Just wanted to warn you some bastard on 9gag printed your work, took photo and called it his masterpiece: 9gag.com/gag/ad6bdn2 (also that crop totally fucked up composition). Anyway, great work.

A Balrog of Morgoth...

Every time I watch this scene I root for Gandalf and cheer when the Balrog goes down, even though I know what's gonna happen...

I remember fondly the shivers I got when the Balrog appeared in Peter Jackson's Fellowship. Just how I imagined it to be, something beyond terror!

awesome! especially since my girlfriend and i are watching the trilogy again right now, this scene is very familiar to me... i love the way you painted the crumbling bridge - won't take any longer i guess... and i really like the fire, great lighting here! :)
