Here we see Gandalf and Bolrog about to engage in a battle. Depths surround Gandalf and he is holding his staff and sword. This digital artwork really contrasts the sizes between Bolrog and Gandalf, as Gandalf stands tall against him. The colours of Bolrog are so vibrant and so is the glisten of the staff and sword against the earthy tones of the ground and stone. Bolrog looks as though he is about to strike as Gandalf prepares himself. This piece caught my attention from the bright contrast, as Bolrog rises out of a cloud of dust. The wind is blowing and an epic battle is about to ensue. The snapshot that the artist has given us is indeed spectacular. The size of Bolrog and just how HUGE he is and the colours of the fire all around him in contrast with the small gleam of Gandalf's staff are magnificent. I just cannot say how much the colours are wonderful and the attention paid to details is amazing as well. I think personally that this is a great interpretation of this scene and is executed in a professional and stunning manner.

The first thing I thought when I looked at this was WOW. In particular the smouldering heat of the Balrog- the way you've executed the sword and whip to look almost liquid, in contrast with the volcanic look of the body clouded in dust and ash, is simply superb. In my humble opinion; any artist that is able to physically convey that feeling of burning heat through an image, is a master of their art! Literally!

I love the way the cold light of Gandalf's staff gleams; and you can see where the effect of his magic stops and the power of the Balrog starts; magnificent.

The only thing I think that could be worked on would be Gandalf's cloak- some more flow of the material would have looked good around the base, the sleeves look absolutely fine as they are.

Keep up the inspirational work!

Mind blown. This Balrog looks even more scary than the one in the film. Absolutely amazing!
