Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, The Hobbit by DarqueJackal Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, The Hobbit by DarqueJackal
Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, in The Hobbit. The intensity of his look captivated me enough to dust off my drawing tools and try my hand at replicating the magnificence of the King under the Mountain.

Faber-castell pencils, mechanical pencil, Strathmore sketch paper.

I know I haven't left a comment on this one before…but just want to tell you that this has been my favorite pencil portrait of Thorin on DA all the time! There's sadness and a sense of weariness in his eyes and you captured that so well.

This is so incredibly detailed! It makes ME want to pick up my pencils and give it a go.

 

I love his eyes....you captured the perfect coldness of his eyes. The rest is just magnificent.

I'm sorry. Did I read that you drew this with a pencil on traditional paper? Traditional art is so hard to come by these days. This is absolutely amazing. Thank you for drawing this.
