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.

Well you could use Google Translate, but I don't think it's worth it) it was a great OOC and AU XD and nazgul's character wasn't too accurate. Well, I was very young then.

It's good to have you back! And thanks for checking out my gallery :) I'm not so active myself.

XD you mean that the fanfiction isn't that great or that Google translator isn't?XD My experiences with Google translator aren't very good, I can hardly understand it's translations in fact XD. but there is possibility that translate something from russian to czech wouldn't be so difficult for the translator cause they are much more similar than for example czech and french, english, german etc.

Hmmm...when I read nazgul fanfics their characters and depicting and their points of view on what happened to them etc. vary a lot. Tolkien didn't write much about them, so there aren't many "guidelines" to help with their characterizations.

:dance:You made my day:huggle:, I'm feeling flattered:tighthug:Glad to hear you'r happy to see me again:D I'm also happy to meet you again here!It's great you are still around DA. You inspired my a lot in past - to do fanart, to draw whole figures, to draw ppl without references and to try draw emotions.

Fanfiction isn't that great) I was very young when I wrote it, in fact, it was one of my first finished fanfics :)

Oh yes, I remember all those Vaders you drew for me, only one person besides you drew for me that much, so I appreciate that a lot!

I personaly am to lazy to write...takes so much time, but one cen read it so quickly. And I was never able to turn my thoughs in to words as good as I would want when it cames to stories. If I write something what isn't storry, it usually turns out OK and doesn't take so much affoart, too.

Yeah, Vaders:DIt was no problem at all.I'm glad you like them:)
I had fun drawing them and I learned a lot in the process!

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

Thank you!:dance: I'm happy you like light here.Cause I wasn't sure about one in bottom area but I supposed it would be more interesting than dark bottom of the pic since it's unusual. Lighting from above was initial idea on the contrary.
I love coloured pencils:nod:almost as I love temperas:nod:

Thank you! I wasn't exactly sure about the light at the bottom of the pic but it seemed to me boring to make that area dark so I risked it after all. I'm very very glad you like especially the light:hug:
