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.

Húrin se parece a Chuck Norris :p
Qué épico! Pero mi momento es la aparición de las huestes de Turgon en Ard-Galen en medio de la Nirnaeth, con el sol reluciendo desde el este y exclamando 'Aiya! Eldalië ar Atanatari! Auta i Lóme! Vinya Aurë entuluva!'
Ese, y la caída de Fingolfin ^_^
Esto es del final de la Nirnaeth, ¿no?

Yo no podría elegir un solo momento, también tengo varios y comparto los tuyos, especialmente la caida de Fingolin, es bestial. Ojalá algún día logre perfeccionar los suficiente mi técnica como para lograr representar dignamente esos grandes momentos en imágenes.
Gracias por el comentario :D

Para mi el gran problema de la caída de Fingolfin es tener que diseñar a Melkor. Aún no he visto una representación de Melkor que me convenza (ni siquiera sé cómo lo haría yo). Por cierto, aquí me tienes esperando a ver tu representación de la caída de Fingolfin :) Tu estilo es fantástico y muy cuidado, ánimo!

:iconbrokenmachine86:
BrokenMachine86 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Si, es verdad. De todas las representaciones, la que más me gusta es la de John Howe, no solo es artisticamente una belleza, sino que Melkor tiene el tamaño justo (ni demasiado grande ni demasiado pequeño). Pero de todos modos el asunto es que Tolkien no hace una descripción física de Melkor, sino una sensitiva, por lo que es muy muy difícil lograr una representación visual que cause el terror y la presencia que tiene el personaje.
Muchas gracias por el comentario :)
