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.
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.
