The darkening of Valinor (Melkor and Ungoliant) by Brunild The darkening of Valinor (Melkor and Ungoliant) by Brunild
Melkor and Ungoliant..( painting inspired to the Black Book of Arda)

Known in English as The Black Book of Arda, Black Silmarillion or The Chronicles of Defeated, is a novel published in Russia by Vassilyeva N. Nekrasova around 1992, based on JRR Tolkien's Silmarillion. According to the book Vassilyeva Nekrasova, the Vala Melkor was not originally the Great Enemy of Middle-earth, but a wise teacher and a martyr, while the Creator Eru Il˙vatar and the Valar are represented as tyrants without remorse.
In Arda, Melkor tried to act in accordance with his own thinking, but this was against the will of the Creator.

You're right! She is really big according the description of the book but my drawing has grown so and I have decided not to change it. 

Thanks for your comment :)

Ciao! Grazie, questa cosa Ŕ inerente ad una fan fiction russa ispirata al Silmarillion dove i "buoni" in realtÓ sono cattivi, gretti ed egoisti! (a me piace un sacco, eh giÓ sono un' eretica)

Ah Melkor, my lord, what shampoo art thou using that makes thy hair so fluffy?! XD

But jokes aside, it's an awesome illustration, and it shows you put a lot of heart in your pictures <3 By the way, is Ungoliant far behind him that she's so small?

Thanks dear :giggle:!! I'm crying with laughter, you are very nice but also very kind ;)
Ungoliant, in my design is quite small. I decided to illustrate it so, because I liked it better the final result.

This gives me creeps - just what I imagine when someone says 'evil beauty'. Melkor's face still looks handsome, but his gaze and expression is already full of hate. Good job! :+fav:
