Eowyn and the Nazgul

I'm working on the ArtOrder challenge of Eowyn and the Nazgul. I hope to be able to make the deadline. This is the image as it is now as a work in progress. Any input would be appreciated....

Eowyn and the Nazgul #1-Nazgul

I haven't posted in a really long time I see. My new job is keeping me busy and not much time for illustrating unfortunately. I was really struck by the ArtOrder's new challenge to re-interpret the scene of Eowyn vs. the Nazgul. I couldn't resist and I've been carving out some time to work on the idea.

This is my first pass at concepting the Nazgul. It looks a bit like Frazetta's "Death Dealer" but I'm happy with the direction. I like the idea of a phantasm, just an empty animated cloak. Hopefully I'll get something more done in time for the judging.

Good luck to everyone out there, and please share my post with your friends. Any feedback is good feedback.
