Why is snowing around him?
Why is he having a sleeveless mail armor?
Where is he?
Why is he standing there anyway?
Is that an ax, or a warhammer?
Where are his trademark golden chain, sky blue hood, and long beard?
...
Luckily, your picture is so COOL, that I don't really give a damn bout those unanswered questions. :-)
Great job!

I forgot about the blue hood, but I'm glad you like it :)

If they ever make a remake of The Hobbit film(s) in the future - please, send the filmmakers this picture as a guide how Thorin should look like.

A wonderful pose, wonderful colors, and wonderful details (chainmail shirt, for example).
The helmet-crown also stands out.

One of my Top 3 all time favourite depictions of Thorin Oakenshield (and very close to my book vision too).

Your version > overly pretty new movie version. And much closer to what I had in mind when I read the book, all the years ago. Love the strength and majesty you convey.

Thank you. :) I'm also more into "normal" dwarves, like he did in LotR - Gimli was awesome. Those new ones remind me more of gnomes :D

You,Sir, just won my axe on your side! There are only a couple of real dwarves in this movie, sadly thought Thorin is not one of them. A bunch of potheads and hippies they are.

Thank you, Sir :) and there are some great dwarves there, in the intro of the movie mainly - amazing designs and details, but later the main characters are ... cartoon-like. Children-book like. And it goes with a disonance to all the brutality and fights that are going on.

yeah, it's my version of Thorin Oakenshield. I'm more into Gimli sorta dwarves, instead of funny goblinish dwarves Jackson starred in Hobbit :)
