Dis of Erebor by Kotorigaro Dis of Erebor by Kotorigaro
Hello, yes, I still live. :D

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

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. :dummy:

:star: 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. :D :star:

(Also WHAT is WITH dA's new editing/submitting thing. Urgh. I've obviously been gone for a while. O.o)

I can definitely see Kili and Fili in her, extremely well done, the best Dis I have seen on here. C:

I think you made her look very dignified and stately, without making her look too elvish. And the nose does work on her, so no worries about that. ;) (Wink)

Be still my Heart. She is incredible. Perhaps the face is a bit slim for a dwarf, but those feathery brows and the thick lashes more than make up for it, imo.
And the cleft chin beard thing (i don't know what its called) is gorgeous.

I love this picture! I am so happy to have found the artist behind this wonderful representation! Your drawings Of Dis (My favorite character ) Inspired me to start making cosplays for her, and write stories about her and her family! Thank-you so much!!
