First Age of the Sun, The Fifth Battle: Nirnaeth Arnoediad

"But now in the western battle Fingon and Turgon were assailed by a tide of foes thrice greater then all the force that was left to them."

From: The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien

-------------------------------------------------------------

I was sketching some scenes from this battle, action scenes, which I don't usually do. I have some great images in mind and I am warming up for the one :iconnetprincess: suggested to me. I want that one to be amazing ;)

This sketch took me about 4 hours, pen & ink on a double page spread. It shows an elven host assailed by a huge army of orcs issuing forth from Angband, Morgoth's hold. In the background loom the ominous slopes of Thangorodrim's massive flanks.
