Thorin by Twisted-Melody Thorin by Twisted-Melody
Yay Thorin! I watched the Hobbit last week and loved it! I'm a big fan of Richard Armitage (who plays Thorin) and I had no idea he was in it until the scene where they start singing by the fire. He has such a recognizable northern accent (and beautiful blue eyes!) but it was hard to tell it was him with all the dwarf makeup, beard and hair!

I've never read the book either, but I love the character. He's so strong and noble, but has a sadness/ quietness about him too. I thought he died at the end and was so upset, but luckily he was ok! I don't think I've felt so sad for a character before, I'm glad he pulled through :D hehe

I really like this pic, it was one that kind of just fell together. When I finished it I felt my heart race... I can't say that's happened before! It took about 8-10 hours. I drew it all digitally with wacom intuos 3 and Photoshop CS3. I hope you like :)

This is just amazing, congratulations on your skills! You have captured Thorin/Richard so well! I always love it when you can see both of them in the Thorin fanart! I read the book, but there is just so much more to love about Thorin in the movie. I am so glad that Thorin made me discover Richard Armitage as an actor, he is so amazing and wonderful! Keep up the great work (makes it easier for us to wait all these long months until the 2nd part of the Hobbit is released ;-)

Thanks for the lovely comment - I really tried to get both Thorin and Richard in one piece without it looking bad! If you like him, you should watch North and South... I'm re-watching it at the moment and he's so lovely haha! Maybe I will do another one before December comes!
