Morgoth  The Black Foe by rinthcog Morgoth  The Black Foe by rinthcog
Melkor was the most powerful of the Ainur, but turned to darkness and became Morgoth, from whom all evil in the world of Middle-earth ultimately stems and the ultimate antagonist of Arda. This scene is during the Battle of Sudden Flame, before he defeats Fingolfin. He holds Grond his hammer in his left hand but we only see the tip of its claw in this image.

Really digging the nebulae behind Melkor, as a way of indicating that he is the greatest Enemy in Tolkien's mythos. Also, I like the design of Grond in these pictures you've done!

Great work. I find that a lot of artists draw Morgoth as "monster-like", or as a faceless suit of black armor, but you have to remember that he's inspired by Lucifer, the most powerful and charismatic of Eru's children, who fell into disgrace. This piece captures his power and menace perfectly.
