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

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!!:)
