Signed A3 Prints Available from me here:…

A Balrog of Morgoth! As a massive Lord of the Rings extended trilogy fan I just had to pay homage to one of my favourite artistic inspirations! The @wetaworkshop behind the scenes documentary was super insightful.

This was one of my INKTOBER drawings that I scanned and painted in Photoshop with my wacom Mobile Studio Pro over several nights. Check out prints and the original for sale at my website (link in bio). This Saturday (Sept 21st, 2019) I'll also be exhibiting at Collector Zone's 5th Birthday Sale Store Event in Clarkson, WA! Thanks guys! 🤘💀

Very nice, in the books it mentioned that after the fall from the bridge in Moria his fire was extinguished and he "was a creature of slime", that might make for an interesting pic

Oh that's awesome, a slime Balrog would be great! Reminds me of the poison Graugs from the Middle Earth: Shadow of War game!
