BalrogThe Battle of the Peak by BenWootten
BalrogThe Battle of the Peak
This my latest piece for the Weta NZ art print range, it has just gone on sale on their web site. It was a great thrill to get to paint this piece, to revisit this character after all this time, it seems so long ago that I was working with John Howe, to design this guy for the films and then sculpting the first collectible of him for the Weta range of figurines.

Hi Ben, I have a question.

Did you create some awesome artwork for Bestiary 4 box from Pathfinder? And if you did, is it possible you could post them on your Deviantart in their real-size versions? That would be fantastic as i'm such a fan of your work! (really hope you got to do some Outer Dragons in that box, but I dunno I haven't bought the Bestiary 4 box yet)

:-) and as always keep up the fantastic work !

Congratulations!  You got featured as the Fantasy-NPC artist of the week!
Much deserved, you got lots of awesome stuff!  :)…

PS:  OMG, I've just been watching The Tick on Netflix.  Such weirdness.

How do you find the time and inspiration to do all this work?! There is so much here!

Also, how and from where/what did you learn your art theory? You've got it down so well the level of consistency is amazing!

Consistency is what I need... >.<;;
