I decided to get back into one of my favorite exercises that I've decided to call Frorcday Mayhem. So I love playing LotR Shadow of War. And I love the orcs so much that I've decided to pic orcs that have been interesting in my play throughs. This pyromaniac here, Nazu he's been on my side for a long time, and wherever he goes, flames follow! He loves spreading fire! I still need to do better work but I'm not very experienced with colors or textures. But I am learning and developing everyday!
Legolas and Gimli for @aspecardaweek, day 5: relationships.
Queer platonic fellowship goals. I’ve been super enjoying seeing all the content this week, so I couldn’t resist contributing my faves. Gave me an excuse to draw them!
Not pictured is the tree stump/stepladder Gimli is standing on to gain height.

“Where there’s a whip, there’s a way!” From the books and film LOTR, 1978. In this version, Frodo originally gets whipped for sport, by orcs in the Tower, before Sam saves him with Sting (I’m pretty sure) so I decided to do a lil sketch ;(

[Image description: A colored pencil drawing of Fíli and Sigrid from the Hobbit movies. Sigrid is a human woman with blonde hair, light blue eyes, and pale skin; she is wearing a pink and purple dress and orange earrings. Fíli is a dwarf man with golden hair, dark blue eyes, and pale skin; he is wearing a teal shirt, a blue cloak with silver lining, green earrings, and a red ring. His hair and beard are braided and decorated with purple beads. Fíli and Sigrid stand side by side, looking at one another knowingly with slightly open mouths as if they are gossiping to one another.

@aspecardaweek day four | worldbuilding | based on this post by @electroniccollectiondonut
Many dwarves chose their craft over marriage, but princes are not always afforded the luxury of choice when it comes to their marital status. With Thorin marrying Bilbo and Kíli marrying Tauriel, there’s pressure on Fíli to get married as well - but that’s the last thing he’s interested in.
Enter Sigrid, newly crowned princess of Dale, who faces the common Mannish pressure to wed and produce heirs for her father and brother, except she’s of the same mind as Fíli.
The two unlikely companions become friends and eventually announce their own betrothal, completing the trifecta of interspecies relationships among the Line of Durin - except Fíli and Sigrid aren’t marrying for love or drama. It’s a political alliance between Dale and Erebor, yes, but mostly an excuse to get everyone off their backs. Here they are snarking to one another about everyone else’s assumptions and the scandal they’re causing.
It’s not much of a secret, and in later days their unconventional “union” will inspire many fictionalized versions of the events, all woefully inaccurate, and give a handful of stubbornly single dwarves and women the historical precedent they need for a marriage of convenience alone.
