Hi - This is great! Can't wait to check out all of your work.

I have used it in a post on Silmarillion Ch23: truemyths.org/2015/04/28/the-s…

Hope that's OK! Please let me know if it's an issue.

A fantastic picture, youv've catured the scene perfectly. So much art is done of the battle but very few of the aftermath, an excellent view into the hours and days after the fall. Very well done!

really a sad story Tolkien wrote on this... Gondolin must have been beautiful in its best days...

This part of the book really depressed me. D:
Looks very good though.

Well to be fair, the Elves spend most of the first age getting their asses kicked, so this wasn't really an exception.

That's true, but for some reason I found the fall of Gondolin hard to read. Not sure why that is.

i find it amazing that the destruction is visible without of painting several balrogs, dragons and elven Warriors. The Shadows and dawn light makes you feel the same way the part in the Silmarillion did, reminded of the beauty, but aware of the destruction..

Wow, that's really neat!
Like the texture, especially the mountains, and the strong colors.

Thanks. I'd have put more detail into this ideally, and some stronger lighting for the city itself, if i'd come back to it. But that's not happening, i'd rather do something new..

Minor edits. Colour balance, depth separation, that kind of thing. Next.
