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 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!
Sumup: At the same time, the Trees mingled, and Ungoliant and Melkor came forth to Ezellohar, where the Trees stood. Melkor wounded each Tree with his spear and their sap poured forth, and Ungoliant drank them until they were dried and withered, swelling to a size that even Melkor feared and putting out clouds of darkness.
