'The Hobbit' fanart: Dis by Kotorigaro 'The Hobbit' fanart: Dis by Kotorigaro
To my pleasant surprise a quick sketch (abused with the smudge tool) has been fairly popular on tumblr (which is where I'd most likely post fanart) so I thought people here might like it too. :dummy:

Info

For those with some reading still to do, Thorin Oakenshield has both a brother and a sister; his brother Frerin died at a young age at the Battle of Azanulbizar, but his sister Dís features as the mother of Fíli and Kíli (and she wasn’t at all happy about Thorin taking her sons off dragon hunting.)

In light of Thorin’s movie magnificence and his cutie nephews (this is according to tumblr, may as well not argue :P), I got to wondering how much of a hottie dwarf Dís must be; their mother needs a little credit right? xD

Not that the picture in my head translated at all. :x Welp, I don’t draw humanoids enough.
Having said that though, no reference wahey! :la:

Yes Dwarf ladies have beards.
And of course she’d have magnificent hair to match Thorin's


:star: It's fanart, so I don't mind what you do with it as long as you don't claim it as your own work. And a link back here would be nice. :D :star:

She is indeed majestic O_O Beautifully done! This certainly fits my idea of Dis, you really made her look like Thorins sibling, one of Durins bloodline, and oh that gorgeous hair... I wouldn't say that I'm normally attracted to ladies with beards, but I certainly am now :D I love it!

I think you did an amazing job with this. (Sometime the quick work is the best.) When I always imagine Dis, I just sort of saw her as a generic, pudgy dwarf woman. But then, I wanted an image to look at while I wrote her into my fanfic so I typed her name into the search and saw this picture, I was like - Yes. This is Dis as she ought to be. She looks exactly like Thorin's sister and like the mother of Fili and Kili. I'm impressed. And she manages to be beautiful with the beard. I think this is amazing and I'm totally using this as my inspiration for her character - thank you!
(You should do a drawing of Frerin.)

That beard is really freaky. However I did read that the females have them so I suppose it's okay. Nice job.

Beard or not, she's a gorgeous woman ! :love: Her delicate features and her lips still make her look very feminine. I love this portrait, I wish there was more Dís fanart out there ! You're absolutely right, the mother of the two cuties Fíli and Kíli and sister of Majestic Thorin needs a little credit. (And I'm incredibly jealous of their awesome hair.)

She's very beautiful and looks a lot like Thorin. But I have a question, why are people depicting dwarf women with beards now? Is it because of that scene in TTT?

Dwarf women have always had beards, there are passages in several of Tolkien's books that allude to this being the case. But I'm gathering that most people have previously chosen to ignore this due to aesthetic reasons. :giggle:

That is an awesome beard and she looks fabulous. WHich is saying somethings since before I saw the hobbit, a woman with a beard was just weird. Now I can see how it can be a thing of beauty,

I First Saw this on Tumblr I thought someone had just genderbent Thorin, but then I found out it was Dis and I was like "This is so perfect! She absolutly looks like Thorin's sister." so naturally I had to come over here and favorite it. Fantastic job!
