Gloin... by Artsy50 Gloin... by Artsy50
Here's the next Dwarf...Gloin. Father of Gimli. From the upcoming Hobbit movie. :D

Four down, 9 dwarves to go, plus Bilbo and Gandalf...So far my carpal tunnel is behaving, but my hands are stiff in the morning when I wake up. ;P Ahhh, the trials of an addicted artist. lol!

I will be doing Oin next, Gloin's brother I believe. :)

Colored pencil on 8 1/2 inch colored cardstock paper, with a bit of white sharpie here and there. Reference from the movie used.

As always, thanks for your faves and comments. They are always welcome. :D :hug:

Nice job. The father of Legace is also in the movie. Also if you read Fellowship of the Ring, Gloin's in there too.

I love that beard....
The way you did his face really is nice. It really gives depth to his expression :)

Thanks Rhonda! I prefer drawing nice smooth hair, or even curls are better than the wirey hair some of these Dwarves have. lol!

Certainly not the prettiest of dwarves, but very well drawn. The details on his costume are beautiful. :iconlotsofheartsplz:

I love how they managed to find someone who looks like Gimli for Gloin. The resemblance can be seen for the two characters. ^^
Great job on capturing him!

White sharpie, does that work ontop of dark colours for shading purposes? =o I never thought to try it.

:iconartsy50:
Artsy50 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Me too! I actually thought they may have used the same actor for both, but no. :)

Thanks! :D

Yes, white sharpie works wonderfully on top of dark colors. I discovered it in the art supply store last time I went. :D It's actually white water-based paint. It comes in different colors too! I will probably be getting some other colors later. Comes in fine point and a wider point too.

His face is done, and part of his hair, but then we went shopping... ;P lol! I'll probably work on it some more tonight, but I doubt I can finish by bedtime.
