The black tower. And those other towers that have no real use being on it.

Wow! I think I like this version more than the version in the movie. Neat twisting effect throughout it.

I really like this, but I alway wondered (in both versions) how the orcs could march across that bridge, It must be way too hot!

that's why orcs always have such thick boots.

Very very good. I feel this piece like something different. The style is personal and colours are so beautiful. Great job

hey man I like it though I thought it was going to have a more living feel to it. Is there any way to add all the divits and whatnot that you had in the sketch? or did they not like that Idea. The perspective seems to be a bit off but I think it works with the subject being a twisted tower. overall kudos.

It looks awesome! The only thing I would suggest (and I feel silly suggesting anything) is a little more lighting. Are the spirits creating light that would shine off the tower... and the tower itself would get darker the higher away from the light source which it is, but if the light is going that high it might need to be a little brighter on the bottom. Otherwise it's absolutely brilliant! Congrats on such a killer piece!
