Wow. This is really good. To demonstrate how good this is, the nearest horse's eye. It looks like it will glow red, but it's not painfully obvious. In fact, just now I caught myself moving my head back and forth to see if it would glow at the right angle! Subtle. ;)

Великолепнейший рисунок. Не просто виден профессионализм, но еще и передает первозданную глубину толкиеновского мира.
Очень сответствует духу книги.

The second Nazgul has a helmet.... But they were just robed black riders at this point. I almost thought the second guy was Glorfindel, except he looked to evil....

Second Nazgul - the Witch-King. Frodo rode alone. Glorfindel stayed with hobbits and Aragorn.

I realize. But I didn't expect the nazgul to have a helm. I jumped to conclusions.

Something's wrong. I wrote the first comment on the painting of the nazgul chasing Frodo. It wound up on :icongold-seven:'s front page. I wrote the second comment there..... And it seems to have been copied back to the painting. DeviantArt programming fail.

Yes, Frodo in the book has blonde hair. And yes, he goes alone, without Arwen.
Read a book; D

Haha I have read the book several times.. I don't know how I missed that he had blond hair. Lol oh well.. =P

As I remember it Arwen wasn't even in that part of the story it was Glorfindel (I was about to write Galahad.. I've been reading too much Merlin legends.-.-) who found them.=)

I love how the purity of Asfaloth makes him stand out so beautifully among the black Nazgul mounts. This is incredible work and, though I personally don't see Frodo as a blonde, everything is exactly how I imagined it! Well done!
