"You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dûm… shadow and flame."
– The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
Wagh, I'm so behind on uploading stuff!! This is a painting from my film-inspired solo show MOMENTS
, which opened all the way back in June 2013 at NYC's Bottleneck Gallery. One of the most loved pieces from the show and one of the first to sell out, I think. (The AP edition is also gone!)
Inspired by the most awesome and oft-drawn Balrog scene in the first Lord of the Rings
installment. Digital painting from various references, Adobe Photoshop + Cintiq 21UX tablet. (The title should be "The Darkness of Khazad-dûm" but dA won't let me put the accent in the title, arghghgh.)STEP-BY-STEP PAINTING PROGRESS:
