Another concept from this weekend. I liked this one and I was bored as hell so I finished this one a bit more. Knights of Arnor are troops recruitable from Rivendell Elves. (they're Dunedain of course.)
The fifth battle in the wars of Beleriand, Nírnaeth Arnoediad, as told in J.R.R. Tolkiens Silmarillion.
"The last reserves of Angband under Glaurung the Dragon attacked between Maedhros' and Fingons forces, and the army broke and fled in disorder.
The Dwarves of Belegost helped them as their forces formed a rearguard, holding off Glaurung and allowing the Elven Lords to escape. Glaurung was vulnerable to the Dwarves' axes, while the Dwarves themselves wore fire-resistant iron masks and were naturally able to resist fire better than Elves or Men. __ Pen & Ink - work. It took long to finish this, but I'm happy with this one. Not a single mistake with drawing ink, and it's exciting to try something totally new.
Bad sides; I drew many versions of dwarven armors and gear, and eventually I ended up drawing them from the back... Well, I think I can use some of 'em when I draw "The Fall Of Azaghâl" in near future.
Another portrait piece for TLD Hirluin the Fair, lord of Pinath Gellin. He died at Pelennor too. Poor bastard
"with their league-fellows, lords of Gondor.
Neither Hirluin the Fair to the hills by the sea,
nor Forlong the old to the flowering vales
ever, to Arnach, to his own country
returned in triumph; nor the tall bowmen,
Derufin and Duilin, to their dark waters,
meres of Morthond under mountain-shadows."
I've drawn many race portraits for our upcoming Last Days intro movie that will...well, tell the player what the setting in Middle Earth is before the War of the Ring. Here you can see a pair of troubled guards in Minas Tirith.
Leofrings, distant relatives to the Rohirrim charge orcish ranks in a battle.
A piece made for "Heart of the Wild", a supplement book for The One Ring RPG.

A Silmarillion piece... In case you've forgotten who Bór was: A chieftain of Men from the east of Middle-earth, who entered Beleriand late in the First Age. He secretly allied himself with Morgoth, and then entered the service of Maedhros and Maglor holding the northeastern passes. He renounced his alliance with the Dark Lord, though, and served the Sons of Fëanor faithfully. One of those many things I've always kinda liked about Fëanorians - their willingness to ally with Easterlings. I've always perceived it as a commendable lack of prejudice. In any case - I suppose my current obsession with HK movies shows in this one...
