LOTRO: Gwathnor by Gorrem LOTRO: Gwathnor by Gorrem
To my understanding he's like a lesser Baelrog. Or like, one of the Nameless. Or something. Honestly, you're gonna have to ask the content department on how we're manhandling Tolkien's lore on this one. All I know is he's made of fire and shadow and he's probably taller than you.

I just draw the pictures man, don't flame me for lore-bending please?

That guy was impressive. Even though my main is a 75 hunter he still has Epic Books to finish and Moria, cause I skipped it as much as I could second time through. Moria is just so freaking HUGE! Gwathnor was a nice addition. To see the concept art is even better! I'd say lore wise you guys did a good job, since Tolkien had the 'older darker things' line. Yeah, there are quite a few things not exactly in there. But as a fan of Tolkien and a LOTRO player I'm not gonna bash Turbine too much till they REALLY mess up...creative liberties can be taken, and really, it's great to be able to explore Moria as a player and see the alluded-to critters.

First time I fought him in LotRO I about peed myself. He was easily the most evil looking thing I'd fought up to that point, though the Watcher was pretty vile too.

But I digress, this is marvelously done. I salute you.

So that's how he looks like? Funny, I've fought this...thing, but being the minstrel of our group, had all my attention on green bars. And so never got a clear view of what exactly we were fighting=)
An exellent picture.

I think the swords are really cool but the character itself could have done better without them, he looks so supernatural already that he wouldn't need weapons, he is a weapon. On the other hand I don't know with what limits you've worked either. I'm speaking as an NCA
(Non-Comissioned-Artist)

I wonder if I just invented that expression? I'm Emil Maxén and I invented it!
