Wow, this is so very gorgeous.

IMO you've captured the smouldering gaze of John Thornton's character perfectly.

Truly love this. :love:

We are putting together a deviantart book of Thorin/Richard Armitage art for Richard's birthday if you are interested in showcasing a piece(s) in the book. I will be helping put it together and shipping it personally. His birthday is Aug. 22, so it will be shipped the beginning of August. The page will feature your art, your deviant ID, your real name (if you choose), link to picture, country, and “Happy Birthday” message to RA. There is no way I can track down everyone on deviantart who has these pieces so help me to pass the word along :hug: Just send me a note with the details if you are interested ~ thanks

wow!!! I love this!! I'm lamely super picky about Richard art, especially with the enthrall of Thorin art. but THIS!!! is beautiful!!!!! I love how you've worked the red nicely and dramatically into your colour scheme yet keep the cold blue!! AH! so lovely!!!

North and South has a special place in my heart, cause i saw it a long while ago in high school and it has remained one of my favourite films! and Richard films. Thanks for drawing a beautiful painting! :D

aww thank you so much, that made my day! :hug:
North and South is a classic IMO, one I can watch again and again,
and by far my fave with Richard Armitage, who is such a stunning actor.

NatAsplund Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
you are very welcome :D It is super classic! i try to make everyone as i can watch it haha! He is amazing! like and i like him as Thorin, but he has so many other amazing roles too! :D

:iconalliejacques:
AllieJacques Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
lol i am always making ppl watch N&S too!! :XD:
I like him as Thorin too, but I think after John Thornton I like him best as John Porter in Strikeback, he manages to play a badass soldier while maintaining a soft compassionate side so well, *sigh* so good.

NatAsplund Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013
HAHA! oh man i have Strike Back on my "to see list" it's a tricky one to find, and i've been so busy, but i will have to try to find it now, it sounds like he has a great character in it! :D
