Painting Prep: Eowyn and the Witch King by Turtle-Arts Painting Prep: Eowyn and the Witch King by Turtle-Arts
The digital sketch for my final watercolor class painting! This time, I've decided to do some Lord of the Rings art, because for some reason over the past week I've had a burning desire to draw some ring wraiths. Not sure why. I've never had the desire to draw LotR art before now. But I sat down last weekend to do some sketching and ended up drawing nothing but nazgul for like, half an hour. XD For my painting I decided to do Eowyn and the Witch King because that's a pretty boss part of the story and I thought it would be fun to do. :> Hopefully it transfers well to watercolor. XD

Oooohhhhh Like the single color tone and splashes of other colors! Oh this reminds me! Ever heard of John Howe? He did a wonderful detailed watercolor of this scene.

Good lighting however the rider kinda blends with the fell beast. However if that's your intent then it does create good movement.

Yeah I've seen the John Howe image. It's very beautiful. :nod: As for mine, yes I blended the wraith and the creature on purpose. I want the nazgl guy to be more of a secondary read in the image. Like, he's obviously there, but his form is still kind of indeterminable.

This is probably one of my favorite renditions of this scene. :iconepicclapplz: I really like how the Witch King and his mount sort of encapsulate Eowyn, who stands out.

SWEEET! My only critique would be to make sure that the ringwraith stands out enough. They all kind of blend in to the sky at the moment.

You think? He stands out pretty well on my monitor. :/

Shape and line wise yeah. Are you doing a monochrome/analagous? I think it's just cause all of the same colours are used. I dunno.

Eh, it's more of a monochromatic brown/red with blue mixed in. XD But I want the wraith and the dragony-guy to be a secondary, slightly indeterminate read to Eowyn, so I don't want to bring them out too much.
