So here's a coloured experiment of the recent submission [link] . Made it a bit darker and gave just enough colour I think. Didn't want it overwhelmed. . . . . Should I stop with this as is, or any suggestions what I could do?
This is absolutely amazing work. Looks, in my opinion, a lot better than the first one you submitted. Not saying that one was bad, at all. In the book it talks about the hellish fires of Angband, calling Morgoth the Dark Lord clad in Iron and the evil feeling that the whole place resonates, and you've really captured that here. The dark cloud and the plumes of fiery smoke. The only sense of good and light would be Fingolfin, and that ends when he is killed. A very nicely interpreted deviation, I'll picture this in my head whenever I read over that chapter of my Silmarillion again.
I like this. One of the few images that has the proportions of both duellers believable I like the eerie light surrounding Fingolfin. The only thing to pick at for me would be the light beyond the gate of Angband, I personally imagine dark clouds shrouding it
Thank you for the wonderful comment! It may be a bit to bright, but the sky is alight with the fires of the volcanoes above Angband. I wanted some partial silhouette for Morgoth, however I do agree there's a bit too much light... Thank you again - and for the
