Love letter by lily-fox Love letter by lily-fox
My friend Claire received a love letter from Thorin for her birthday, and I felt like drawing up something to go along with it. I must have drawn Claire four or five times by now in different incarnations. She’s one of my favorite people, like constant sunshine, and I really like her face, so. :) Here she is again.

And yeah, I know, Thorin hates elves. Bunch of hooey. He can get over it for the lovely Lady Claire.

This is the cutest-- I don't even--!! ((flail) I just love how much emotion is conveyed in their warm gaze at each other, and how he is clasping her hands. Guh, the feels. Extremely well done as always, Lily!

One has a birthday, and a fondness for Thorin, and a friend with a propensity for writing love letters. :)

As a girl (of average height) whose husband is a full foot taller than she is, let me just say that a big height difference ain't no thang.

Aww that's sweet. Honestly, it's so refreshing to portray dwarves in a different light. In this, a romantic, sweet and gentle one. I like it. :)

You know, something I loved about the film that you don't get so much in the book is how each of the dwarves have so much individual personality. Many facets. You get the impression they can be a lot more romantic than you might expect. :)
