An Unexpected Party by fresco-child An Unexpected Party by fresco-child
“We are met to discuss our plans, our ways, means, policy and devices. We shall soon before the break of day start on our long journey, a journey from which some of us, or perhaps all of us (except our friend and counsellor, the ingenious wizard Gandalf) may never return”

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973); The Hobbit: An Unexpected Party; pg. 17

Allthough his beard is still on the short and dark side of the old dwarf spectrum :) , hes waaay better than what we get to see in the movies. Great work!

JJR Tolkien would be proud of as good as Alan Lee any day.

What a terrific rendition of Thorin II Oakenshield.  He has such majesty; it is very easy to believe he was born to be a king.

Wonderful! This is very much how I imagined dwarves. :) Though I'm wondering why so many people think the movie influenced you when you uploaded this in 2011 and I don't really see any similarity other than the fur on his cloak. XD

simply stunning!!! I'm imaginig that could be how will Thorin look like in the future as a crowned King Under the Mountain:) as for the beard-the movie Thorin has reason for cutting his short that is very in-character for him. but nevertheless this picture is AWESOME!!:)

An excellent mix of book-Thorin and movie-Thorin.
It proves that they COULD have make movie-Thorin's beard longer, and still have him be an expression-full character, and an eye-candy for women.
The crown is a lovely detail, as well as that Dwarf next to him, who might be Fili or Kili.

That's how movie Thorin should have looked!
Richard Armitage is a great actor, but they really could (and should) have gave him a longer beard.
The other details are amazing too - the only thing I would change is that there be dark outside, like in the book (although, this could represent the morning after, just before the Company goes on a journey).

Best portrait of Thorin I've ever seen. I love how you matched elements of movie and book version of this character. I liked the movie, acting and clothes were perfect, but "I've found his lack of beard disturbing", in my opinion you "fixed" it well.

In my opinion, this Thorin looks better than the one in the current Peter Jackson film. Not that I hate theirs, but yours is better in a couple ways.
