Wow. Can I just tell you how bloody brilliant your art is? Because it is. I absolutely love the grainy texture to the colouring, perfect for the dwarves earthy nature. And that hair! So messy and fantastic and absolutely stunning. It can be a real pain in the arse trying to get Thorin's hair right, but you make it look so effortless! I just, I can't. You are perf. All the love to you my dear. :heart: (◡‿◡✿)

Dear Vanessa
I really appreciate your brilliant praises!!! They made me so happy again and again! :)

As you say, I've given much grainy texture to want to express dwarves' natural and strong image.
Also, I always love to draw character's hair!! That fact may give me some good technique to draw them well.

Thanks again, Vanessa. You made my day!

Thank you for a nice comment!!
I've enjoyed drawing their hair!!! Because I love to draw the hair of characters, and Dwarves have plenty of hair to enjoy to draw it. :P

Actually, it has tied me up for ten days.

I'm loving to draw each character's hair so much, so I'm glad to read that you've mentioned about that. :)
About the composition, I've tried to express the flow of a movement of fighting. I think I've done it well!

Dear lizstaley
Thank you so much!
I think this artwork would be work well as a print (because I've painted it with high resolution). Actually, I've painted this for my personal greeting card.
But unfortunately they are copyrighted characters, so I'm not able to publish a print by myself to public.

Anyway, thanks a lot! :)
