King of Carven Stone

I donated this portrait of Thorin Oakenshield to the world's largest Tolkien website theonering.net earlier this year. I wanted to support their Oscar Party that was held in February at the American Legion Hall in Hollywood. Thorin was auctioned at the art show during the party.

Thorin is one of my favourite characters from The Hobbit movie series. I wish the movies had focused even more on his character arc and the relationship between Thorin and Bilbo. In this portrait I wanted to capture Thorin's story, he is destined to be a great king, but inevitable doom lies upon him.

What character would you have liked to see more of in the movie version of The Hobbit? Please let me know in the comments below!
