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)

Painting without references.

Characters by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Thank you so much dear!! :heart: This was my first try to depict them as I imagine , it's a work of few years ago :) 
Is not exactly the Tolkien's canon, in this illustration they are a bit different but this is another story that I like very much! ! ;)

You are very welcome :heart: :hug:
It does not have to be Canon to be good :)
As I said I think the Version how you draw /Paint Melkor is very beautiful and I love this very much :heart:
It would be boring if everything would be the same.
I have heard about the Story I think, is it "The Black Silmarillion" ?
I will read that ^.^ I am very interested :heart:

I have read the original silmarillion and loved it very much, especially feanor and nerdanel, beren and luthien and of course melkor and sauron :), and varda hehe, she's very sparkly I like that XD <33

But I am very openminded for different Versions too :)
You did a great Job :heart:

I really appreciate your kind words! ! Thank you!  I am also openmind and I love to read alternative versions of the stories. I am aware that many times this piece was misunderstood :giggle:
I am so,  it so funny to draw things that I like but I am aware also that if I to paint about Canon I would have more success, maybe. But it does no matter ;) I am happy however :heart:

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!

Thank you so much! I understand that my work can't be to accepted by all, and also can hurt something. But this is an expression of my feeling. This book,( Black Silmarillion), is very impressive (for me), but I have much respect for Tolkien too.
It's true, Melkor is the real protagonist of the Silmarillion and I find his story really sad. Yes, Feanor is similar to him :)
