Ecthelion and Gothmog by Cloister Ecthelion and Gothmog by Cloister
Commission ordered by private person.

The scene portrayes the elf Ecthelion as he meets the Lord of Balrogs, Gothmog, in city of Gondolin... which is under attack by the dark forces of Morgoth, and about to fall.
Ecthelion is wounded and his shield arm hangs limb at side as he stands to face the Balrog.

Like creatures?

It's wonderful that there are artists who remember that the Balrogs were always describes as "shapes of shadow and fire" rather than biblical demons.

Gothmog: " Fear, fool, for I will now murder you. "

Echtelion: " Yeah yeah just let me get a drink right over there and I'll be back to you in a minute. "

Gothmog: " ...What? "

This is completely amazing. Ecthelion's always been one of my favourites, thank you for such a beautiful rendering.
