I rarely post loose unfinished stuff here anymore, but I love the way this one turned out. This was a quick piece at the back of one of my sketchbooks for an awesome young fan of all things Tolkien.

It gets even better when you take into account that Gandalf and the Balrog are members of the same species, the Balrog being what Saruman may've eventually become.

I think that with the sketch, you emphasize really well the nature of the Balgor. I prefer to imagine the demon as pure flame, without a define figure, something difficult for a human to visualized,
I mean this is the real meaning behind a demon so frightening.

I like the dissipation of the fire on the arms and face
