Continuing with the fun of drawing dwarves, I decided to draw Thrain from the movie The Hobbit charging with his war hammer. I had to guess on some of the armor details, and fake a lot of it pattern-wise so I could keep from losing my mind (I'm supposed to be sewing right now, but this is so fun I don't want to stop). This took two days to sketch in blue pencil (straight to bristol -- which is different than my usual transferring process) and three days to ink.
Drawn on 11"X14" bristol, and inked (also used ink wash) with Black Magic ink, using Winsor & Newton brushes (sizes 0, mostly 1, and 2 and 3 for inking large areas). I also used a black pencil for his facial tattoos, and a white pencil for some texture on the side of the war hammer.
