Beautiful! You really captured his eyes, Vairë!

Thank you Shireling! Armitage has such a presence - I've got the drawing standing on a miniature easel on our tv cabinet and when the light gets poor in the evening, Thorin seems to come alive and glare at us from his lofty perch! :lol:

I'm trying to get back into my chair because I just fell off... Wow...

Seriously, Vairë, I didn't know you were such a good artist. You really captured Thorin's essence. I like this picture very much!

Thanks so much Paddy! I love your reaction! :lol: Feel free to print off a copy if you want to. I should eventually edit it to a signed one. :bang: We're off to Hawaii tomorrow for 2 weeks so after that - also I want to do a little tweaking, more white highlights in the hair, and the hand is a tad wonky.
