That is a great depiction of Morgoth. I really like that you didn't paint him like an Orc or other monster, but mostly human. And the fractured light of the Silmarils is a really brilliant (... no pun intended) touch.

Terrific! This work is sublime. It catches soul of Melkor. Incompleteness, greed, desire, intelligence are a small part of a complex personality...for me...much charming!

This is Perfection. That fits 100% with how i imagined him in the Simarillion.
I rarely ever see art on characters from books that hits me like that. Amazing work, really!

I was looking forward to see your depiction of the dark majesty of Melkor, i'm late to the party. The more i see your artwork the more i want someone to spend billions in making multiple Silmarillion movies Waaaah!

Так вот он какой...Моргот! Самый настоящий!
Очень нравится как светит силмарилл в его короне. Отличный и реалистичный портрет! Примерно таким я его себе и представляла.

Спасибо большое!))  ...не просто дался мне этот портрет, смотреть ему в глаза столько времени, ну вы понимаете))  нарисовать сияние сильмариллов в короне очень интересная была задача.

Ага я его на тумбе уже видела. Он прямо классический такой, мне кажется все как-то в целом так себе и представляют...
Не очень пойму куда плечи его делись, что за задумка? Крылья, он дракон? Что там за белый серп? Автор поясните!
Очень мне нравятся Камни! Вот эти вот радужные блики, и красноватый отблеск кое где и чешуя и лава, у меня такие ассоциации и вот эта половина лица уже искаженная, здорово, атмосферу сразу создает нужную,
жалко только, что его так мало(

Будет, будет больше))    не знаю где плечи, рука у меня так пошла, и луноподобный серп, без него фон скучно смотрелся, чисто ради композиции листа))   Надеюсь в ближайшее время нарисовать как это должно быть целиком, с троном вместе.  И да, я как раз лаву и имела ввиду!   Интересно было нарисовать в конце концов сильмарили, радужные и блестящие, и в короне покопаться.., и на контрасте хорошо работается, после чего-то очень тёмного сделать потом светлое.

Ага это очень хорошо, что будет!, драконов ему, нетопырей, сов, волколаков и прочей нечисти поболее! И ногу ему пусть все гады лобызают!)
лава читается, мне очень понравилась, вообще люблю лаву у меня даже четки из нее есть...
да контраст очень красивый, и корона такая продуманная, но мне нравится, что все остальное темное...
С плечами однако непонятка)

This is the best depiction of Melkor/Morgoth I've ever seen. He is dark and majestic here but not monstrous. I can feel his darkness but also maybe sadness here? I hope to see your depiction of Manwe one day.

Oh my freaking....     Just stunning.   (or... just stunned, as the case may be.)

Don't know if I've ever seen you portray evil with such simplicity and skill.

(Your use of color here is amazing.  The colors are all the more vivid for their scarcity.)

Love how you have shown the Silmarils in the crown, with their eternal light held in the world of darkness.

Thank you very much, dear friend!!  
That guy squeeze me dry during I draw him)))  I remembered of impression that must to give his look, and tried to put it in this portrait.
And the light of Trees in Silmarils shackled in the Underworld was especially interesting challende)

yeah, I can see how he might!  It's interesting when you are used to portraying light, or at least neutral (or ambivalent) characters... to then try to capture that much evil.  In art, sometimes we do have to come face to face with incredible darkness, to acknowledge its presence, and reveal it for what it is... but it can certainly leave us shivering with cold!

It is definitely interesting how you communicated that sense of the light being shackled.  The light makes Morgoth all the more evil....

Beautifully done!

Beautiful, broken, furious and envious.

I really like this piece! Captures something about Melkor which is rarely shown in art.

It's so great! I love especially his crown with the silmarils. They seem to glow with many colors in them, just like a diamant would, though it's only black and white. I love it, everything, basically, Great Work! I wish I could draw like that....Llama Emoji-21 (Speechless) [V1]
