Here is a colored version of Balrog. I did it with MS Picture It, so I know it could be better. But it's still kinda cool I thought.

And Nikki your wrong yes they were created by Melkor but his other name was Morgoth and they were of a raise of wizard type-people who were called the Maiar, Gandalf as well as Sauruman are of the Maiar. The only reason Gandalf was able to defeat the Balrog was because they were both Maiar. The Balrog was of equal strenth in magic w/ Gandalf.

I agree w/ you Manuel, I looked at some other Balrog pics on google images and I found one from the movie, IT WAS EXACTLY LIKE THIS ONE, except this one is colored over.

:-) Dennis Brooks replies: "Of corse it looks like the movie version... It's a fan pic! Again... it's not a still I colored over. It's one of my freehand fan drawings I colored with MS Picture It.You and Manuel are'nt the brightest bulbes in the box are ya. "

Cool picture 2
a little note about the gods of Arda (Tolkiens world)
there is one over god Eru the one. He made the world Arda, and to watch over it he made the Valars 15 of them 7 males, 7 females and Melkor the dark lord.

Eru also made the race of maiars they where servents to the valars.

Some of them where fire spirits that chose to work with Melkor and turned into fire demons or Balrocs.

Sauron Melkors most feared general was a maiar of the Valar Ale the smith.
Saruman, Gandalf, Radagast where all maiars and member of the order Istari know as wizards there was 7 of them you only hear about 3 of them in the books (lord of the rings)

The only reason Gandalf was able to defeat the Balrog was because they were both Maiar. The Balrog was of equal strenth in magic w/ Gandalf.

Nope Gothmog the lord of Balrocs was slayed by Ecthelion of the Fountain an Elf not a maiar thou he also died in that battle.....
