LOTR: Balrog by Arkis LOTR: Balrog by Arkis
Commission I did about some wizard and a demon or something. Someone should totally film this, it would win like, 11 Oscars or something.

This is going to be turned into a big 'ol poster for someones birthday! The actual image is... big. Like, really big. Almost 9000 pixels wide...

I found this on a google search a good while back, and could never track it down to its original source. Glad I finally found you, because this is utterly fantastic. One of my favorite Balrog shots ever.

The face is more human-skull-y than usual, but that's actually pretty cool.

A beautiful picture!!!! I like a lot the sword!
Keep it up.
(I don't know why but I have a strange feeling that Ian McKellen will be a perfect candidate for the wizard in your picture)

Reminds me of a movie I've seen...Can't put my finger on it, though.

Anyway, incredible work the Shadow and the Flame is always kinda tricky to represent, but you've done very well.

Well done!
