You shall not pass by Mihawq You shall not pass by Mihawq
Alright! I wanted to draw something kinda epic... But I just could not think of anything to draw. I knew I wanted someone to fight something huge and evil....
So I searched google and found a piece that I thought would make good practice to try an recreate. ^^ Just to move out of the comfort zone and gain some new experience.

So, here´s Gandalf VS Balrog!! xP

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think!

Yup! That's the original pic that I used as a refference. ^^ Was really good practice I must say! Iearned alot while trying to make the pic as similar to the original one as possible.

When you base an entire picture on the work of another artist, you should not attempt to pass it off as your own.   That's a breach of copyright and also very disrespectful.

Hi! I'm sorry if I wasn't clear in the description for the pic. ^^ It was never my intention to pass it off as my own original idé, this was supposed to be a study piece that I did some years back. And I did learn alot from trying to match the original artwork in feel and look. I appologize if I've offended you, in any way! It has never been my intention to mislead anyone. :)

If it is a study piece based on someone else's work, then your descriptions, tag etc should all say so VERY visibly and also credit the original artist properly with their name and a link to their art.   You say  you're sorry that you weren't clear, but you still haven't edited these things.

I am sorry that I was not clear with my description and such. I truly am. I shall edit the information for the piece as soon as I get the opportunity to do so, but I'm in no real hurry. :) And for the link to the original artist, I dont realy know who he/she is.. I found the pic on google many years ago. ^^ And I don't think that credit directed towards a random google search will be of any gain for the original artist. And also, I want to make clear that I did not paint this piece to steal any credit or anything from the original artist. The only thing I gained from trying to recreate the piece was the experience. And it helped me to evolve as an artist. :)
