Melkor -  Morgoth by Brunild Melkor -  Morgoth by Brunild
This is Melkor with his "evil" creatures. This painting is inspired to Black Silmarillion, ( the Silmarillion by Elhe Niennah and Illet that ritell the story from perspective of the dark side)
Anyway I always like to think that Melkor , (in the canonic Tolkien's Silmarillion also), the first-born of Ilùvatar, looks noble and beautiful :P

This is not one of my best work, but it is perhaps the most immediate, less studied.

" E, para combater as criaturas do Vazio, novos seres foram criados por Melkor. Dragões era o nome deles entre os Homens. Eles foram criados do fogo e do gelo, pelo poder da Música da Criação, pelo poder dos feitiços do Escuro e da Luz. Arta deu poder e força aos corpos deles, Noite os dotou de inteligência e de fala. Grande era a sabedoria deles e, desde aquele tempo, os homens diziam que aquele que abater um dragão e experimentar o coração dele, tornar‐se‐á o sábio dos sábios, e lhe serão revelados conhecimentos antigos, e ele compreenderá a fala de todos os outros seres, mesmo que seja a dos animais ou dos pássaros, e as palavras dos deuses serão compreensíveis para ele.
E a Lua emprestou os feitiços dela às criações do Senhor do Escuro, por isso o olhar deles encantava. Os primeiros a chegar ao Mundo foram os Dragões da Terra. Pesado era o passo deles, e a respiração deles era fogo, e os olhos luziam com ouro furioso, e a ira do Mestre que os criou ardia nos corações deles. O Sol nascente os vestiu de cobre vermelho, tal que quando eles andavam parecia que chamas saem de baixo das placas das escamas. E na criação deles, os Demônios do Fogo, Balrogs, auxiliaram o Senhor. Glaurung, que é também chamado de Pai dos Dragões, era dacasa dos Dragões da Terra. E era meio dia, e o Mestre criou os Dragões do Fogo. O sol vestiu os corpos deles com a armadura dourada de escamas flexíveis, e douradas eram as asas imensas deles, e seus olhos eram da cor de safiras pálidas, cor do céu do deserto. O vento gerado pelas batidas das suas asas é ardente, e até mesmo o metal derrete com o calor da respiração deles. Flexíveis, graciosos, velozes como flechas aladas, eles são belos ‐ e a beleza deles é mortal. Na criação deles, o Mestre foi auxiliado pelo seu discípulo
Gorthaur, cujo nome significa ‐ “Aquele que possui o Poder das Chamas”. Da casados Dragões do Fogo, se conhece somente o nome de um dos últimos ‐ Smaug, o Dragão Dourado.... "
(O Livro Negro de Arda - The Black Book of Arda)

I know artists/authors live for feedback. :)
Plus there's not enough niceness in the world, so I try to add to it.

Don't take it personal, but, it's just my opinion from life's experience witnessing egomaniac male friends, they really are inconsiderate, confrontational, violent, therefore, you know not what you love, that's all.

In my life experience I'd never been interested in sort of inconsiderate, violent men. Just loved the way she painted picture of Melkor, that's all.

I was just responding to a comment to an art piece of a figure so gifted and blessed with talent yet somehow, a shallow, selfish being. Having said this, this should not, in any way, be taken as an affront upon you, were strangers.

Anyway, glad you enjoy the art work and good day to you
