New Thorin Drawing For Fun

I have understandably not been feeling up to doing much the past couple weeks. I know it takes a little time sometimes to get back to your old self when bad things happen.

This past week was a little more frustrating. I wanted to get back to drawing (still not sewing for a while — in fact, not sure if I will be attending the event in mid-November or what I’d even wear. Might not know until the day before, or even right before the event), but I still have not fully regained decent focus (or caring too much), and I feel horribly awkward and annoyed.

So I needed to do something fun and see if I could try to draw something at least.

I was originally going to do a quick cartoon-style drawing, but I do think I like drawing the dwarves using this style the most now. I also was not sure if I should draw it in black pencil (darned sharpeners keep breaking the point off of those pencils… miss my old sharpener), or ink it. I needed to work quickly. So I ended up grabbing a couple art pencils. I usually only use pencil in quick outline form so I have something to work with later for inks. I haven’t tried drawing in pencil “seriously” in way too long. It was actually kind of fun! Now I want to pick up some more of those.

Anyway, yes… it’s a bit of a silly drawing — today is the birthday of a friend of mine, plus I love having images like this to use when needed (I left off the candles and other cake decorations so it could also be a generic cake for non-birthday sharing). I also made some mistakes since I had to rush it. I am having fun working out some of the details of Thorin and his costume and how I like to draw him. I still need to sit down and draw the pattern of his vambraces so I have that handy. By the time I get around to doing those, which is usually the very last thing, my vision has blurred to nearly double/out-of-focus and I can’t tell what’s what. *laughs*

But at least I drew. As usual, check out the link on deviantART for the full-size image and more information about the drawing itself.

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.
