Maedhros before Morgoth by Gold-Seven Maedhros before Morgoth by Gold-Seven
Maedhros, after his capture by Orcs and Balrogs, is brought before the Deep Throne of Morgoth - so close to the Silmarils and yet so far... and unaware yet of the fate that awaits him.

Not an actual scene from the Silmarillion, but Morgoth couldn't have passed over the opportunity to gloat. Drawn for Anna, for whom I've already done "Maedhros alone stood aside". More Silmarillion art to come, yay!

Media: *lists on fingers* Watercolour, Photoshop, Painter 8. Did I leave anything out? *pencil pipes up "me! me! me!"*

This is an awesome picture! Well done!
Of course pretty much all your pictures are awesome, including your scraps.

Melkor once spread himself over all MiddleEarth, tainting it with his being, and some of it became Morgoth. When he was cast out beyond the stars, his evil essense remained. Someday he will return, finding the way to avoid the barrier guarded by Earendil. Then he will be slain by Turin !

Sauron was not as cruel as Morgoth, but what he lacked in cruelty he made up for in cunning and deception.

Good grief you do terrible things to that boy. Sorry, noble Elf, son of Feanor, &c. ahem.

i just started to read the silmarillion, and seeing those pictures i can'T wait to be through that marvellous book.

I wish i'll see the day when stories from the silmarillion are made into films...

I like how you made Morgoth look eldritch and dark, he seems very power from his posture, but also crippled

Beautiful piece of art! I love the way you drew Morgoth. He is my favorite in Silmarillion !

Actually, Morgoth seems quite melancholic here. Perhaps the stress of moral depravity is stronger than he thought?

Yes, I think so. I imagine him bent beyond recognition under the weight of his own depravedness.

An intriguing idea about his character.
