The defeated enemy (Melkor and Sauron) by Brunild The defeated enemy (Melkor and Sauron) by Brunild
This painting is inspired to the Black Silmarillion, ( the Silmarillion by Elhe Niennah and Illet that ritell the story from perspective of the dark side).
War of wrath, all is lost: Melkor tell to his Maia, Gorthaur (Sauron), to go away...(My illustration is their farewell hug)

...Melkor curvou‐se sobre o Maia, estendido a seus pés. Ajoelhou‐se, cuidadosamente soltou os dedos empalidecidos do Discípulo.
Os olhos abertos olhavam diretamente para o rosto de Melkor. Vala rangeu os dentes, tentando expulsar as lembranças. ‐ Meu Discípulo, Guardião de Arta... Perdoe‐me, se puder, perdoe‐me por esta dor... Arta não deve ficar sem proteção, compreende? Somente você pode fazer isso, você é o meu único Discípulo... Pegue a espada. Pegue o Livro. É o poder e a memória. Vá. Você lembrará‐se disso quando tudo estiver acabado. Tenho culpa – estou deixando‐o sozinho... Perdoe‐me, Discípulo, não tenho mais forcas. Adeus. E depois ergueu o Maia pelos ombros e, olhando nos olhos, disse asperamente:
- Vá embora.
‐ Sim, Senhor, ‐ respondeu o Maia ( O Livro Negro de Arda - The Black Book of Arda)

Characters by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Beautiful scene. After reading Silmarillion I was recently so astonished when it also turned out that my favourite album from Blind Guardian was wholy devoted to Silmarillion and that they have a scene of Morgoth letting Sauron go at the War of Wrath too... (lyrics here, can't find it on youtube, [link])

You mean, there is a translation of "The Black Book..." into Portuguese? This really is some news. I'm aware of the ongoing translation into English mentioned by MirachRavaia in the comments here, yet I never heard of any attempts to translate it into other languages.

Yes, there is a Portoguese translation of the book. This is the link that I find on the web. I am Italian but understand Portoguese and I read it.
By the way, thanks for the book, is really awesome.

Very strong. It transmits the essence of the silmarillions but in the bad guys. I´ve always wondered why tolkien thought a compendium of legends so extended in time and tragedy with a single and tragic charachter on the center of everything. Melkor is the real protagonist of the Silmarillion, and his fall and how he drag with him some maias and the entire noldor tribe after the oath of Feanör (if you think about it, Feanör and Melkor are quite similar).

Excelent work!
