The Lord of the Fountain defends the King's Square against Gothmog, Lord of te Balrogs (unpictured). Taken from the JRR Tolkien's 'The Silmarillion' and 'The Book of Lost Tales'. Painted on PSP with a wacom tablet.

his left wrist/hand looks funny but i don't know what to tell you. Good job on the rest though.

the arm looks really painfull, it's the first thing that jumped out of the picture at me.

I love the face and hair aswell, especially the nose, I can't draw noses.

I love the expression in the eyes, almost as if he doesn't care if he lives or dies, as long as he defeats the balrog.

basically it's brilliant.

It's really very nice but Ecthelion was wearing a helmet at the time... actually he ran headlong into Gothmog, spearing him with the tip of his helmet. Other than that, the hand looks a little funny, but everything else is superb.

Absolutely stunning... Especially the expression. So calm, she knows what's coming and has no fear facing it.
