When design work began on. The Lord of the Rings.
In 1997, the look of many of Middle-earths most evil creatures was open to interpretation. Loose descriptions in the books, plus rough sketches by seasoned Tolkien artist John Howe, helped guide Weta Workshop concept artist Ben Wootten in his development of the Balrog. The demonic form took shape almost entirely as sculptures, rather than illustrations.For Ben, the complexity of the Balrogs figure, complete with horns and fiery maw, was easier to resolve in 3D form, rather than a 2D image. Director Peter Jackson also responded well to 3D and the freedom it allowed to observe the creature from all angles. One of the very first maquettes of the Balrogs head became the model for the finished creation. When its body was complete, the sculpture was scanned by Weta Digital to bring the demon to life on screen. Two decades after he helped design fell creatures for. Weta Workshop sculptor Jamie Beswarick revisited the Balrog, this time capturing the unfathomable terror as a highly detailed polystone and resin bust. The Balrogs snarling visage was created using the same traditional physical sculpting techniques honed on the trilogy. Senior painter Jules German faced the unique challenge of maintaining the Balrogs flaming ferocity whether the inferno was illuminated or raged unlit. Staying true to the original paint scheme designed by Gino Acevedo, Jules used dark heavy acrylics on the demons skin, horns and teeth. High-end automotive paints usually emblazoned across the bodies of hot rods was applied to the demons molten cracks and roaring tresses using spray cans and airbrush. The highly-pigmented paints set the colours ablaze whilst retaining the translucent quality of the resin maw and mane. When illuminated, the Balrog is truly a demon composed of shadow and dancing flame.
