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
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
