The Fall of Gondolin by KingOfExplodia The Fall of Gondolin by KingOfExplodia
Glorfindel saves Tuor and Idril from a Balrog as they escape from Gondolin.  

I've always wanted to capture this scene, although I'm ashamed to say I still haven't actually read through the entirety of the Silmarillion.

Epic! And kudos for not drawing a Peter Jackson balrog (PJ balrog is a great design but I like to see other people's interpretations).

Thanks!  Yeah, I feel like the aesthetic of the films has totally overtaken much of the Tolkien art in the past decade, so I try to go back to the source and draw inspiration from his original writing.  I LOVE seeing different visual interpretations of scenes from books, so I try to contribute to that. :D
