Finrod vs Sauron - Art Project

The Shire

Finrod vs Sauron - Art Project Can't Post

So, I commissioned an artist to draw the scene of Ecthelion vs Gothomg at the Fall of Gondolin.

If you visit this thread, you can see it was not met well by all. (Final version on page 2)

Some of the issues could have been fixed, but I didn't want to spend anymore money on the already expensive piece of art. Anyway, I still like it. Better Balrog design then Howe's or Nasmiths.

ANYWAY. I'm looking to get the songs of power duel done between Finrod and Sauron.

It's one of the few Silmarillion scenes that has been drawn well in my searches online.

3) http://mifnar.deviantart.com/art/Finrod-vs-Sauron-6412192
4) http://www.elfwood.com/.../kare/duel2.jpg.html

#1 while the artist isn't very talented, I think he has a good idea of the visuals of the duel. And, he's the only artist to maybe try and show that Finrod is disguised as an Orc while in the duel.

#2 and #3 are no good at all..

#4 is alright.

Does anyone have any other thoughts on keys details that could be used for this scene? Like the location of the duel.

"But Sauron in his tower was ware of the, and doubt took him; for they went in haste, and stayed not to report their deeds, as was commanded to all servants of Morgoth that passed that way. Therefore he sent to waylay them, and bring them before him."

So, it sounds as if the location is outside of Tol-in-Gaurhoth. I don't have BOLT, so I'm not sure what the ealier versions had for this duel. But someone else I've talked to interpret 'sent to waylay them, and bring them before him' as meaning that he sent some of his servants to bring them what would be the point of 'bringing them before him' if he himself went to them instead?'
