''Aulë fashioned the substances of which Arda was composed and is the master of crafts and of the knowledge of substances. He delights in the nature of substances and in works of skill, but he is not concerned with possession or mastery. ''

''Melkor was in his origins the mightiest of all the Ainur and the greatest in knowledge. During the Song of Creation his strange thoughts produced Discord, marring the fabric of reality even before its creation. Through pride, malice and a desire to dominate the wills of others he fell into darkness. He became the first Dark Lord...''

This illustration shows us Melkor's first shape. I will illustrate Morgoth soon.

"Then Fëanor swore a terrible oath. His seven sons leapt straightway to his side and took the selfsame vow together, and red as blood shone their drawn swords in the glare of the torches. They swore an oath which none shall break, and none should take, by the name even of Ilúvatar, calling the Everlasting Dark upon them if they kept it not; and Manwë they named in witness, and Varda, and the hallowed mountain of Taniquetil, vowing to pursue with vengeance and hatred to the ends of the World Vala, Demon, Elf or Man as yet unborn, or any creature, great or small, good or evil, that time should bring forth unto the end of days, whoso should hold or take or keep a Silmaril from their possession.

Thus spoke Maedhros and Maglor and Celegorm, Curufin and Caranthir, Amrod and Amras, princes of the Noldor; and many quailed to hear the dread words. For so sworn, good or evil, an oath may not be broken, and it shall pursue oathkeeper and oathbreaker to the world's end."

J. R. R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion, Ch. 9: Of the Flight of the Noldor

...and came from the Valarin, second greatest of the Lords of the Valar and one of the Aratar. A lover of water, Ulmo was one of the chief architects of Arda.
and here he is! Ulmo. My final drawing for now. This drawing is my masterpiece now. I couldnt do anything like that before, and from now on, I think this is my beginning too.
I hope you'll like it guys. I worked so much for him. I've never drew waves before and I was scared to do this. but here it is! :)

''Manwe and melkor are brothers in Iluvatar's mind. At the beginning, the most powerful ainu was Melkor who had came to the earth. But Manwe is favourite child of ERU. Manwe is Lord of Arda and Aratar. His happiness in the wind and clouds. He loves all the fastest birds and the power of the wings. Manwe lives with lady of the stars; Varda. They lived in Valinor. They rost in Oiolosse, top of the Taniquetil.. The highest mountain of the world. İf Varda with him, Manwe sees behind the fogs, darkness and deep of the sea...''
