Inspired by the Silmarillion by J.R.R Tolkien, but not a suggestion as to how the book should look like. just my own little visualisation 

Morgoth "the Dark Enemy" is engaged in a very one sided fight against the Elves who'll put their lives on the line to safeguard the sacred Silmarillion Jewels.

Really great picture, I agree with the previous comment. Great feel of motion in it!

:-) Tom Stockwell replies: "thanks guys. yeh with this pic i tried for the motion and dynamic more than detail. when this happens its usually down to me being unforgivably lazy!"

I always knew elves were masters of kung-fu, but to think that the old man himself... well, in retrospect, he must've bloody <i>taught</i> the elves how to fight! Ha ha ha... "your kung-fu is weak, Fëanor..."

As was mentioned, excellent sense of motion, though Morgoth himself, while having a spiffy expression, is left a bit in the shadow by his opponents. Is that a knife he is wielding? The elf on the right is a bit unclear in terms of what/how he is holding in his hands, too.

Ha ha ha... This is really great. Morgoth broke a sword in half with his hands. Who needs swords anyway?
