The Balrog

Hey there. Today I did a digital sketch of the scene when Gandalf and the Balrog meet at the bridge. I remember seeing this in the old animated film… then seeing it in Peter Jackson’s film. Yeah… big difference. I wanted to maintain the somewhat “silhouette” feel to my sketches for this week’s theme. Also wanted to make it a bit more simple with block shapes and letting the brush textures bring everything else. Probably my favorite scene in the whole trilogy.
