Another bold and powerful painting. I love the composition here and that Thorin is little more than a moody silhouette. The fiery oranges are very apt. Epic sadness. :tears:

Whyyyyyyyyyy????? Couldn't you wait to break my heart again after the movie???? AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

Now that that is done with, you captured Tolkien's imagery well and the feelings are portrayed wonderfully through your use of shading. I know it's been nearly 15 years since my dad read this book to me (I was 8), but I remember the overwhelming sadness at the loss of with well developed character. Thank you for this, it brings back a great memory :)
