Keter by lily-fox Keter by lily-fox
I went to see The Hobbit a couple of times and fell totally in love. I really wanted to draw a lady dwarf. And I didn’t want to give her facial hair, which I don’t have a good reason for, I just, I don’t know. I didn’t want to. But I wanted her to be masculine but still beautiful. She looks like she could swing a mean axe.

Her name is Keter (with sisters Oster and Sinder). No complicated color, but I made her a nice new dwarvish halo. I referred to cable knitting patterns for most of the details.

You have some amazing art on here!
Nice design. I like the storybook-illustration style linework and all the detailing, and also the stippled coloring.

That looks great - and she does look like she could kick ass!

I would not mess with her. I like the design. She's a very handsome woman. The greaves looks great and again i love your small detail... I especially like the cloak hooks and her buckle.

I love it! Despite the fact that the beardedness of the lady dwarves is a favourite detail of mine. :D She does look like she very much belongs in that world! Damn, now I want to make a dwarf lady. I have a secret love of drawing random dwarves. I'd have to make her extra beardy.
Are you going to draw Sinder too? (Great names, btw!)

I want an ear-cuff earring like that. :O
