Thorin Oakenshield- walkthrough by RachelleFryatt Thorin Oakenshield- walkthrough by RachelleFryatt
I've had a few people ask me about how I went about painting the portraits of Thorin and Fili, so I put together a walk through to roughly explain how things were done.

Like I said in the walk through, this isn't me telling you how to paint. You have to find your own work flow, your own process that will work best for you. But I still hope that it will be helpful for some artists out there :)

You'll probably need to Full View it, or download it, but be warned, it's a pretty big file so that it can be read properly.

Thorin Oakenshield and the Hobbit are Middle Earth Enterprises
Art is Rachelle Fryatt- DO NOT USE, REDISTRIBUTE OR ALTER IN ANYWAY.

Finished pieces:

I was wondering do you trace the outline or do you do it free hand? :)
Your work is amazing :D

Thank you very much ^^ Everything is all drawn free-hand :) I'll occasionally match the sketch up to the original photo to see how off everything is, but I never trace anything :)

Great paintings! Thanks for the very useful walk-through, I did not yet start with Photoshop, just bought my first Wacom Bamboo tablet. I will use your walk-through as a guide! I will need a lot of practising first of all!
