Bofur - Posetively the sweetest dwarf of them all.
(Played by James Nesbitt.)

So, I did it guys! I managed to draw something else than elves :giggle: And I must say...
These roughed dwarves with all their nifty accessories, beards and charisma, bring a lot to the drawing table!

I drew him in a larger scale than the first ones in this new series of mine,(I neeeed to get those fine lines and eyelashes down, tee hee!),
and I'll continue working in this scale as I dig through Tolkien's creatures :)

I really enjoyed drawing this lad, and I'm excited to throw myself over yet another hairy dwarf! :lol:
And who might that be, I wonder...?

It's all pencil work and I added a digital filter to the finished product.

*Size: A4
*7-ish hours.
*Mechanical pencil 0.7
*Pencil 4B, 4B, B8.
* Smudge stick thingy

Hope you like it!

What a fabulous portrait! The sepia tone just completes it, looks like an artist straight out of Middle Earth was commissioned for such a piece.

Yeah, Bofur is a sweetie. I know he didn't MEAN to scare Bilbo into fainting, hahaha. He's just... bluntly honest, which is rather endearing.

This is incredibly well drawn ! Very true-to-life! :clap:
Could you tell me how you blend your traditional drawing and the parchment texture together please? I tried to do it too with some of my drawings but I don't think it has the same effect >.<

Im not very pleased about look of some dwarfs in film, especialy this. Some look very comical, and dont have larger beards. But i hope that he will look like true warriors when reach erebor and his treasures.
Your work is very well.
