The Battle of Minas Tirith

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

William Clayton

I drew this back in 1980, it depicts what is to me one of the most dramatic scenes in the Lord of the Rings, when Eowyn makes her stand against the captain of the dark riders. It is rendered with rapidograph, coloured pencils and felt-tip pens. I added some touches of my own to the scene, like the eagle as a manifestation of her fighting spirit, call it artistic license, if you will. I also had to touch up the image, mostly on the edges, and will update this at some future date. Thanks to Greybeard for sending me the digital photofile, and for allowing this viewing of works(He's got 'Chess' too), from his collection of my Art.
