“They are the Nazgûl, Ringwraiths, neither living or dead. At all times they feel the presence of the ring…drawn to the power of the one..they will never stop hunting you.”
– Aragorn explaining the Nazgûl to Frodo, Pippin, Merry and Sam
Some time ago, I began working on a piece depicting the scene of the attack at Weathertop. I trawled through reference material and put together a few different elements in order to come up with a composition that I liked.
Fairly recently however, I dug the piece out and continued work on it, got it finished as a preliminary charcoal drawing, transferred onto canvas and now awaiting the oil paint version. The final piece!
So for this post I have decided to include the finished preliminary drawing and the oil painting process will soon follow; I intend to document and record the process of the painting from start to finish; using a combination of photo and video.
Anyway, enough talk. Here’s the artwork!
“They were once men, great kings of men. Then Sauron the deceiver gave to them Nine Rings of Power. Blinded by their greed they took them without question, one by one falling into darkness and now they are slaves to his will.”
– Aragorn recounting the origin of the Nazgûl
