Battle of Nanduhirion, part 2 by Tulikoura Battle of Nanduhirion, part 2 by Tulikoura
"The battle of Nanduhirion started on a dark day of cold winter with no sun to bother the orcs. Enemy had the high ground at the head of the valley, and greater numbers, reinforced by Azog's troops from Moria; battle initially went against dwarves.

The first vanguard led by King Thraín assaulted the slopes but were driven back with loss, into a forest near the Mirrormere. In the forest dwarves fought desperately against orcs, and many dwarven lords were slain and Thraín himself was wounded. Elsewhere, the battle swayed to and fro, and both sides suffered heavy casualties.

The tide was only turned when a last contingent of fresh warriors from the Iron Hills, led by Náin son of Grór, arrived to reinforce the wavering Dwarves."

:bow: Thank you very much for this comment.

This style of mine might be all about detailing things so overall picture might look too "heavy", as I think it can be seen here. One can't say where one line ends and another starts; too low contrast between objects. It's damn fun to draw this way but it requires more planning to succeed...

Yeah I imagine the planning stage could take forever on a piece like this, all paid off in the end though.

I can't help but to compare Your art to Burzum's music.

I wouldn't believe if You told me that no one used that comparison before me.

Exactly the same feel behind the work. Sort of.

As far as I can tell, there is little difference between Burzum's albums artwork and Your drawings. Well, apart from technical and style details - still, that makes 'little difference'.

Hard to say, as this is unknown subject to me - but I can say that this is the first time I hear about this kind of reference ;)

But it's true that familiar aspects can be found from strange places.
