Fingolfin and Morgoth by juliedillon Fingolfin and Morgoth by juliedillon

The battle between Fingolfin, High King of the Noldor in Beleriand, and Morgoth, the Dark Foe of the World, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion

“For the rocks rang with the shrill music of Fingolfin’s horn, and his voice came keen and clear down into the depths of Angband; and Fingolfin named Morgoth craven, and lord of slaves. Therefore Morgoth came, climbing slowly from his subterranean throne, and the rumour of his feet was like thunder underground. And he issued forth clad in black armour; and he stood before the King like a tower, iron-crowned, and his vast shield, sable unblazoned, cast a shadow over him like a stormcloud. But Fingolfin gleamed beneath it as a star; for his mail was overlaid with silver, and his blue shield was set with crytals; and he drew his sword Ringil, that glittered ice.” - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Bow down before the Dark Lord!

Awesome work of art; I imagined Fingolfin to be white instead of blue, but it's looking good nonetheless! :D

Did you make Fingolfin left handed or was he like that in the book too?

I didn't think much of it either way, I just ended up flipping the canvas in this direction because I liked how it looked, and the sword ended up on that side. Maybe he's ambidextrous.

Excellent rendering of the combat, it is very Frazetta-like in the contrast between foreground protagonist & background antagonist.
