Gondor, The White City. All know is that I could never draw that, let alone paint it. John Howe and Alan Lee, the gentlemen who did the conceptual art and much of the design throughout the making of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, incredible artists.
The Lord of the Rings. Gandalf the Wizard VS the Balrog. In the end, they both die at each other's hands, but the Balrog going first, and Gandalf falling off the cliffs of Khazad-Dum to a bottomless abyss.
