Absolutely terrifying! I love your version of this place. The colors are wonderfully ominous.

I've always loved to see Silmarillion art! This is really neat! Its scary and yet beautiful as well.
I'd be interested in seeing your take of the Halls of Mandos someday!

GOD bless

wow..the halls of Mandos. That would be a challenge!! It would have to be really big that one. Much bigger than Angband, what with ALL the dead and all!! Maybe one day. Maybe you have planted a wee seed there. Thanks SeekHim!! Will notify you if i ever manage it!!

got a lot to think about there!! I always struggled with the notion of the place. Always seemed a bit vague and intangible. I reckon Mandos would look quite severe, not evil though.

Thanks! I've always been interested in Mandos.
Here's what I know;the halls are covered in tapestries and the
halls are ever expanding so yeah they are big!

Also not many stay in Mandos permanently. Elves stay there for
awhile until they are reborn and humans briefly pass through
before leaving the the Circles of Arda forever. The only ones
who stay permanently are those who have done great evil;
they'll be there until the ending of Arda.

And on another note the Halls are a place of instruction,
comfort and healing so they certainly wouldn't be ugly.

GOD bless

Fantastic use of color, shadow, mass, and space! The architectural design really works for me.

A great job ... I am reading the Silmarillion at the moment ... This view of Angband helps me visualize Melkor's fortress defended by Sauron ... Thank you.
