Sons of Durin by dapper-owl Sons of Durin by dapper-owl
Thorin, Kili and Fili, because I love this family. The longer I worked on this image the more tragic it got.


A big thanks to *sayda for being an awesome patron! This image wouldn't have been possible without her. If you're interesting a process step-by-step of the image you can see that below!

I wonder what drove Tolkien to write them as he did, if you notice the nephew (son of sister) uncle relationships are always very loving

We are putting together a deviantart book of Thorin/Richard Armitage art for Richard's birthday if you are interested in showcasing a piece(s) in the book. I will be helping put it together and shipping it personally. His birthday is Aug. 22, so it will be shipped the beginning of August. The page will feature your art, your deviant ID, your real name (if you choose), link to picture, country, and “Happy Birthday” message to RA. There is no way I can track down everyone on deviantart who has these pieces so help me to pass the word along :hug: Just send me a note with the details if you are interested ~ thanks

PS ~ this is precious!!!

Ah, the light! The bouncy Kili! The "Look how grown up I am hey Uncle Thorin" attitude of Fili! The whole thing just feels really warm. And I adore how you draw hair and fur. Lovely!
