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.

This is so pretty! I love the lighting and Erebor in the background. I also like how well you incorporated the family look in their designs. Great job!

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! :)

I painted over a photo of Weta's Erebor model, so I cheated a bit. ;)

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. :)

I will draw Dis in the future, but if you want to see dwarvish women from me beyond that, you'll have to look at the dwarf ladies from my own books. :)

Yet another beautiful favorite has appeared. Seriously, I look forward to your art more than anyone else's! It always brings a smile to my face-- your wit, style, and sensitivity to characters is so admirable and I enjoy all the work you produce. Thank you so much for all you've done, and I look forward to another 50 additions of Tolkien fanart! :D

"After Erebor got smauged". I have to remember that. Balin looks ready to settle down again (Shire maybe), and Thorin's expresion tells me he sees Battle of Moria in vivid colors already. Poor guy.  Another great one. I want more!!!!

Don't worry, there will be more. Something tells me the third movie will be very inspiring for me. ;) Of course there will be also lotR and the Silmarillion. Have a booklet full of gags.

I love your renditions here of Frerin and Dís, they're adorable. I have to agree with the comment someone made about Dís's beard, in fact the picture reminds me of the unseen little bit of beard hair I put on Kizár (my RP silmaril who is shapeshifted into the form of a dwarf).

If and when you do older versions of them, two thoughts I have are a picture set right before Azanulbizar (Dís seeing her father, grandfather and older brothers go off to battle?) and an even older picture of Dís seeing her sons off on the quest.

Just thoughts, what you end up doing is up to you though.

Ah, those women-must-stay-behind motives always make me aggressive... But I'll do a Mummy! gag with Dis and her sons, though I have not yet found a good point, so it will take a while till I'll actually draw it. But I thought of a sketch with grown-up dis an Frerin, just simple and for fun.

At least with Dís, she probably had enough authority to keep things in order in Ered Luin while Thorin was gone, and lead the migration home once the mountain is won.

Still, I;d love to see them as adults.

I must say that I adore this piece. It is so beautiful. And the look on Thorin's face just breaks my heart. I think you see the weight that has fallen on his shoulders here. 
Great work and happy 50th Tolkien pic!

Well, he is a deeply troubled character. And besides it is always fun to explore the dark side of characters. So much interesting elements to be found.
