     A random THORIN APPRECIATION image-larded thread  

Because when I was wandering the 'net some of these, while nothing spectacular, are images I either hadn't seen before or can't remember seeing - or just stuff I picked up along the way. And anyway it's been a long time since any kind of Thorin appreciation thread, tho seems our mountain king is appreciated by many *grins*Tongue . Sharing is caring Cool.



Probably what my left and right brain look like *snigger*. Works for meHeart





Who knew? Obviously RA had had an audition and has a lovely voice, but must have been a revelation to know you'd hired someone SPECTACULAR HeartHeartHeart



Goblin scene prep - too bad we didn't see more dwarves fighting up close and personal *cough*Evil Time for the EE and then the DIRECTOR'S CUTAngelic




That's right, those guys need to listen to your hobbit...Cool




BADASSESHeartHeartHeart




Makeup, 'coz I think that doorway is TOO SHORT for this dwarf. But I don't know what is going on here, maybe they were going to make Thorin look more beat up. Or maybe the make-up girl's hands were shaking - I would be.HeartHeartHeart




EPICness even in a back lot. Must be one of those perfectly placed directional fans for your epic hair.HeartHeartHeart




*snuggle*HeartHeartHeart

Now I must share more in a PS. thread....

     Thanks for all those pics [In reply to]  

Very nice coverage of his Royal Majesticness. Nothing can quite match the glory of the Heirs' Hairs of Durin, eh? sigh. And yeah, I think his deep voice is perfect for the role.

     and there's more! - art and suchlike [In reply to]  

HeartHeartHeartHeartHeart











How about some ART? Dark stuff:





Much lighter - love Thorin as a blacksmith and making a smoke thrush for Bilbo HeartHeartHeart






And finally - OK, I really need to read the Sil, because this is a depiction of a being (Ulmo) akin to our understanding of a sea god which I thought was way cool. And it wasn't much a stretch to see RA playing this part *grins* Tongue



PS.

Of course if this thread should be infiltrated by ELVES I can hardly protest, people throw these guys together all the time.

     OMG, THANKS!!! [In reply to]  

So I'm sitting here at work, unable to finish my project because I apparently don't have "permission" to access the folder I need, and while waiting decide to check out TORn and what do I find? A new batch of Thorin pics - YAY!!!HeartEvil I've now added a bunch to my ever-growing Thorin collection (I've been cyber-stalking Richard/Thorin for MONTHS now!), and well, admin can take its time giving me those permissions - no hurry!

So I'm also trying to share a pic, but I still haven't got the hang of this thing, darnit! It's saying my pic is too big, so here's the link to where I found it: http://www.broadwayworld.com/...0140818#.U_PBxPldV1A

Richard with Lee Pace, oooh, I can hear the Twitterverse now! Never thought I'd wish I was Anna Friel, but I have to admit I'm a bit jealous. Anyway, Avandel, since you clearly know how to upload pics, maybe you can add this one to your collection!Wink

     Finally! [In reply to]  

I was considering starting a new one myself, since I'm not posting in an appreciation thread for a character I don't even care for (meaning Thranduil, of course. Sorry to disappoint some of you folks, but I've never been much of an Elf fan. Not that I dislike them or anything, I guess I just don't have enough in common with them, so I find it hard to relate to these particular characters. And Thranduil's too cold and arrogant for my tastes. Sorry fans, but you can have him, I'll stick with Thorin/Armitage). At least I'll know where to come if BoFA depresses me too much (and thank goodness RA's character survives in Into the Storm, since we need a little break from the emotional outburst many of us with experience after viewing BoFA for the first time). As for crushes, I think most of you know by now that it's not just the character, but the actor as well, since for some reason my Tolkien favorites always end up crossing over into real life (not necessarily a bad thing, since like some fans have posted on some of the actor fansites, I just can't seem to get enough of him).Smile

Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day
To find our long-forgotten gold.

     OK - can't resist and anyway luv blacksmithing Thorin [In reply to]  

Just love the idea of Thorin blacksmithing to support his people and "to keep the arms strong" - as a crafty Ringer love that, tho I am sure many bitter thoughts flowed through Thorin's mind as the metal glowed red hotFrown. And I LOVE a king who will roll up his sleeves and do what needs to get done.Heart




So I found this IMO stunning work of kimberly80 on Deviant Art - Love this of Aulë (or in Khudzul, Mahal) who made the dwarves :



Aulë
was a Vala and one of the Aratar, Smith of the Powers and concerned with rock and metal, nature of substances and works of craft. http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Aul%C3%AB


Quote
During the creation of Arda, Aulë fashioned its substances that composed it, and was most involved in building the continents and mountains. He constructed Angainor, the chain of Melkor, the lamps Illuin and Ormal and the vessels of the Sun and Moon.Aulë created his own race of beings, the Dwarves, because he was unwilling to wait for the Children of Ilúvatar to appear. Ilúvatar knew of this and even as Aulë was instructing them He chastened Aulë. Aulë humbly repented, offering his children to the will of Ilúvatar, whom He accepted as His adopted children. Since Ilúvatar had decided that the Elves were to be the first-born race, He made the Dwarves to sleep until the Elves woke on Arda.


And an LOL gawdlike descendantTongueWink:





And some random images that were new to me as well:

Look at Thorin glare! Maybe he is angry about poor Minty having to wear some hot hairy pony suit so she would look shaggy. Mad




Speaking of hot - literally - RA looks hot here, tho maybe it's the beefed-up red makeup they use to counteract those green screens....



Speaking of hot, this one is hardly new at this point, but this is just for me - because the Hobbit trailer showed before "Into the Storm" and RA is just beautiful in BOFA - no small computer monitor does justice.




So I made my own fast PS art w. a filter. Because he's worth it:



LOL I can print on texture paper and tell everyone it's an original print Wink

Come to the TA threads, we had a newbie who just got the hang of it, and Kim has instructions and a simple guide up - might be TA thread 9 but lots of good info (and I graced the thread with Thorin images as usual - LOL dwarf hair gets everywhere....). Plus I left you some info in the old "favorite costume" thread.Smile

Though, judging by all the artwork already in the thread, maybe I should get the mods to move this over to Fan Art. EvilAngelicEvil Thorin's hair doesn't need more exposure than necessary. Wink

     Naw, I wouldn't move it myself [In reply to]  

'Coz it's a mix of pictures and art, and the art isn't mine, otherwise I would put in fan art. More like saving people the trouble of linking as w. images if the original is large, sometimes just grinds a system to a halt.

And anyway I am tapped out for the moment, 'coz I've posted the most PRETTY of Thorin I had before, and anyone can go and get screen shots. But most of this started w. *SQUEE*Heart images I hadn't seen before. Of course, that will change with BOFA and/or if PJ decides to unlock the vaults.Unsure

Because no Thorin appreciation thread of any kind could possibly exist without acknowledgement of the glorious swirling nightshade living silk locks of this Heir of DurinHeartHeartHeart, hair so epic it has its own websites. Lurker would be proud to see me showing this much restraint, tho probably Lurker and Kim would be wincingShocked and thinking "now you've done it, mentioning THE HAIR...." But I shall be strongAngelic, and not effusive for six paragraphs in disagreement that NO celebration of Thorin's glorious espresso mane could possibly come close to capturing the wonder and mystery of it all, the miracle of it, tho many artists try. They fail, tho. It's like trying to hold a night sky in your handsWinkHeartHeartHeart
