Hurin's last stand by BrokenMachine86 Hurin's last stand by BrokenMachine86
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

'Last of all, Húrin stood alone. Then he cast aside his shield, and wielded an axe two-handed; and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered, and each time that he slew Húrin cried: 'Aurë entuluva! Day shall come again!'
-The Silmarillion-

This is one of my favourites moments in the Silmarillion, and I'm a HUGE fan of Frank Frazetta (RIP) so I looked at his artwork as a sourse of inspiration for this composition.

Technique: graphite pencil.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

"Último de todos resistió Húrin. Al fin arrojó el escudo y esgrimió con ambas manos el hacha; y se canta que el hacha humeó con la sangre negra de los trasgos de Gothmog hasta aniquilarlos a todos, y cada vez que asestaba un golpe, Húrin gritaba: 'Aurë entuluva!' ¡Ya se hará de nuevo el día!"
-El Silmarillion-

Este es uno de mis momentos favoritos en el Silmarillion, y soy un GRAN fan de Fran Frazetta (DEP), así que me inspiré en su arte para esta composición.

Técnica: lapiz grafito.

That's really cool, but Sauramon invented the hooked sword.

It is fairly likely that at least one orc had figured that out before Saruman's Uruk-Hai were a thing. In addition, in the books (i.e, in the lore), Saruman's Uruk-Hai didn't use hooked swords anyway.

BERSERKER RAGE!
The details are excellent, for example, the Orc with his hand cut off has a priceless expression on his face.
Orcish weapons and armors are varied, which is also plus.
My only minor complaint is that Húrin looks a bit too clean, considering the fact that he's in the midst of battle.
Overall a great picture.

You've masterly represented a great scene fitting exquisitely its drama! I'm just amazed by how much Carthusian you've been to do all this, and using a sharp pencil too!

Amazing. Stunning. Each orc's face is it's own portrait. This is inspiring.
