Eowyn and the Nazgul by Deligaris Eowyn and the Nazgul by Deligaris
This is a painting I have made for a challenge, and I had a lot of fun working on it. The scene is from JRR Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" .
I wanted to make this action scene look very epic, dark and dramatic. I hope you like the result.

Painted in Photoshop.

Thanks for viewing!

Eowyn and the Nazgul by *deligaris. Utterly incredible, one of the best renditions of this famous scene that I have ever seen! The composition, lighting, and color scheme are all absolutely phenomenal. ( Suggested by purplekyloe and Featured by alicexz )

Oh thank the Maiar! Someone with the sense enough to not give her "girl armor" with boob cups. She was disguised as a man, why on earth would she wear armor that shouts "I'M A WOMAN!"? Thank you for making a beautiful and sensible piece of work! It's truly magnificent and so atmospheric, the terror of the witch king against the strength of Eowyn is magnificent.

Just looking at this picture I know every single possible praise will be there in the comment fields. But ignoring the comment field, the one thing that stands out for me is the contrast. It's very dark, omnious, the fear that the nazgul inspires is there in painting....the winged beast has it's wings spread covering an already dark field of battle in yet more shadow. The nazgul holds his mace high summoning some dark magic. You know that if you go up against this, you will die. Yet there Eowyn comes, light and hope, a contrast against the darkness of the nazgul. Who will prevail? Surely it will be the nazgul.....
