Confession: I’m like SUPER INTERESTED in dwarf/elf romance. Cmon, size difference/odd couples, what’s not to love? Only, I’d be MORE into it if they were both just a little less human-looking. Don’t give me this sexy-dwarf BS - they would be into each other BECAUSE they are so different. I think elves and dwarves just have a huge secret attraction for each other that it is just kind of taboo to mention. So they take it out by being mean to each other.
This was gonna be Tauriel and Kili (only Kili is a lady dwarf, as is my headcanon), but it could also be Legolas and Gimli. I mean, they’re both from races with very little sexual dimorphism, so they could be any combination of sex/gender you can think of with no visible difference. They’re going to build a combination cave house with treehouse tower so they can both be in their element and live happily ever after.
I chose one of Alphonse Mucha’s works, The Four Seasons (circa 1895), and decided to add The Durin’s with our beloved hobbit. I really had so much fun with it and spent a lot of time getting the details right. Still, working with such palettes is great!
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did doing it! :)
Fìli and Kìli are killing me x’D BUT FILI <3 A new romance is born FILI AND DAT BARREL OF BEER I WILL SHIP THEM ‘TIL THE END.
