Morgoth: Boy you just had to interrupt my alone time, listening to the music of metal!

Why does Fingolfin look like sinda? His hair was black.
helgecbalzer's avatar
Yes I know. But I didn't know when I was painting it back in 2015. So it's a mistake.

Is it big enough now, Peter Jackson? :P
But seriously, I would be terrified if a twenty-foot giant stalked towards me with a warhammer whose head was as big as I was. Fingolfin's got nerves of pure mithril to hold his ground against Morgoth...!

I agree :) Tolkien described Morgoth as big as a mountain while his hammer smashes big holes into the ground. The image is accepted by the Tolkien-Society and other communities.

Grond looks super wicked here. I also love the curve of Fingolfin's sword.

Many thanks, Jesse! :)

Terrifying when you remember Sauron was Morgoth-lite, but Sauron was a creature of ORDER (his love of perfection was married to an equal detesting of wastefulness), while Morgoth was a creature of CHAOS.

Favorite moment in the Silmarillion. Fingolfin is a boss!

Morgoth is such a great villain

Morgoth's armor and weapon is the epitome of everything that is insidious in Arda. Words cannot describe the sense of righteousness I get from Fingolfin challenging Morgoth to single combat.

This is a well done piece!
