Witch-king of Angmar by akreon Witch-king of Angmar by akreon
Part of the bigger watercolour commission for :iconjeffzz111:

Together with the other, not yet finished painting, it will create some sort of diptych :3 Can you guess who will be featured on the second part? And no, it wont be that fucking bitch Éowyn.

Hi! I saw that you requested a critique, so if you don't mind...here I go! Of course, your use of the watercolor is absolutely beautiful. I love how the colors blend into one another, I think it creates a great "hide" effect for the steed. Your backgrounds are also wonderfully done. The only thing I think that might hinder the piece is that the sky in the right hand corner might be a bit too colorful, and distracts from the subject. It is a little confusing to the eye too, when you look at it as a whole piece. However, because it is beautiful on its own, I can easily understand why you would want it there. I really like your choice in making the red of the cut bolder than most of the other colors, it really makes the action and point of the work stand out. On the whole, I simply adore this work and am awed by your talent. Well done!

Do you do these entirely traditional, or do you fix them up a bit digitally? Just wondering. Wonderful work, it's stunning

I love your watercolor work. This makes the dusty painting of a pony I have at home look like a two-year old's scribble. And yet, I can't stop looking at it...

Wonderful, wonderful art :D

I just want to say in response to the critique, that i thought the mountains on the left were what distracts from the picture rather then the right hand sky, which i think is awesome and adds to the picture.

WOW nice!

i started watercoloring and oil painting recently and i have a question for you.

did you outline everything before you started painting or did you paint without guidelines or anything. did you outline with a marker or a pencil?

did you use any sort of reference for this or did you do it completely from your mind.

THANKS

Another awesome piece! The fellbeast looks just chilling. *shudders* I think he sort of distracts from the Witch King, but not too bad.

;P I like Eowyn! She actually does something... unlike all the other female characters... *scowls*
