Your art is amazing!  The eyes have true depth and the skin is so vibrant with the variation that keeps me staring.  Stunning!

I couldn't help but get smitten by this fictional character. Could it be his mesmerizing eyes?

DAMN IT, PETER JACKSON! Dwarves are NOT supposed to be HOT!

The first time I saw the first Hobbit film and saw Thorin... I was so lost and angry at how one of the oldest, unwritten rules of fantasy stories has been tossed out the window. And yet...I can't stop staring!

Well it looks like Peter Jackson's version paid off. From the feedback I've gotten, Thorin's clearly the breakout from The Hobbit trilogy. And more popularity means more money. ;p

Thanks for commenting. :)

Absolutely stunning.  I love how you captured his stare.  It's so perfect.

Its so weird, I started to cry when I saw this picture.  I love Thorin very much and every time I see his character portrayed so well, it just makes me so glad to see.

I usually don't cry for anything but this was so well done.

I couldn't decide whether or not this was actually a painting or if it was the real actor in a photo. I'm serious. I had to come to the comments to find out. It's insane the talent you have, and I imagine a lot of hard work was put into this. Very well done.
