Death of Fingon by tuuliky Death of Fingon by tuuliky
The Balrog Gothmog, High-Captain of Angband, cut a path between Fingon and Turgon, isolating Fingon and forcing Turgon and his army to retreat towards the Fen of Serech. Turning his attention to Fingon, Gothmog killed all Fingon's personal guard, and Fingon duelled with Gothmog until a second Balrog caught Fingon in a fiery whip. Gothmog took the opportunity this presented to strike a killing blow at Fingon's head...

This is an amazingly gorgeous pic! I really like your balrog design; it's appropriately demonic, with just the right amount of evil glee on Gothmog's face. This is a Gothmog you love to hate - cheering for Ecthelion so hard right now. :+fav: cause you deserve it!

How come I never faved this?
It is so dramatic and intense. The flames, the lightning... all that is so vivid, I can almost feel the heat. Fingon's pose is just heartbraking... to see him reaching for his sword in that last desperate attempt... it breaks my heart.
And that huge hammer:fear: I agree with Ritiakaramne; with something so big, you could as well cut him in half.
