Witch-King of Angmar by great-queen-morrigan Witch-King of Angmar by great-queen-morrigan
This is the most Art Nouveau picture I have ever made, I usualy just beat around the bush!

I personaly imagine Witch King very differently. This picture is inspired by very very creepy photo of my bro I shot some time ago and we both thought he looks like nazgul. Then we saw The Hobbit film and I thought: Damn, he realy looks like Witch-King on that photo! Must draw him!

( textured paper, pencil, coloured pencil, tempera )

I once liked this character very much, he was the main villain in my fanfic I wrote when I was 12-15 (I actually wrote a loooong story XD)
And also he reminded me of Darth Vader when in armor.

Great drawing, it really depicts him as the pale king he appeared when he stabbed Frodo.

P.S. Miss you!

Pity I can't read Russian, I like fanfics about ring-wraits and there's not enough of them. Nazgul are kinda underrated and never get much attention among LOTR fans.:( It's pity there isn't much informations regarding them, too cause I was always curious about them.
Yes, Witch-King is also tall, black and his face isn't visible (well, I might have a thing for these invisible faces, masks and helmets) upon normal circumstances:nod: 

Thank you:glomp: I'm pleased I met someone who imagines him similarly as I do:) I have always imagined him more like somewhat otherworldly looking, pale human than classic undead or dry mummified body or someone entirely without any body.

:tighthug: Missing me:tighthug::soothe: V2 I have returned and dealt with all messages I got during time of my absence recently...I hope I'll be active again.Last year and half was too eventful, I had some personal problems than this horrible lack of time. than I wasn't able to make myself log in after so long absence. Like month ago my friend convinced me to return:)
Anyway, I have to check news in your gallery. You are improving so much with every picture.

I really enjoyed drawing this picture, so I'm really glad you like it. But I have to say the most difficult thing was actually beckground:D
I'm also glad you like how Witch King looks in my pic:)I one randomly shot scary photo of my bro and simply had to draw this. Bro has interesting face and can make various grimases and so on but to capture one which is useful is true luck-he's impredictible:D
