Dont take me wrong, I like Thorin a lot too, and when I say he is not inspirational I mean as a role model, to his own he is very inspirational of course. Hahhah I love your description of Thorin
I never heard about this book before (things like this don't come by easily here) but it got me very interested!
It is no secret that dwarves are my favorite and that I consider your renditions of the subject the absolute best around, and that this costume book project is the best Tolkien related project I ever seen, so you can imagine how much I am looking forward to see it coming to be.
This comparison of all different social classes in just one panel will be so great! And you have the rare combo of deep knowledge of history and human nature as well as a sensitive and keen eye to detail and hidden between the lines information to make another masterpiece for sure!
It is great to see you working a lot and so motivated and growing! Keep up the inspirational work my friend!
