The Balrogs of Morgoth by Thylacinee The Balrogs of Morgoth by Thylacinee
Morgoth and his guardians -terryfying Balrogs with their leader, Gothmog.

Fan art illustration, based on J.R.R Tolkien's "Silmarillion", and balrog look:
[link]
from Peter Jackson's movie adaptation "Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring".

I always wanted to draw them, the way as P.J. show the Balrog in Moria. But i though it would be nice, if each Balrog had his own character and design, like orcs, ents and trolls in LoTR movie trilogy.

What do You think? Can You find Durin's Bane - the one from mines of Moria?:)

Actually I remember there being 11 of them just to scare away Ungoliath, cause she almost eaten up my favorite character in Silmarilion ;-) So there probably were more of them then just 7.


Its a bit of a spoiler, but they were each just like Sauron or Saruman, except more powerful - fallen Maiars, (something like Fallen Angels) who join up with Melkor before even creation of Arda.

Besides that I love this picture, awesome how you make each one unique and give them poses and weapons. Fantastic!
