Hobbit Illumination: Thorin, vengeance of Dwarves by BohemianWeasel Hobbit Illumination: Thorin, vengeance of Dwarves by BohemianWeasel
'Thorin, son of Thrain. Heir of the vengeance of Dwarves.'

Hobbit 'Illuminations': using European medieval illuminations and bookplates as an inspiration, this was an experiment to create illustrations that might look like they came from the books of Middle-earth itself.
16 x 24 cms, very mixed media on heavyweight, coldpress watercolour paper. Finished in oil paints.

And, the use of colour here is enchanting.

If you don't mind another question, how do you get traditional media to translate so well to a computer screen?

Nice drawing of Thorin. I like the color theme, especially the blue color as a highlight. The pose is great as is the 3D effect.

I would love to see you do the other 12 Dwarves and Bilbo.  That would be an impressive set to be sure, as would a set of the Fellowship from LotR.
