Another Thorin in-progress sketch

Two days in a row? I didn’t even plan on it… at least I’m working to get some of the jumbled images in my head and out of the way so perhaps I can focus a little better soon.

Or at least a step closer, anyway…

I didn’t have lots of time on Monday (the finished inked piece was on Sunday — I’m blogging a day behind), so I couldn’t do much more than getting the basic rough sketch down. I still have some work left to do on it before my usual transferring/finishing, but I do hope to finish it in ink. The information from the dA page:

I finished a quick experimental/practice ink drawing yesterday and was supposed to be working on non-art things today… but I couldn’t get this image out of my head. He demanded to be “heard” and has been one of the things on my mind lately. So I quickly did this to get it down on paper for more attention later.

Sketched on 8.5 x 11 paper in blue pencil, scanned in color, hue/contrast adjusted, then changed to B&W to make it more easily viewed. Hoping to darken up any details for another scanning, enlarging to my usual 11 x 14 Bristol for inking. Not sure when I’ll be able to get to it, but hopefully soon.

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.
