In discussing this commission from Gus, I told him that I was very drawn to the way his figures displayed an unsettling mix of elegance and strangeness. The recognizably human elements are often blended with strange almost architectural details, heightening the surreality and blurring the line between reality and fantasy. This is some potent stuff, so I was very eager to see what Gus would do with the Witch-king of Angmar. His commission is above, and I was spellbound, as I had hoped. While the scan does the image some justice, in reality the colors are even more subtly variegated, beautifully toned, and perfectly complementary to the composition and figure. This is an amazing piece.
A new addition to my collection of Nazgul and Witch-king of Angmar art commisions.
