Witch King by elfkin Witch King by elfkin
Lovely as he was evil? Maybe.....

I often think Sauron must have thought his wraiths were beautiful in their terribleness.

At any rate, here is the King of Angmar in the moments before he is full wraith--not alive, but not yet undead either.... trapped in a moment when the he is something else altogether and so the world appears to be to him, as well.

I will stop rambling now......

Still one of my favorite pictures of yours - beautiful, tragic, and disturbing.

Thank you! This was done a really long time ago. I mean years. And I've contemplated redoing it. But there was something about him that I just kinda liked.

"Beautiful and terrible as the dawn" is the quote that comes to mind when I see this picture (even though the quote is Galadriel describing herself.) Just amazing this picture is.

Lovely indeed. I randomly searched the Witch King on a whim, and was pleased that this was among the results. A wonderful picture as well as an intriguing idea and moment captured. :thumbsup:

WOW! Ya know, I think the same about the wraiths. Consider that Witch-king was a great Numenorian king before, you have done a really respectable work! I dunno, but I trust that Black Breath wasn't pure fear, but there was also grief in it......
