I really like this, I don't remember who said it but he really does look better in this. His body looked really strange in the movie, like he almost looked super disproportionate, and it might have been how high up his loincloth thingy went on his stomach. But he looks good here.
Also, I was wondering if you would mind if I used this to show how much bigger than my OC for my story is? I completely understand if you don't. Either way, good job on this.

I call him Moby Orc. I bet you can guess why, and if you can't then shame on your tinny brain.

Except Thorin's not hunting him. It's the other way around.

I don't know, Thorin seemed to be just as obessed with him as Moby was with Thorin.

Yeah, well, that whole subplot actually doesn't exist in the Tolkien books. . . .
Still an awesome movie though.

The movie was better than the book. There I said and you know it is true. The book was good but simple, with weak character development. I mean besides Thorin, what do the dwarfs do besides beg Gandalf and Bilbo to save them? Tolken even has them dress and act the same. Hell they didn't even have a plan to kill Smaug when they got to the Lonely Mountain.

Your point about the dwarves being all the same is true - the only one that is different in the book is Bombur, but that's because he's the fat one that's always last.
But the reason that they don't have a plan is kind of important to Bilbo's character - the point is that even though the dwarves act like they're the experts, it's really the reluctant hobbit that saves their asses time and time again.
And you're right - the dwarfs are a bunch of wimps.
But, I'm always going to like the book better. I'm a book kind of guy.

I love books to and would normally agree that the book is usually better than the movie. But you can't just say the books is better than the movie because it's a book. Give me an actual reason you prefer the book to the movie. Now this may make me sound like a troll but that is not my intent, I just really hated when people have unthought reasons for liking or disliking something.

I understand and am not offended- I hate it when people just spew opinions.
The reason that I usually prefer books over movies is that in books there are so many details and descriptions that are impossible to fit into movies.
One of my favorite examples of this is from Game of Thrones. Now, I love the show in all of its' gritty realism,
but when you read the books, you get to see all these little details. One of Tyrion's chapters starts with the opening sentence "Tyrion stabbed listlessly at a grey sausage, pretending it was his sister."
Now, I'm not saying that movies can't be better than books - take Howl's Moving Castle for example. The book has no plot and just flies all over the place, while the movie has a story line and an exciting plot.
The Hobbit may not be the best example for discussion, because most of the book is the characters wandering around Middle Earth. I do understand that the film needed some action to "Spice things up" but I find that the subplots with the white orc, the whole thing with the Nazgul, Radagast's magical rabbits, took the film in an entirely different direction.
I don't mind additions to a book's story if they are tastefully done, and mostly follow what's going on in the book, But the whole magical rabbits bit was. . . special, and didn't do much besides add action.
I'm sorry - This just got really long! Oops!

Couldn't help but respect this guy a great deal. A bad guy, sure, but a very, very brave bad guy. You can see why the others follow him.

He and Thorin are SO my two favourite characters from The Hobbit ! I don't care that he's supposed to be dead - I loved him in the LotR appendixes and I freaking love him in the movie. Awesome bad guy ! :la:

Awesome pic!! If I ever try to draw Azog before the movie is released in dvd/blue ray I'll probably use this as a referenceall the details are here. :) I think this pic has also been uploaded to the LotR wiki.

It's funny, I've seen a lot of Azog's fan arts on the internets, and most of them are taking details from my interpretation, which is filled with errors!

Well, since the movie has been out for less than two weeks there are not many actual screens of the movie yet to get a good reference of the character, the only ones I've seen was in the LotR wiki and it wasn't any good for checking the details. It's undestandable that when people see a drawing that seems to represent the character well (at least in a general way?) they'd use it as reference even though it's not an official artwork. Hopefully they gave you some credit?


ugh, I'd love to have some pictures of the movie for reference! specially of the Great Goblin, that guy is so disgustingly awesome, (I haven't seen the movie yet but I can tell just from the few pics in the Internet) just the kind of thing I usually draw!! hehe

I'm not really into The Hobbit. The time division between the movies are to big and they are not bringing any new ideas to the table, Loved the book though. Nice job anyway
