Default December, 2011: Thorin Oakenshield

Hi all,

So at the Gnomon Galley show on Saturday, our second annual student show, I was happy to talk to one of our graduates who swung by. He has been at Digital Domain for the past year and is about to move to Weta to be a character TD on the Hobbit... pretty cool and he is of course very excited. This reminded me to check in online on any news about the project and I really enjoyed watching the behind the scenes videos that they have been sharing. One year to go until the first film is released, and I can't wait to see it! It clearly is going to be epic.

On that note, this month's theme is a dwarf: Thorin Oakenshield.

This can be a simple character study, or in the context of an environment.

Good Luck!

edit: winners announced!

Now that we have film reveal photos, I really wanted to paint him in the context of an environment. Hope the swinging of the chain is obvious ^^

Thorin and Three Trolls



Thought I'd add in a closeup of Thorin as well, since he's the focus here.
