The battle Theoden fights with the Nazgul has always been a topic of great interest to me. The fall of the King of Rohan and the revenge that was had in his honour are two of the most poignant images in 'The Lord of the Rings', in my opinion. I have been trying for a long while to capture the confusion and intimacy of this scene. I was able to somewhat capture it here. I would like to further explore this theme (and I am sure I will in paintings and further sketches) but this was a nice initial mood study and put me right at the height of the action, directly before the moment when all is finally decided. Enjoy.
