I see the victorious Gandalf standing over a decimated Balrog. His pale shoulders and limbs are clearly visible beneath a tattered robe. As Tolwen suggested, perhaps the wizard holds Glamdring in his hand, lowered and barely able to grasp it. The sword's point may be on the ground, but not looking like it's acting as a crutch, but on the verge of falling out of his weakened hand. By contrast, the demon is more leftover ash than flesh. Perhaps the suggestion of a broken wing or clawed hand protrudes outwards from its shadowy remains. Not too difficult to fabricate and could make for a serious diorama!
2 votes! YEEEAH! I can feel the momentum building!
sorry not another Gandalf, although I'm very found of this character and not another orc
time for a noble man, but weak and with a very sad story
(and whose cinematic adaption is not the right view as he is described in the novel, just because moviemakers need another "bad guy" and there is very few explanation of the background of a stewards life, and even a noble horse is used to knock him in the fire, pity!)
If he will win I hope there will also be the Palantir of Minas Tirith, which drove this poor man in black despair and madness
Well, I am deeply humbled that my suggestion has made it through the next round as the winner! I always liked Denethor and was saddened by his hubris in hiding and then using the Palantir of Gondor. His deep love for Boromer and the supposed failures of Faramir that had caused his Father's distrust and withdrawal of love- as it was Faramir who should have been sent to Elrond- is shown to be a lie when he finds Faramir seemingly fatally wounded. His mind cracked by Sauron, burning themselves alive as did those ancient "Southern Kings," was, to Denethor, an act of love. It is his agonized failure to do this that I see depicted on Denethor's face, not the pain of the fire. I already have a few big Orcs, but would love a Denethor! May the best woman or man win! (Right ddaines?!)
