Shadow and Flame by OtisFrampton Shadow and Flame by OtisFrampton
This is a digital auction piece featuring a my favorite Middle Earth beastie about to go fishin' for a wizard.

The original line art measures 7 1/2 x 14 inches and was drawn on Bristol using Micron pens. The final artwork was colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me coloring (most of) this piece on my Ustream channel here: [link]

Thanks and congratulations to Rick for winning the bidding and purchasing the piece!

-Otis

This just has so many levels of awesome in it... the Balrog reminds me of some of the creature concepts from the newest Ratchet and Clank games!

amazing piece of artwork, the cartoony-like style makes it even better to my eyes for some reason.

Don't worry, YouTube has adapted such a feature, so other sites are bound to follow suit.

Thanks. I think this is actually the least I've made on a digital auction so far. I probably won't have one for a while, gotta let interest rise again. ;)

You seem to have that marketing thing down bro. That I think is my biggest weakness. Seems like no matter what I read, my mind goes dumb in that area. lol. Keep up the great work man. :D
