At Sammath Naur - LOTR by wynahiros At Sammath Naur - LOTR by wynahiros
"From his tight niche Sam could see the beasts dive and flap over the liquid waves, screeching at the searing heat burning their thin wings. The wraiths were matched in a battle of wills as they gripped the reins and pulled at the beasts' foaming bits. One dove and flew close over the pathway that had led Sam into the accursed place; its talons spread wide, piercing the air as it raced past. It had nearly collided with the far wall when Sam saw it rear back and clutch something between its claws. " (from "The Claiming of the Ring", by Europanya)

Another illustration for Europanya's fanfic. Fellbeasts are fun to draw (non-movie-verse here), although I changed it so that they descend from the top of Mount Doom, rather than fly in through the doorway. And Sam is like, barely visible. *curses her bad vision*

Yup.

Materials: Mechanical Pencil.

Greaeat work on yoru perspective and the creature's design is drool-inducing :drool: :)
I personally like that Sam looks so small and is barely visible since I think it goves the monster a more mencing air ;D

mvodak Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2007
right, the perspective is the most dominant thing at this pic. because the claws and beak are so dark, and the overall shading is so precise, the 3D efect really works. I like it very much.
I also noticed those two little figures up there on the mountain... details.. love that :)
If I were to change something in this pic, I would change the nazguls posture so that it is obvious from the first look that it is there, dark and ominous. the other thing would be the "face" of the beast - could be more ... living, so to say... with eyes or something, not just big beak.
overall... love it... favourite
