <3
