Absolutely great! I love the way you show Gothmog's body; more human than in movie, but still demonic ;)

Sweet. You do know that they both tumble into a fountain and are both killed though right?

He he - thanks! And yes, very much so. Echelion, Lord of the Fountain, slew Gothmog in his own ruin, with the point on his helm, then they both fell limp into the fountain inside Gondolin's walls. :) He is a ghost if you look closely, in the image, standing vigilant over his foe ;)

Sorry. Must've missed that the first time. Did you know that quote for memory or did you look it up? Regardless, great drawing.

No worries! Yeah - I knew it from memory, though I doubt that's the actual qoute. :)

Isn't that Durin's bane (also known as a Balrog of Morgoth)?

It's a Balrog, but not that one...This is Gothmog, Lord of the Balrogs - He lived in the First Age - LOTR takes place in the 3rd - [link]

Thank you so much! Ecthelion versus Gothmog has always been one of my favorite legendary battles in all of fantasy fiction.

Excellent rendering there! Are you a member of the Tolkien group here on DA? If not, you should be!

Hey thanks mate - I didn't know there was one. I've been a huge Tolkien for well...longer than DA has been around, but I'm still a newbie here at DA sepite my years of membership. I'll have to figure out where to join it.

Oh I would love to see that :O
Did you colour is digitally or traditionally?

:icondanielgovar:
DanielGovar Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
The colours on that one were digital. I will have to dig it up. You can see the colour version (small) at [link] - got to the LORE section and then "general index" and under "Maiar" - Gothmog.

Thanks :) It looks better larger - I am working on revising the site to accomodate larger images.

It was done in Photoshop CS2.

It's a beautiful site.
Perhaps a small magnifying glass icon in the corner of the picture? Bah, I'm sure you have some ideas! :D
Keep up the great work man! I've got you on :+watch: so I'll be looking forward to seeing more. :P
