Durin's Bane

After what felt like years of not making any art I was inspired to create this monochromatic pointillist drawing for a suomi ystävä. It took a few hours to create a preliminary drawing and explore the methods to create the windows without it looking too much like a dot matrix printer. The drawing itself sat on my shelf for months while I considered how to give the Balrog a light source but in the end I was too worried about wrecking the picture entirely to attempt it. That is, after all, why my multimedia category indicates that I only pretend to be an artist.

This piece was inspired by a piece of artwork on The Lord of The Rings subreddit(Opens in new window) that I saw once upon a time.
