Really great work! When I first red the "Hobbit" 15 years ago, I imaged Thorin almost like this!

Really lovely work. I like Thorin in the movies, but this is so much closer to the book :)

Spot on to how I imagined it as a kid, fantastic work.  I like the gold knotwork trim especially.

Absolutely lovely! Very lifelike, and I like your use of illumination. :clap: I'm joining the others in applauding you for painting a book-based version of the character. Is this how you personally view Thorin, or was this a commission for someone who requested this appearance?
