Sauron the Necromancer by BrokenMachine86 Sauron the Necromancer by BrokenMachine86

During the Third Age, after the One Ring was lost, a shadow fell on the southern part of Mirkwood. It was Sauron, the Necromancer of Dol Guldur.

Because it was thought at first that he was one of the Nazgûl, I tried to make him look alike.

Technique: graphite pencil.


Durante la Tercera Edad, luego de que el Anillo Único se perdiera, una sombra cayó en la parte sur del Bosque Negro. Era Sauron, el Nigromante de Dol Guldur.

Ya que se pensaba al principio que se trataba de uno de los Nazgûl, traté de hacerlo parecido.

Técnica: lapiz grafito.

What's totally lost on the films (though I guess the Hobbit is making up for that somewhat) is that Sauron DID in fact rebuild his body but lost a tremendous amount of his power with the loss of the ring. When he reshaped himself he became the Necromancer where he was attempting to recreate the power of the ring because he himself thought it lost for eternity. Even by the LOTR books it was hinted he had a shadow form that sat in the Dark Tower and used his power to create an all seeing eye (for fat lot of good it did him haha).
Anyway this is a great rendition

That's true! and I'm really looking forward to see the Necromancer in the next Hobbit film, it's going to be awesome!

Well with Sherlock voicing him and Smaug I can only imagine how awesome it will be

Hah! That's the same exact line of thought I had. They thought he was a Nazgul so he probably looked a bit like one. Apparently Games Workshop felt the same.
