Melkor by Nahar-Doa Melkor by Nahar-Doa
''Melkor was in his origins the mightiest of all the Ainur and the greatest in knowledge. During the Song of Creation his strange thoughts produced Discord, marring the fabric of reality even before its creation. Through pride, malice and a desire to dominate the wills of others he fell into darkness. He became the first Dark Lord...''

This illustration shows us Melkor's first shape. I will illustrate Morgoth soon.

I am really anxious for your Morgoth!  Your vision is incredible!  I am sure that he is one of the most impossible characters to draw because of his complexity - like Lucifer.  And yours is one of the best I have ever seen.  Thank you for sharing!

This is an astonishing piece and one of the very best Melkord I've ever seen. The expression is perfect, as well as the ominous shadow-shine that is spreading across his face.

I definetely love your style and drawings. Your designs are like the ottoman's art, intrincate and beautiful but at the same time imposing and magnificent. I think you did your best in this drawings in Melkor's eyes, they are trully well draw, and his face is almost real. He is still fair but at the same time he's the Enemy, the evil abhorrent he will become later and the shadow growing in the right to the shape of Morgoth is worthy of a genious. I trully enjoyed seeing and faving this wonderful drawing. This would be even more impresive coloured...Or maybe not?

Regards

First of all, Thank you for your thoughts and comment. :) You know, this means so much to me. And also, I was trying to give you these feelings that you just said and I am grateful if I could do that. :) About the colours, I was thinking the same but, I dont know... Do you guys, wanna see these drawings in colours? I want to illustrate them in colours too and I was thinking maybe watercolours.

You're welcome, and was a pleasure to comment on this wonderful artwork. And if it was your intention while drawing this I must say it is thanks to your art, because it achieves to express that to the careful viewers. Thanks to you for sharing.
And about the colours... I think a digital colouring will be better, because maybe a failed watercolour colouring could destroy that beatiful pencil drawing, even if I trust in your skills with them.

I want to see more of these intrincate and beatiful designs and drawings. Maybe more Valar? Another LotR character?

Regards
