The Hobbit: I Dreamt of Erebor by wolfanita The Hobbit: I Dreamt of Erebor by wolfanita

My 50th Tolkien FanArt! Motive suggested by :icondownlifted: Hope you like what I made out of your idea.

Thank you all for your motive suggestions! It wasn't easy to choose just one; especially in the 'final round' I couldn't decide between two motives which I both liked very much. In the end I chose this one, for I love to draw 'family scenes' in the broader sense.

Thror tells Frerin and Dis about all the lost glory of Erebor (especially the gold), while the other members of the family are listening with more or less melancholia.
The scene is settled sometime after Erebor got 'smauged' and before they found a new home, so the dwarves look a bit ragged and had to sell all their bling, for you can't eat gold, though Thror maybe tried. He's not wearing his crown, for there are situations where you should avoid running around with massive gold on your head, but I'm sure they still have it somewhere save.

I had an idea like this when DoS came out, but you did it so much better. :) Seriously, I absolutely love this. Everyone's expressions are exactly how I would imagine they would be. And did you actually paint Erebor there? It's amazingly good!

Great work! :)

Gorgeous. Love the detail on all the characters, and especially on the gold and the small part of Erebor that we can see! :)

"... And the gold!  Oh, like a sea of it, more than you can even imagine...!"
Meanwhile, Thorin reminds himself what happened last time he interrupted one of Granddad's stories to ask whatever happened to his formal petition for an Old Dwarves' Home For The Terminally Royal.

Oh, man, I love this so much.  And this so happened whenever they were in enough safety to talk about the details without fear of being bothered.  Balin's smile reminds me of thinking about my grandparents' house when they were still alive.  Poor old Thrain reminds me of another time and place, and Thorin very much another.  I'd say that means you did well. :)
