I recently watched "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and thought that Azog the Defiler was really cool. Apparently he doesn't really play the same role in the books, but I thought he was bad-ass. I decided to draw a scene from his initial campaign against the dwarves, before he lost his arm. I imagine he would have carried out more than one dwarf head as a trophy. I really tried to focus on the lighting in this one, and am generally pleased with the result.
You've created an intense scene here, great work.
I love the musculature and vein work you did here. The blood spatters are very visceral, and the lighting from the fires of war behind him is well done.
Good looking chap!
