Over 20+ hours, I’m not sure. But this armour really is hard to draw as the scales are really tiny and i had to draw them with 0.3mm mechanical pencil. all other pencil had to be kept sharpened at all times.
The biggest problems I struggle with when it comes to drawing with pencil is that I make my drawing too bright and when i have to make white stand out, it doesn’t. I tried to get the shine on the scales and rings stand out and so far it looks fine.
The leather was another tricky part as again, the details here as tiny, and I have too keep it looking like worn leather
I also worked on his hair trying to blend them in better
I just started reading The Hobbit again. So it was about time for some Thorin fanart. :)
This one is - obviously - based on the book not on the movies. Even though, despite all the niggling about him, I liked Richard Armitage in the role. And I think he had some amazing and intense scenes in the films.
