Ele é muito gostoso e maravilhoso. Now I have to continue in English because my Portuguese is not so good. I love the idea of a drawing him how he might have looked in the future having had the chance to grow older. In his dark majesty he looks a bit like his uncle Thorin. Thanks for this adorable drawing.
Hello! Hope you don't mind, but I was inspired by this gorgeous piece to write a mini fic that has just been posted at Archive of Our Own. I included a link to this piece and gave you proper credit: archiveofourown.org/works/1089…
Oh, gosh! I really don't know what to say... leaving aside the fact I feel like I have something like a hand pressing my throat, I feel fine! And adding the fact I committed the "mistake" of reading your story listening to "I See Fire".... pheww! Well, I think I'll survive! Well... I must say I feel honored for you've felt inspired to write that beauty with my drawing I really, really loved it. Thank you for that
Hey hon, I didn't know I could get a reply back on a note I left here, so I am sooooo sorry I didn't reply until now! I'm delighted you liked the story, and thank you again for the gorgeous piece of art that inspired it!
I forget sometimes that Fili and Kili were Thorin's heirs. He had no children, so his sister-sons were his closest family, after his father's capture by Sauron and his brother's death in the War of the Dwarves and Orcs.
A very well done aging up of Prince Kili. He seems to carry burdens that he didn't in his youth. I wonder what his life has been like.
In my happy little headcanon, no one dies, Thorin has a long and prosperous reign, and now the time has come for his much deserved rest. The Prince is now the right hand of the Lion of Erebor, and he is pondering his responsibilities, which he will discharge well as a son of Durin should. This is stunning!
This is beautifully done, from the drawing itself, to the shading, to the background to the lighting and highlights. Kili's likeness is excellent. I love the way you chose to draw his beard and mustache. He and Fili compliment each other now, yin and yang. He looks like a true Prince of Erebor.
