My feeling exactly.
So, I know I’m exceedingly late to this, too, but I really liked your color scheme and six winged seraph idea for the pre-fall balrogs/the kind of spirit Arien is and decided to play with it.Next, female Balrog. It's a bit obnoxious in colored pencil, but I wanted to have the costume be the various colors of flame, so orange, gold, yellow, and blue. Boot are currently brown, but I'm not sold on that. The outfit is meant to be vaguely militaristic, like a medieval squire. There's an emblem on the front of the tunic and the back of the short cloak, which is an abstract representation of the six-winged seraph. Did we decide that the pre-fall Balrogs had wings? If so, we might drop the cloak.
