Silmarillion - Ungoliant and Melkor by helgecbalzer Silmarillion - Ungoliant and Melkor by helgecbalzer
Ungoliant and Melkor ... compared to my illustration of Fingolfin and Morgoth I have given Melkor a design which fits better to a sneaking-mission ... #silmarillion #tolkien #ungoliant #melkor

No, just morbidly curious and had too much caffeine the day before.

Holy heck, that is NOT a spider! It's pretty plain that the alien creature of Ungoliant could best be likened to a giant spider, though she far exceeds the basic description of earthly arachnids...!

That is terrifying, I like thats its not just a big ugly spider, which arent bad creatures and can look elegant. Now Im not surprised Melkor is afraid of her!

Excellent depiction dude. Finally, someone nails Ungoliant, and Shelob too.  Not just a big spider. An evil spirit in spider form spewing blackness. And you've give her hands!!!!   that's true Horror there. Giant spider things that can open doors! Was it not scary enough  :)

I like this version of Ungoliant. A lot of artists depict her as just a derpy spider. But When I read the book I pictured her more like this. Huge and terribly disturbing.

Even Morgoth couldn't trust her... Fortunantly she died, tho Shelob is her heir.
