Thorin Thursday returns: Fun with Photo Editing! *thud*


My schedule has been a bit thrown off this week as far as posting, so no Thorin Therapy for Tuesday. After covering the bar mitzvah last weekend, I had photos to sort through and edit and a play rehearsal to attend;  both Monday and yesterday I delivered some of the items I’ve been selling to pay for Benny’s birthday gift. The Google Nexus 10 has been ordered and should arrive Friday (hooray!).  I hadn’t quite reached my monetary goal but took a leap of faith more funds would be forthcoming. And it’s happening.  😀


In RA-related news—I FINALLY saw the trailer. On the big screen and in 3D at our local cinema last night before “Gravity.”

You know, I am still not certain I love 3D (although it was very effectively used in “Gravity”). But I do love seeing majestic, moody, beautiful Thorin larger than life, the magnificent rumble of that voice filling the theater.  As I said at Serv’s blog, when Thorin spoke, I was nodding in agreement. “You tell ’em, Thorin!” I whispered fiercely. Benny laughed. I didn’t care.


And then I saw the poster image of Thorin today at Servetus’ blog. WOW. That image stuck in my head as I went about my business.  Had a lot to do earlier, but tonight I simply had to play with this image of a fiercely beautiful warrior dwarf. I don’t know if it’s correct to call a dwarf “manly” (should it be “dwarfly” instead?) but manly, he is. And I’d follow him anywhere and everywhere to the ends of (Middle) Earth.   The rest can have Leggy and Thrandy and Bard and Smaug–give me the one and only Thorin Oakenshield!

Thorin Thursday: One more day closer . . . *sigh*



Or slightly less now. 😉 Snaffled from FB and Thorin of Erebor. Not that we are eager to see more of Thorin or anything . . . oh, here’s more of Thorin, by the way! 😉 This stunning artwork by an unknown talent. If you recognize it and know who the artist is, please share!


Oooh,  he’s all pensive and angsty and gawh-gus!


“Oh, you are so beautiful with you’re all wide-eyed and windblown and regal, my king . . .”


Yes, I am. Saying, “Don’t be a stranger, oh, majestic one . . . stop by and see me some time.”


“Well, if that is how you insist on dressing–err-NOT dressing, I can handle it, dearest Thorin.”

thehobbit-p1_1277dd“And now you’re looking at me like THAT, and I–I am just . . .” *sigh* *drool* *thud*

Happy Thorin Thursday! 😀

Thorin Thursday: Behind the scenes & out and about



Snaffled from Candy Varty at Facebook. Admiring the view of that sturdy bicep with a portion of the dwarf suit discarded here. And the hand. And the intent way he is listening to the conversation between PJ and Martin.  Never tire of looking at him in behind-the-scenes photos.


RA in his Thorin garb with makeup/prosthetic artist Tami Lane. oh, to be wrapped in Thorin’s robe, embraced by RA’s hands and know he’s wearing such a genuine smile on that gorgeous face you get to make up each and every day . . .


Love Richard’s support of charitable endeavours. And this photo with his adorable scale double, Mark Atkin, always makes me smile.

And more of RA with Tami. ❤

BeFunky_untitled-105.jpgLove how hard he works at everything . . . the focus and intensity.  And it shows in his amazing performances.


And I think he’s proven that admirably. 😀


And I adore the two men behind the characters. I’ve become quite the McTavish fan, too, you see.

Thorin Thursday: Artwork Comedic to Sublime



Another lovely image of RA in Thorin garb by evankart.


OK, yes, it’s slashy, but it’s beautifully done. You can always imagine it’s you with your arms wrapped around Thorin’s naked torso . . . by loobeeinthesky


Animawolf’s artwork–Dwalin will follow his friend anywhere. We understand, Dwalin. We’d do the same!


Thorin having a “emotional outburst” of relief that his beloved nephews are OK. By animawolf.


Beautiful drawing of Thorin by KRIS (with a backward “R”)


Adorable creation by Susikiss.


Gorgeous Thorin artwork by Amanda Tolleson


francoclun is the artist who created this piece.

I ran across some of these on FB  and then wandered over to www.deviantart.com and snaffled some more. Many of the artists’ work I have shared here have pages at DR. So many talented people involved in TH/RA fandoms!

Thorin Thursday: Photo Edits, GIFs & other Hobbity stuff



Oh, Thorin. What a gorgeous creature you are, even tousled and tangled and worn by your misadventures. In fact, it all makes you that much more appealing, you sexy beast!


The latest Weta Workshop Chronicles book is now available to pre-order at Amazon. I have the first two and I LOVE them. Worth every penny.


Ah, those two old friends, Dwalin and Thorin.  They fight together–and stick out their tongues at each other in rehearsals . . . cheeky RA.


Can’t wait to see this scene in the film!! Wet, roaring, raging Thorin–in a barrel. Yes.


This is an updated version of that work in progress by bohemian weasel I have featured here in the past. Really love the art nouveau-ish feel of it.

More GIFs. Hope they work OK for you.




I’ve been busy. But not too busy for Thorin Thursday!

Another lovely work of art by evankart

What can I say? Better a bit late than never. It has been that kind of a day . . .

BJAwGZQCEAEJICcDon’t mess with the Thorin. Really, I don’t recommend it.

BeFunky_thehobbit-p1_4389.jpgBut gosh, he is beautiful. One can understand certain fantasies about him that mischievous sprites at Wikipedia have implied . . . 😉  Ah, kingly, imperious, volatile, angsty, alpha Thorin . . .  who would have thought an almost 200-year-old hirsute dwarf could punch us so hard in the solar plexus?


BeFunky_29-Thorin-EWiPad-July2012befunkythorinletter44http___makeagif.com_media_6-12-2013_b_u9arthorinbarrelgifWet, raging Thorin always stirs that sexy imagination of mine . . .


And boy, does this photo still do it for me! *thud*


And the mane . . . the dwarf’s, I mean, not the horse’s. Although hers is very nice, too. And they could always toss them in tandem, right??

Not sure to whom we should attribute the brawny half-naked Thorin, But I thought you might enjoy him.;)

What if Thorin texted??

The mighty smithy. . . is mighty hot.

Just some things I’ve gleaned from FB and one or two of my own. Hope you will get some chuckles (and perhaps a few sighs) from the collection!

GRRRRRR. Word Press. Siccin’ the awesomeness of Thorin on you.


After repeated attempts last night and this morning, I still cannot upload any new media to this blog for Thorin Thursday. *grumblegrumblegrumble*  So having to delve back into the media files . . . oh look, this one. Hasn’t been long since I posted it but I don’t think you will mind seeing it again. *waggles eyebrows suggestively with a coy smile*

I know how much you all love looking at that . . . Arkenstone. Yeah.


And here’s a little gorgeous if map-challenged Thorin Oakenshield at the door of Bilbo’s home.


I don’t think I will ever get tired of this pic. No, no sirree.

Hobbit-PreProduction05Here’s the creator, looking so proud and a little nervous and absolutely gorgeous, of course, as he anticipates his wonderful little speech in Maori. *sigh*

thehobbit-p1_3572Yep, absolutely, positively the best-looking thing to ever be stuffed in a “croaker sack.”  And that smile!!

942684_569896096375537_1472319171_nThorin, you are so awesome you can even overcome Word Press being so stroppy. But then–you knew that.

Just had to share these for Thorin Thursday.




More charming and saucy Thorin/RA inspired fanart from Facebook via Tumblr.  Oh, Cbeebies Thorin and the lads!  Please note the careful addition of Orcrist to the portrait of Naked Calendar Thorin. *ahem*

379723_364553726979124_761345974_n  And from Tanni Tani’s Hobbit Cats project–these handsome pair of alluring felines. 😉

And this gorgeous piece of fanart by Kimberly from Facebook of Thorin and his grandfather.



And my own Thorin photo edit. Happy Thorin Thursday, y’all!

Thorin Thursday–and a little bit of Lego/RA LOVE



I don’t think I will ever tire of this particular photo of Thorin and the many variations thereof I and others have edited. Oh! Those eyes . . .


After three series of RH, little wonder our Richard was deemed “Best on Horseback” in The Hobbit. And he did, indeed, look magnificent!


And I’ve got one in this character–and the man who plays him.


Looking a tad stroppy–and beautiful. *sigh*


Again, I say–oh, those EYES!


*THUD* *WIBBLE* That is all.

Gotta jump in shower and get myself ready for the Honors Program. Catch y’all later!

Did you say, “MORE Thorin?” Well, what do you know . . .



How about some Wet Thorin? Mmmmmmm. Disheveled locks, angsty looks . . . we LIKE.


Gorgeous, aren’t they? Especially that uncle.


But don’t make Uncle angry, OK??


Turns out the great hair is not just an accident, folks.


I told you there was a bit of rivalry . . .


What indeed? Everybody’s falling in love with the majestic, moody dwarf with the magical mane, that’s what!


And we are all dying for him to take us away, take us to-day . . .
