A quick and pretty old work I did for the LotR card game (FFG), almost one year ago.
Didn't think it could be illustrated more awesomely than the movies, apparently I was Wrong
Well, mind that the movies are already 14 years old. I personally shit my pants the first time I saw that scene, but it didn't age well.
Just saw this card revealed. This is amazing, everyone is commenting on how awesome it is over on the FFG forums!
Well done. Have you ever considered painting this scene based solely on the book? You know, sort of clearing your mind of the movie's interpretation, then using only Tolkien's description as your basis? I would love to see where your talent would take you.
I would totally love to, without the restrictions of a client and the constrains of time.
Great art work! Your balrog, who is quite fiery and very well done, reminds me of the 'forest god' from Hellboy 2 The Golden Army.
Actually Gandalf just wanted to take all the experience for himself, to abuse a bug and level up.
i like your Balrog's apperance ; it's very beautiful
I like your different take on the Balrog's apperance.
Pretty sweet! Nice work
Looks like a Balrog Kaiju
Hey! What's Diablo doing in lord of the rings? Just kidding. Fantastic art and awesome portrayal of an epic scene.
Damn gorgeous!! What a fantastic painting!!
Epic Win in my opinion
They should change the name of the card
It was already an epic win in the books and even more of a win in the movies, my favorite scene from the movies still is the intro of the second where the recap this scene then add the two fighting whilst falling deep into the earth, if you ever get a chance to work with this concept again I think you should try that as a sequel to this amazing picture that would be so awesome
THAT BALROG IS EPIC! *fails*
Wonderful!!!!!! And oh...! An original Balrog!!! With no horns!!!!
fantastic work dude!!
This is such an iconic scene and your take on it is wonderful!!
So true, this moment is just so iconic it scares when they ask me to depict it.
It's about bloody time an artist did his own interpretation of a LOTR scene rather than just copying the movie. Fantastic job.
That's really cool!
Awesome! ....You gave it an epic atmosphere...
I love your take on this iconic scene
BRUTO! QUE ERE MU BRUTO! *0*
