A quick and pretty old work I did for the LotR card game (FFG), almost one year ago.

IS it? Wow, that's great! I wish I had more time, since it's such an iconic moment.

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.

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 =)

It's about bloody time an artist did his own interpretation of a LOTR scene rather than just copying the movie. Fantastic job.
