Human language is like a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, when all the time we are longing to move the stars to pity.

Alphonse Mucha

"Alfons Maria Mucha (Ivančice, 24 July 1860 – Prague, 14 July 1939), often known in English and French as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs."

More dwarves :B Just Thorin and Dwalin this time, though. I wanted to try  something where the main shapes were simplified and stylized (inspired by bridgioto’s Secret of Kells styled dwarves), but I wanted to try rendering within the stylized shapes to an extent. Simplifying the shapes while maintaining the general feel of the characters was really reeeeeally hard for me. I had to really fight with myself to not break up some of those big outlined curves, gah. 

I dunno. Fun experiment, anyway. :) 

edit: I probably won’t do many more. maaaaaaybe a Gandalf. Not sure.

Airports see more sincere kisses than wedding halls. The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches.
