Spawn of Ungoliant PDF Painting Guide

Today I’d like to share a PDF Painting Guide for the Spawn of Ungoliant from The Shadowed Paths expansion to The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth:

The main thing I wanted to achieve with this was to give the impression that this is quite a sick creature, but I also wanted some fairly vibrant tones.

As with the other monsters from the Shadowed Paths expansion I’ve made heavy use of the Contrast Colours which I think are ideal for organic monsters like this.

I do hope you enjoy the guide!  Watch out for the next episode in the Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth video series coming soon…

Happy Painting!


PS Here’s an affiliate link to the Rosemary & Co Series 8 brush that I love to use (I use the Size 2, “Short handle”) – thanks!

    Thx for this tuto, once again very affordable for beginners like me 🙂 Just one thing not about the painting’s side but more about the character. I’m really not sure this figurine represents Ungoliant ( she was much more bigger than the Balrog and was living before the story of Bilbo, Frodo ,….). I imagine it represents much more, maybe Shelob or a cousin of Shelob, descending of Ungoliant. Just in case. Thx again 😉 Marc

      Thanks Marc! I guess that’s why she’s called the “Spawn of Ungoliant” rather than Ungoliant herself 😀

      Hi Anne! I don’t have a “master list” as such, but you can find a list of paints used in each video description. 😀
