Hello, yes, I still live.
I've been trying for MONTHS to redraw Dís ever since that one accidental sketch in December
with no luck, and suddenly stupid doodling last night turned into the only success(ish) so far. Apparently when I want to draw humans (or in this case Dwarf women) my tablet just poops everywhere, and when I don't intend to it only takes me an hour to do the bulk of it, without a reference. Having said that, there will definitely be weird anatomy going on in there.
P.S. Dís is Thorin Oakenshield's sister, for some context. Mother of Kíli and Fíli. The Hobbit movie? Yeah that. Except she wasn't in it. To be fair Tolkien didn't mention Dwarf ladies much, Dís is the only one ever named.
Tried to make her an attractive dwarfy ladeh (because her sons are so pretty, and they needed to get it from somewhere) without making her elfy. Not sure if worked.Yes Dwarf ladies have beards.
P.P.S. Giving a female an Armitage nose is difficult.
And I have the most inconsistent drawing style ever. Woe is me.
It's fanart, so I don't mind what you do with it as long as you don't edit it or claim it as your own work. And a link back here would be nice.
(Also WHAT is WITH dA's new editing/submitting thing. Urgh. I've obviously been gone for a while. O.o)
