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:

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

Smiling Thorin!? NO WAY! Ahahah, LOL though I remember we had this conversation :D D'awwww, soooooo sweet (and majestic!) The harp scene is perfect and this is just such a peaceful moment captured so well, little tiny Fili and Kili look so cute listening to their uncle :D And of course you're great with the detail of the hair and the clothes and fantastic lighting, really sets the mood!

Hey, he smiles ten times in the first part of the movie - unless I´ve missed one when I counted. So why not showing him smiling? :D
I´m convinced that those two dwarflings manage to put a smile on everyone´s face, no matter how difficult the situation might be.

Thank you! I love to play around with light. :3

Yes, I love the subtle hints they put in the movie. With the stone giants too, you can just see how relieved Thorin is when he sees Fili alive and he goes right to him to help him up. :happycry: Ah, Durin feels~
