Hobbit Illumination: Thorin, vengeance of Dwarves by BohemianWeasel Hobbit Illumination: Thorin, vengeance of Dwarves by BohemianWeasel
'Thorin, son of Thrain. Heir of the vengeance of Dwarves.'

Hobbit 'Illuminations': using European medieval illuminations and bookplates as an inspiration, this was an experiment to create illustrations that might look like they came from the books of Middle-earth itself.
16 x 24 cms, very mixed media on heavyweight, coldpress watercolour paper. Finished in oil paints.

Nice drawing of Thorin. I like the color theme, especially the blue color as a highlight. The pose is great as is the 3D effect.

I would love to see you do the other 12 Dwarves and Bilbo.  That would be an impressive set to be sure, as would a set of the Fellowship from LotR.

First of all, sorry for the late reply; was sick and is slowly getting back to answering comments *hides head in shame*

Yeah, that's definitely a downside of oils (that's why I'm not allowed to use them ever since we have a cat...she somehow always manages to throw them down when they're drying D: ), nevertheless the the pic looks stunning so I hope the neverending drying time was worth it!! :hug:

if I had a single major complaint about the portrayal of this character in the new films its that he has a short beard. I always saw Thorin with his long silver beard which forked at the end and he occasionally tucked into his belt
