I wanted to only post things that were done within the last year or so, but I haven't been able to do much new art oustide of work lately. So I decided to go way back to 2001 when I painted this balrog scene as I was getting geeked up about the first Lord of the Rings movie. Of course the balrog in their movie was better, but I would have hoped it would have been. This was just for fun and I wanted to paint some LOTR fan art before the movies came out and imprinted their images into my mind. Fortunately, I like their imagery a lot.
