This is very cool, the colours are perfect in this painting!
It's very freshing to see balrogs which looks different from the movie one.

I *love* your view of the Balrogs. Very close to how I first imagined them!

I think this is more accurate of how Balrogs are portrayed in The Silmarillion than in The Lord of the Rings. Either way this is going on my wall.

And I like your version much better. I'm also tired of horned winged creatures...

Very nice. I too am pretty tired of all the horned and devil-ish looking Balrogs. Something this human looking is pretty cool.
