Weekly Sketch - Bifur by AndyIomoon Weekly Sketch - Bifur by AndyIomoon
Bifur - cousin of Bofur and Bombur.
The surly one :)

I think it's his name that conjurs images in my mind of a grumpy old man ready to "biff" ya one!

*edit* Texture and highlights added in Photoshop.
Texture from :iconsadmonkeydesign-res:

No-one has been kind enough to tell me that!
I am huge fan of his comic book version of the Hobbit. High praise indeed. Thanks Aaron :)

I was going to say "I love the hair", but the more I look at him, the more I love EVERY SINGLE PART!!
So I'm just gonna say: LOVE IT! :love:

Very nice! I like the negative space on the left - it creates a whole different interest point to the piece

Many thanks. With each piece I want to push the values more and more - I'm still hedging my bets!

hehheh - that's what I like to hear :)
I have cracked the books out again for the first time in a while and all these images are flooding through my mind that I would love to get down on paper!

Don't worry about that - btw - I had a bit of a giggle at the name of the collection you added Bifur too :D

lol - glad you could appreciate it... :D I had it just titled "males" originally, but got a note from a friend whose ID I dropped in there, and he was a little hurt by the generic title :giggle:

I'm not sure I intended him to look surly at the start. Part of the fun of these sketches is that the expressions seem to come out of the end of the pencil without too much planning. As so little is known about the personality of a lot of Thorin's company it is nice to just let them happen on the paper :)
