The Silmarillion: Fingon and Gothmog

-By Justin Gerard

"Gothmog, Lord of Balrogs, high-captain of Angband, was come; and he drove a dark wedge between the Elvenhosts, surrounding King Fingon, and thrusting Turgon and Hurin aside towards the Fen of Serech. Then he turned upon Fingon. That was a grim meeting. At last Fingon stood with his guard dead about him..."

-From The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien

  1. Awesome work Justin. Any chance of your show travelling Europe, I'd love to see these pieces up close.

  2. Beautiful! Love the atmosphere it creates

  3. Gorgeous pencil drawings! I love seeing the process!

  4. Just amazing! I'l in love with your watercolor! The motion of the final is amazing and the balrogs are just perfect! Anybody knows which one is Gothmog? And who is the other? I Haven't read the Sil yet.

  5. Very impressive work! It manages to be both soft and punchy at the same time.

  6. Loving these posts of yours, Justin. Wish I could check them out in person.

  7. These are wonderful, Justin. I'm incredibly jealous of the current visitors to Gallery Nucleus.
