Gimli, Son of Gloin by AndyIomoon Gimli, Son of Gloin by AndyIomoon
Another in my LOTR portrait series. Gimli leap-frogged Legolas on the drawing table with all his irresistible and cheeky charm.

Forgive me the liberties in his brows and beard - and the spelling of Glóin... DA title field won't allow special characters!

(now available as a print!) :)

this actually looks more like Gloin, Gimli's father.

Hi Andy,

We covered Hobbit art recently on our blog, and I wanted to let you know that we've included one of your pieces! [link]

Enjoy, and thank you for the incredible inspiration.

It's great! It's so nice to see an original design of a character of the trilogy. I like it very much, and the detail you put on his facial features is lovely.
I especially love his eyebrows, I like how they come out of the helmet. His nose is great too, looks very ...strong, I think=) Wonderful expression too.:heart::+fav:

Not exactly how I would have imagined Gimli, but awesome nontheless. The pencilwork is absolutely gorgeous - the flow of his beard is just irrestistible.

I am SO favoring this.

Looking at him now I think he looks more like Gino Acevedo who put all those amazing prosthetics on John Rhys-Davies... certainly the cheeky grin, anyway :)

an original take on a character from this trilogy is very refreshing,
and this one in particular is incredible. it has such beautiful detail!

i applaude the nose, which is genious, and it dont beleive it would
have been complete without the eyebrows. the libarties are after all yours!
use them!

Well except for his beard of course, Legolas lent him his conditioner, right? :giggle:

Fabulous, you make him look perfectly earthy and hefty, but also 'youthful' looking.
And even pleasant! Too many dwarves are drawn as grumpy little guys. ;)

I always considered Gimli to have a healthy dose of mischief in him which is what I was trying to capture in his expression.
Orc-hunting anyone?

I love how broad his face is. Great structure in there; very facetted and symetric. That nose is awesome!

That's Gimli if I ever saw him! Great work Andy!

Thanks, Ben. I really like how he turned out. He's my favourite so far. But after drawing so many baggy and wrinkled eyes its time to turn my pencil to a fairer subject :)
