They Were Once Men…

Middle Earth

“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.

The outline roughed in, the main elements in place, the piece was abandoned as I began work on different projects like ‘The Road Goes Ever On’ and ‘The Grey Pilgrim’.
