The fifth battle in the wars of Beleriand, Nírnaeth Arnoediad, as told in J.R.R. Tolkiens Silmarillion. Third work and sequel to my previous works, "The battle of unnumbered tears" and "The Fall of Azaghál".
"For a while then the hosts of Angband were driven back, as Glaurung the Dragon escaped after being wounded by King Azaghál, and Fingon begin his retreat. But having routed Maedhros in the east Morgoth had now great force to spare, and before Fingon and Turgon could come to the shelter of the hills they were assailed by a tide of foe thrice greater than all the force that was left to them.
Gothmog, High-Captain of Angband, was come; and he drove a dark wedge between Fingon and Turgon, isolating Fingon and forcing Turgon and his army to retreat towards the Fen of Serech. Then he turned upon Fingon.
That was a grim meeting. At last Fingon stood alone with his guards dead about him, and he fought with Gothmog, until a second Balrog came behind him and caught Fingon to a fiery whip of flames. Then Gothmog hewed him with his black axe, and a white flame sprang up from the helm of Fingon as it was cloven.
Thus fell the King of the Noldor; and orcs beat him into the dust with their maces and his banner they trod into the mire of his blood."
Pen & graphite work, second version with more smoke as previous was almost white. Necessary or not, I prefer this one even it's messy, but maybe it's "realistic" too that way. However, this was the best solution I came up with.
Some minor changes too, and I managed to adjust colours a bit as it usually tends to be weird looking.
