Thorin and Company - Full Body Rendering Can't Post

Ringer Lotroel has just now sent us an update to his already impressive Photoshop compilation of all the dwarves in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. You'll notice in this pic, Lotroel has speculated a full body rendition of Thorin in the middle of the image. Looks pretty darn good to us! Click on the image above for a large version. And don't forget to surf around our Hobbit section to learn more about each actor, character and more! [Hobbit Section]

Thorin [In reply to] Can't Post

The lower rest of Thorin looks sooo shopped...Almost like some figure from 90's games.

Hmmm, doesn't feel right.... [In reply to] Can't Post

The bottom half appears incongruous with the top half of Thorin's image. While the top half conveys coiled intensity, the bottom half conveys a relaxed casual posture (taken from Gloin's pose). Additionally, the black is bolder on the original image and a little drabber in the bottom part. I'd almost prefer to wait for actual images from the production.

Howver, I applaud the imaginativeness and resourcefulness shown while additional official promotional images can be provided.

Why?? [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't understand why professionals promote their thing in such a lame way...

Clever, but not quite right... [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin: so we've got... Gloin's bottom half flipped round with some sort of shiny stuff on the border of the tunic, plus Oin's belt :p

It's cleverly done, but as Blade says, his position is wrong i.e. his right knee should be bent as if he's swinging his sword towards us.

I would also imagine Thorin will have some mail bottom half...

Fun to have him there with all the others though :)

Haha, it's funny because... [In reply to] Can't Post

Oin is about to smack Dwalin on the top of his head. And Dori is stabbing Thorin while Thorin is elbowing Balin in the face xD

looks pretty good... [In reply to] Can't Post

obviously pieced together but still looks pretty good-- good enough to get us through till an official full photo of thorin is released.

Is it just me... [In reply to] Can't Post

...or does (fellow countryman) James Nesbitt look a bit like George Harrison? Sly

And here we find you, feasting and... smoking!

As good as it could be [In reply to] Can't Post

without a real full body Thorin. Thanks though! Wink

Thank you... [In reply to] Can't Post

...for your time, effort and talent to assemble this panorama of dwarves.

The use of bits and pieces from others for Thorin is quite clever.

wow [In reply to] Can't Post

It's quite a crowd, isn't it? Seeing them all, it makes sense they weren't able to discreetly make their way to the Lonely Mountain.

Shoop [In reply to] Can't Post

Clearly photoshopped. The lower half ist quite blurry.

Lots of photoshopping goin on anyway. Hair, weapons, feet etc.

And finger-prosthetics everywhere.

IT'S A DWARF FRANKENSTEIN! [In reply to] Can't Post

Rofl, its a dwarf frankenstein, it's Thoingloin XD. Nice attempt but the photoshopping is really obvious and Thorin is out of focus.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us- Gandalf to Frodo

Armoured up and ready for action! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love how weta have armoured them up and given them those badass weapons intsead of they way the books describe them in which only thorin, gandalf and bilbo are the ones who carry weapons throughout the entire story, I just can't wait for the battle of five armies, i can only imagine what there going to look like then ( I hope Gloin where's gimli's armour and weilds his double bladed axe)

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us- Gandalf to Frodo
