EOWYN vs The NAZGUL by moonxels EOWYN vs The NAZGUL by moonxels
here's my view about the famous Lords of the Ring scene, where Eowyn fights the Nazgul...
it was made for an Artorder contest.

edit:I've made a new version based on critics
here:
tell me which one is the best for you!

they are both amazing, even if i'd say i prefer this one, dunno why, mmm maybe more defined and i like the sword design more than the other ^^
They're still both great artworks

ah wait, just a tip

Eowyn was disguised as a male knight, so well, uhm, ehr, how to say, her chest's shape has probably looked strange to the other Rohirrims XD

yeah I know it's not "cannon" it's just my view as I liked to paint her as an obvious woman warrior...

^^ reminds me a picture about that part, made by Frank Franzetta

it was awesome, i love Franzetta's art, but well Eowyn's butt and girly legs were completely exposed xD i imagined the other knights "friend you have a really feminine lower body for being a super manly rohan's knight :O" XD

Very dramatic and dynamic, like the scene should be. I love your use of colors and the play of light and dark!

Great stuff. I love the juxtaposition of the light and dark that separates the two characters, especially Eowyn's hair, which is such a pure offset to the Witch King.

This is my new favourite LotR fanart - it not only depicts one of my favourite scenes, it also has a very unique take on the Witch-King of Angmar. Nazgul tend not to lend themselves well to improvisation - there are only so many things one can do with "black robes, covered from head to toe, no face"...

Not particularly, more because the colors are more natural. its beautiful ether way don’t get me wrong.

with the higher contrast you cant see as much of the great detail you have in it. though I like the reflective light across the skin of the dragon in the newer one as well as the bit of motion you added into the newer one. though the composition with the girl I fell works better in this peace as well Nazgul looks a bit more ominous when only the eyes are glowing creating a slightly lit cloud behind him were as when hes fully illuminated from all sides he lose the power he has even though he has a stronger stance with his arm raised in the new picture. I do however like the inclusion of the glowing chess in the newer one.
another thing I noticed with the two is the sises of the neck of the creature. here it seems to flow more naturally were in the new one it looks a bit disproportionate probably out of trying to force a stronger angle out of it.
Ether way the picture is still beautiful done and in the end I think it has to do with personal preference. keep up the wonderful work.
