Not a final idea for Morgoth, nor for the Silmarils.

This is really awesome. He definitively looks otherworldy here, so above the children of Iluvatar ^^
He looks so ruthless, and dangerous and powerful. So dark and magical. Totally fitting to The Silmarillion's depiction of Morgoth ^^
The sketchiness gives a sensation that we can't grasp him, he eludes anyone

Thank you so much for sharing your impression :thanks: I didn't think of the sketchiness this way before, there is something in it.

A beautiful interpretation of Morgoth, full of dark magisty but with hint of sadness :)

actually when you read the book, morgoth's crown seems to appear as dark, ugly and iron. You gave it a marvellous look, a reminiscence of a long forgotten beauty; actually the beauty of the days of light in Aman.
Short: It's fricking awesome, love it!

Thank you :thanks: It's more capture of his personality than actual physical form, thus your idea of the days of light reminiscence fits well. I wish I have thought of it myself! Still I would see him quite alike, though in a more practical armor and yes - the crown would have to be heavier and rougher. An iron toxic waste with imprisoned light in it.

even so...I think this is the morgoth i'd fear the most. Because the tainted light still remains in his never-darkened eyes. Just gives me the feeling I'm watching a god...
Although I'd love to see your version of the "other" morgoth you described :)

Very well done. I'm glad to see some mask-less versions of him floating around.
