The Darkness of Khazad-dum by alicexz The Darkness of Khazad-dum by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Limited edition of 80 (sold out)



"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: soon | REBLOG ON TUMBLR: alicexz.tumblr.com/post/520134…
