Barad-Dur and Orodruin by MikeCoombsArt Barad-Dur and Orodruin by MikeCoombsArt
This is my first ever landscape done from my own head with no photo reference. Im absolutely enthralled by Lord of the Rings right now and i was reading the history or sauron and really wanted to do something along those lines.

This took my roughly 2 hours or so to complete, and has been a great study for me. I am aware that there is no eye at the top of the tower, i left it till last and could get it to work compositionally, maybe i will add it in but at the moment im happy to leave it looking more balanced.

I love this design! it's always so fun to see original (not movie-inspired) designs of characters or scenery from tolkien's works.
