Sauron, Lord of the Rings editorial illustration

This is the editorial illustration I made of Sauron, from The Lord of the Rings.

It was made for the Swedish montly magazine Kollega (Collegue in english translation). I wrote about the illustration and the assignment a little more in detail on my blog. Read more here

First made first drafts sketches in my paper sketchbook making studies for the look of Sauron, then moved over to Corel PHOTO-PAINT to draw and coloring it from start to end using the Brush tools in Corel PHOTO-PAINT. And my Wacom Intuos tablet.
