Tolkien's villains - Best.Villains.Ever.

***This strip happens after Luthien steal Silmarill from Morgoth.

Actually this strip have no sence if you didn't read the book x))
But if you didn't read Silmarillion,here's some wikipedia for you:

I think you should remember Sauron (big eye in Lotr)
Morgoth >> [link]
Silmarils >> [link]
Luthien >> [link]

Sorry for ''balrog'' x)

You draw them so well!

Your version of Melkor is I believe the reason I might have a crush on Melkor :3 this remains one of my favourite short comics of the silmarillion

All of your art is breathtaking. I’m especially impressed by the lighting, and how you managed to create such heavy atmosphere with a limited color palette.
I think this was when Sauron truly realized that Melkor was no more, and only Morgoth remained.

This is brilliant. And it probably did go something like that, too.

I would point out, technically, being a Valar and a Maiar respectively, they are both spirits, only wearing their bodies for show. Being made bodiless by Luthien wouldn't have bothered Sauron that much, since he could always get a new one.

I just cant get over Melkor restraining himself from crushing Mairon, that second to last row is just perfect.

The Balrogs were recruited, not bred. They are Maiar. Other then that, this is practically perfect.

What, don't Balrogs and Maiar reproduce too?

And I just ruined your day with that image of Balrog-on-Balrog action. XD

In fact there is a precedence of Maiar (not specifically balrogs though) reproducing as Luthien's mother Melian is a Maiar.

I don't think so. Maiar are basically little pieces of Eru, whereas orcs, elves, dwarves, hobbits, and all other such creatures aren't directly connected to Eru.

Doesn't exactly mean they can't reproduce, just that story never mentions it. But if you're right, it's for the best. No one deserves Balrog-on-Balrog action. XD lol kkkkk

I have read the Silmarillion innumerable times, love depiction of Morgorth but should look scar up, but Sauron looks more of a woman than a man. Still I enjoy reading this story and looking at this art. Do hope you can make more of this soon.

A touch of humor lacking in the canon text for the "Silmarillion".
One lost in the deep ocean
One lost in the depths of MiddleEarth.
One sails the heavens as the Morning Star, with Earendil as captain of the ship.
The elves lost the ability to forge new Silmarilli and I suppose new palantirs are beyond them now as well.
I wonder if AN Y of the elves who awoke at Cuivenien still live today in the original bodies...

While I am not a fan of the more feminine depictions Sauron, I do like the look that you gave Morgoth, more handsome looking then he probably would be at this point of the story yet is still towering and menacing and I do think that it is a good scene overall.

 Poor old Sauron - utterly denied the chance of any snappy come back to the effect of "Well I may have lost a fortress but it was YOU who lost a Silmaril, you and your little doggy too!" by virtue of the fact that THIS IS MORGOTH and it occurs to me that Sauron is more than smart enough to avoid pushing his luck any further than he has to around old scarface (witness the fact that he preferred to live AWAY from The Dark Lord's equivalent of the Fuhrerbunker).:D (Big Grin)
