Same; it's very rare that I see a depiction of Balrogs (official or otherwise) that even comes close to capturing what I envision when I read the description of it in Fellowship. Thanks for sharing the link to this one! :)

I too like that depiction of the balrog!

A commercial for the One Ring
If there was anything that depressed him more than his own cynicism, it was that quite often it still wasn't as cynical as real life.

I've built my Rivendell. I'm not mad keen on Barad-dûr but it looked better in the shop than the pictures online.

I would prefer Minas Tirith or Meduseld.
