Bow Down

…before the former Warchief of the Horde: Orgrim Doomhammer.

This is my digital drawing of Blizzard’s Orgrim Doomhammer (played by Robert Kazinsky), designed by WETA, from the upcoming Legendary movie „Warcraft“, directed by Duncan Jones.

The movie will be great, there’s absolutely NO question about it. WETA, Legendary and Blizzard are involved – all companies known for creating art on the highest level.

Oh – and: „LOK’TAR OGAR!“

Another side of Thorin

Here’s my portrait of actor/stuntman Mark Atkin who was Richard Armitage’s Scale Double for Thorin Oakenshield in „The Hobbit“-trilogy. Mark worked very closely with Richard and studied his movement and demeanour in order to make us unaware of him standing in for Armitage. He did a wonderful job, but just because he had to be invisible doesn’t mean he should be invisible for us, who loved these movies and characters so dearly.

That’s why I decided to create this digital painting of him. To show that he is as much Thorin as Richard Armitage is. Thorin isn’t just one face and one body. Movie-Thorin is an idea, sprung from Tolkiens mind and refined by Philippa Boyens, Fran Welsh and Sir Peter Jackson and embodied by Richard Armitage, Mana Davis and Mark Atkin.
