Beorn, the Skinchanger by Leone-art Beorn, the Skinchanger by Leone-art
Beorn appears in “The Hobbit”: a man who could assume the appearance of a great black bear. He's described by Tolkien as very big, tall and strong. Beorn's design was tricky... He has to be menacing but somehow friendly... his savage side must be visible. When he's using his in human form, he's keeping himself calm but his strength is always ready to explode. Visually he should have some "angles" to suggest his ferocity, but a bear head is full of circle lines. The shape of his hair and beard must suggest the shape of a bear's head. His Irises are depicted with an intense orange hue, the same we find in wild animals. His pose hints his strength and his caution toward the viewer.

Very nice Beorn design. I also wish the film would have used something similar to this over the werewolf like design we got. Perhaps they wanted to but thought he would look to much like the dwarves, with all the hair and beard. Anyway, Great work.

Too bad they didn't follow this design for the film version, perfect vision.

Gorgeous work!!!
So much ferocity in his eyes. You made the best portrait of the Big Bear I've ever had.

Do you mind if I used it in my blog, to illustrate the character in my RPG campaign?
