“A Landscape Made By Time”

Sketch (colored and uncolored, since I liked both) of Orla, one of the amazing dwarf ladies from determamfidd’s fanfic, Sansûkh.  More specifically, I wanted to draw her as she’s described in this side-story.  I didn’t originally go into it specifically wanting to draw her naked, but that ended up being the only way to portray what I was going for, which was that quote I used as a title.  I wanted to show her with all the evidence on her body from the life she’s had- wrinkles and scowl lines, greying hair, tattoos, both scars from war and stretch marks from motherhood.  (And yes, I absolutely think dwarf ladies have chest hair. ;p  Also, headcanon that the Blacklocks use different tattoo designs, and tattoo in dark red instead of the blue-black the Longbeards use.)

But yeah basically Orla is a badass beautiful warrior mom and I love her a lot. <3

  • Orla:How long have you been sleeping with Gansey?
  • Blue Sargent:That’s disgusting. And wrong. I don’t even get– why would– I’ve never had sex with anyone, anywhere. It’s none of your- you have- the nerve, the audacity, Gansey is my friend, technically. And he is terrible, face-wise. And how- how- do I know, frankly, that you’re not sleeping with him? Maybe you are. Maybe you’re trying to throw me off? Hmm check and mate.

A lil picture that came to mind when I read the GODAMAZING little side-fic that determamfidd wrote for me:D There was a bit of dialog there, just after Orla gave birth to her second child- Balin - and Wee Thorin was introduced to his baby bro. 

His eldest slunk in through the door, as though he hadn’t been listening.“He’s real little.”

“So were you, once. This is your little brother Balin. You must mind him.”

Wee Thorin gave the baby a determined look. “All right. All the time?”

Orla actually smiled and stroked Wee Thorin’s mohawk-like shock of hair. “All the time.”

And so he did. Always:D  

In here Wee Thorin is stepping on his slippers and dripping water everywhere, but to hell with it, he’s busy with his little bro:D 

oh my god Dwalin is the hardest thing to draw EVER i almost died that’s why it took so goshdarn long


“Empty Man’ - probably the most honest song I’ve ever uploaded. (also features me saying ‘love’ in the most Irish way possible). A re-blog would mean a lot x
