Wily Walt's Witch-King

A while back, Walt Simonson worked on the animated Return of the King film for Rankin/Bass productions. He drew to fit the style of the animation, which was based on the designs for the earlier Hobbit film by the same studio. Below, I've posted some of the drawings he did for that project along with some earlier drawings. It seems that Simonson read Lord of the Rings in college, while he was studying geology and first getting into drawing, so he did some illustrations. I've included all the drawings of the lord of the Nazgul, also known as the Witch-King of Angmar and the Black Captain. You can find all these and more on Simonson's Facebook gallery.
