Upper armories of the Deep by Tulikoura Upper armories of the Deep by Tulikoura
Days, weeks and months passed. Balin has set up his seat in the Chamber of Mazarbul, and ruled Moria as his kingdom.

After clearing the halls and setting a watch to the Great Gate, dwarves started to explore this old kingdom. Moria has been looted many times by orcs after dwarves fled, but Balin's colony managed to gather treasures and many precious heirlooms. Among them were Durin's Axe and Helm, which were lost when Kingdom of Khazad-Dûm was deserted a thousand years ago. These Balin, now entitled as Lord of Moria, took for his own.

Ķin, son of Grķin, went to seek for the upper armories of the Third Deep. It was a dark place, and air there wasn't good; old shafts were blocked by filth and dirt. But the deeper they went, the more they found; from the armories treasures, like well-forged truesilver helm and coat made all of purest mithril, were recovered.

Ķin's travels also brought him to the Western gate of Hollin.

Drawing ink + graphite pencil work. Boy, it took time to ink all those walls. Chronologically this is a bit off, as my meaning is to illustrate Balin's coronation next.

Fourth illustration to my "Balin, Lord of Moria" -serie.

Hehe, thank you. Not a flawless technique, definitely not (many errors here). It's very fun to draw, though, as Tolkien's stories are so inspirational!
