Fingolfin and Morgoth by Gerwell Fingolfin and Morgoth by Gerwell
The epic duel between Morgoth and Fingolfin!

The colors were difficult because I started with a black and white base, so it looks super retro!
You can find a couple steps for this pic on my Tumblr: [link]

This is my favorite part in the Silmarillion.  I have longed to draw it myself, though I lack the skill.  Well done!  Go Team Fingolfin!

This is an awesome picture.  If I had to complain, I'd say that Morgoth's cuirass looks too elven, and Fingolfin's hiltless sword seems extremely impractical (something they ignored in the movies).  That said, I love your Morgoth otherwise.  This belongs in the great but small cache of images of this duel!  I also like the explosive power of Grond, which is wholly appropriate.  Lots of pictures of this fight omit the Silmarils in Morgoth's crown, too, so kudos for that feature!

Uh, morgoth? You missed.
Great piece by the way. I love how fearsome you make him look, and plus it's got fire-like stuff in it. :D
