Quick (blue Bic-)pen sketches after :icontulikoura: asked about an older Iron Hill dwarf sketch I did a few years ago (which I don't like too much anymore).
 Iron Hill Dwarf by woutart

Inspired me to go at it. No high fantasy movie related design. More north-west European outfitting, from which Tolkien took his inspiration. This is how I see Middle Earth.

Elven spear man, Iron Hills dwarf according to the books description (except for the hammer/pick which should be a mattock, but this one looks more martial). And a Laketown militia man wearing a gambeson.

Thanks J, for getting me started. :beer:  Middle Earth, where I find peace of mind. :)

Exciting times

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 17, 2013, 4:26 AM
Hello dear artsy friends,

I was asked by an American writer to produce 16 pencil illustration (B&W) for her fantasy novell, landscapes all. Needless to say I am very excited about this! :happybounce: At the moment we are in the beginning stages of the project, having four concepts approved and the first drawing almost finished.

It is great to return to pencil work (although I miss my colour work right now ;) ). I simply do not have the time next to some other freelance design jobs, a full time day job and a family. Hope I can squeeze in some speedies every once in a while for your and my entertainment.

Anyway, as soon as I have a green light to share the pieces I will ofcourse do so.

Also almost done with my website/blog. Will post link asap.

Enjoy the spring you northern hemishpere people! (and the autumn for you southerners ;) )

Oh, and before I forget. I have a lot of new watchers and just maybe I forgot to thank some of you. So thank you, your support is very much appreciated! :handshake:

Your friend,
Wouter
