Silmarillion: Of Fingolfin and Morgoth by oGuttermoutho Silmarillion: Of Fingolfin and Morgoth by oGuttermoutho
A commission my friend Joe asked me to do for him. It's something I've never really done or approached, but this was reaaaaaal fun to do and experiment with.

No under drawing, just straight into Photoshop and painted. And I think if I work anymore on it and continue being nitpicky, I'll go nuts. :) used a combination of a rock texture with brushes from :iconthundercake: for the background. Could of tightened some rocks a bit..

But yeah, if any of you have read the Silmarillion, you'll know this showdown between Fingolfin and Morgoth. I tried to do what I could to represent them well. Hopefully!

Morgoth and Fingolfin are © J.R.R. Tolkien 2012, all rights reserved. I believe that's right.

Artwork by me.

Thanks, Joe!

See? I draw more than a few pinup girls. :)

Really cool! :D I love the angle, and thank you so much for getting Fingolfin's hair right (so tired of blonde Fingolfin XDDD)!

This is so freaking awesome! Though I'm not sure why it reminds me of Saint Seiya, it could be Fingolfin's shining armor lol.

That's amazing! I love how you made Fingolfin jumping in the air, and standing out from Morgoth's shield. Very well done ! :clap:

This is awesome!
"See? I draw more than a few pinup girls."
Haha, I was just saying to Adam, "his art has come so far, and is so diverse now; in high school all I recalled were his drawings of breasts with tiny girls behind them." ;) Haha, I kid.
