Some Kind We Never Forgive- Thorin Oakenshield by RachelleFryatt Some Kind We Never Forgive- Thorin Oakenshield by RachelleFryatt
"Some folk we never forget
Some kind we never forgive
Haven’t seen the back of us yet
We’ll fight as long as we live
All eyes on the hidden door
To the Lonely Mountain borne
We’ll ride in the gathering storm
Until we get our long-forgotten gold"


Thorin Oakenshield, played by Richard Armitage.

I was in secondary school when Lord of the Rings came out. I was doing my GCSE's at the time, one of which was Art. For one of our projects we had to do a couple of portraits of someone who inspired us, and being the massive fan girl that I was (and still am!), I ended up doing about 40+ portraits of various LOTR characters.

So there was no way that I could resist doing some Hobbit fan art. It's been a long time coming, but my god was the film worth the wait. It took me back to younger years, and I dare say has brought the fan girl out in me again!

Logged in just to add this to my favorites. I could go and go on about the technicalities from this piece and how good a job you did, but for now I'm still too much in awe, so I'll stick with "Awesome job". Makes me wanna go paint myself ^^

We are putting together a deviantart book of Thorin/Richard Armitage art for Richard's birthday if you are interested in showcasing a piece(s) in the book. I will be helping put it together and shipping it personally. His birthday is Aug. 22, so it will be shipped the beginning of August. The page will feature your art, your deviant ID, your real name (if you choose), link to picture, country, and “Happy Birthday” message to RA. There is no way I can track down everyone on deviantart who has these pieces so help me to pass the word along :hug: Just send me a note with the details if you are interested ~ thanks

Thorin's expression looks great here :D I love the little tiny strands of lighter hair, it gives it great dimension! and the flecks of pale green in the background is a lovely touch too :)
Also the fur is really impressive! You must have great patience :D

Thank you very much! :D The fur was one of the hardest parts, I usually cut corners with fur but couldn't this time, so it was good practice! And it sounds daft, but doing the individual strands of hair in portraits is one of my favourite parts XD
