Jewels in the Crown of Our King by loobeeinthesky Jewels in the Crown of Our King by loobeeinthesky
The lovely ceallaig1 asked me a while back if I would draw her something for her brilliant fic Jewels in the Crown of Our King archiveofourown.org/works/7649… Well who could resist drawing Thorin mid coronation (Tolkien you sod. Dammit man, he deserved to get that)

Also is it bad that I read that last sentence in Bones McCoy's voice?

How the Hobbit should have ended. Enough said. Of course they "HAD" to kill him off. In the words of Hiccup. "WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT!!" Oh well I guess I knew it would happen.....
Great job on this beautiful piece! That really is Thorin king under the mountain! What did you use?

Amazing! I love the way you draw his hair, his clothes, his beard, the background, even his gaze... I feel I'm back to Erebor (well, ok, it's not as if I've ever had been there) and to see Thorin smiling soothe me and avoid me to think about this sad ending. I imagine him to look at Dis, or his sister-sons and it makes me feel good. Love 

Thanks for this incredible moment, and sorry if my english isn't perfect, I'm french. Hi!

This really reminds me of what Aragorn looked like during his Coronation. It's such a shame that we'll never get a scene like this in the movie...(Spoiler folks.) But still, it's nice to dream! You did a beautiful job with this!

Oh you are so right, he would so deserve this... and yet. I have my theories about why Tolkien did what he did, but that doesn't mean I agree with them. But things like your fantastic artwork here helps me forget the dreadful canonical ending to such a wonderful story...
Hat is off to you.

Really nice. Although the robe is a bit purple. It should be more of a navy blue because that is the color of Durins line

I'm sorry, but the only thing I WISH would deviate from the book is Thorin, Fili, and Kili surviving

I agree Thorin so deserved to be king. He served his people for so many years, then a made a mistake that affected maybe a few weeks of his life and Tolkien exacted a harsh punishment on him.

Anyways...

Georgeous piece! One of my top 5 Thorin works (because I can't pick just one fav). Just love it so much! Gotta go read the fic now.

Thorin doesn't smiles often, right?
But he's more pretty, if he does that! :) (Smile)

Nice piece. :)

It never came right out and said that Fili and Kili died. It said that they 'fell', which could mean that they got injured. The way that Tolkien wrote that part, it seemed very much like an afterthought, like it didn't really matter. I, for one, won't be mad if Jackson keeps them alive. At least I can hope.
