This is amazing. Sauron is at his best during the Downfall of Numenor and you've captured the essence of that so well here. It's chilling to know everything he looks at in this picture, he wants to destroy--the West, Ar-Pharazon, the White Tree he so casually mentions, Numenor itself--but he doesn't let on ANY of this. The defiant but civilized captive, too sincere to flatter... and yet he IS flattering, so subtly ("It's best to be sincere with clever men") as part of playing the long con.


Sauron is known as "The Deceiver" and the idea of something that absolutely HATES you taking a form it knows you will trust, and slowly building your confidence for centuries though plotting your downfall the entire time... it's a frightening idea, and seeing this comic is the first time I've really been able to imagine it. Excellent work on all fronts.

This is one of my favourite things you've ever done... I love Númenor!Sauron and Ar-Pharazôn and I adore the colour palette... especially panels two and three. I have it bookmarked so I can read through it occasionally. <3

Would love to know how you design Numenor scenery/halls/architecture and what your process for that is

Sauron is such a femboy.

That’s just how some people interpret him. I doubt that is what Tolkien had in mind

I agree, I have always pictured him with dark hair a fiery eyes, but are you working on an illustrated version with the approval of the Tolkien Society?

Everything is perfect.

Except that Sauron has blonde hair. Dead (RIP)
