This is, like, the most beautiful and stunning picture I've ever seen about them. God, I can't take my eyes off of it. You made perfection.. all the colours, details and their faces - it's just flawless. I'm in love. :love:
And they're the best villains in the universe <3

I love them really much, I can't even imagine how could anyone dislike them. even if they're "evil", they have such great character and personality, and it makes them awesome.~ And your drawings of them are just simply beautiful~ :heart:~

I'm intrigued... where is it exactly that the personality is displayed? Not in LotR or the Hobbit, definitely - as Morgoth was gone by then, and Sauron is far away and serves mostly as an incomprehensibly evil antagonist.

 

Is it in the Silmarillion? Morgoth spends most of the time there either being really, really angry, or sulking that he's not the lord of creation. Sauron's personality isn't elaborated too much upon in those stories either: he's the lord of tol-in-gaurhoth and does a lot of terrorizing and sneaking and torture, but do we get to see that much of his personality?

 

I haven't read the Children of Hurin, so it could be there. I haven't really looked into the History of Middle-Earth series either, there mgiht possible be there.

The vivid colors and almost outlandish shapes seem to perfectly capture the larger-than-life personalities of Middle-earth's two best villains.

<3333 The bad guys rule indeed! I see that just like in my and *Zlukaka's case you discovered the wonders of Silmarillion (and Sauron&Melkor) quite recently and you're developing an amazing obsession with them XD What can I say - NEVER STOP OK? <333 :hug:

I will continue. XD
already seeing many people who fav, I think it would say everything XD
I was surprised, especially since I did not expect this.
And you also continue your drawings. Moreover, your home is Sauron who wears the pants? XD
I am laughed with his hair on his chest. I hope he enjoys it, is that it should not get jammed in some armor. XD

Yep, our Sauron is the manly top guy XDDD (Though not in annatar form, I am drawing it now and I will post it in some week XDDDD He's not manly there XDDD) It's because we believe a smith and warrior should be a big guy XD ( i explained more reasons for this design in description here XD -> [link])

Generally all we do is illustration to our epic Sauron/Melkor fic ( [link] ) that also explains why we draw Sauron and Melkor this way XDDDD Though on the way we also draw a lot of funny and silly stuff like that 'Angband Style' parody XDD By the way thank for the watch <3333 But if you want to get 100% of the story with those guys, you should watch *Zlukaka too because she's the one who draws our version of Melkor XDD (I am the one writing/drawing Sauron XDD because yeah, we also love to roleplay XD)

And ah, Sauron doesn't have ALL that chest hair usually, it's just in his Lord of Werewolves form XDDD Or in-between forms XD

Ah I love the way you paint <33 (I suck with painting XDDD)

this explains it. I understand better, but yes, it goes without saying, it is true that a blacksmith, it is far from pretty boy XD
hooo, you have a good fic and I'll try to read it, it will allow me to improve my English XD
haha, me too, I roleplay, I play sauron and I have a friend who is Melkor.
Say from my side, I see more in the side "I beay I am tempted, you can not get its resistance." After I version has dark lord draw, which is less sexy, but retains a certain charm.

XD We see Sauron as this kind of guy who completes/finishes/remembers about all the stuff that ADHD Melkor 'forgets about in the furious haste of his malice' XDD So this is this big friendly dude that gets everything done, but also this cruel warrior when met in battle, I just love the contrast - and then after the battle he goes into the forges of Angband to make weapons and small beautiful small things like jewelry with those big hands, and he sings while he's working because music has power in it <3 Of course our Annatar, that I havent drawn yet, will be very fair and more womanly and then I dare say he's not going to be the top one XDDDD

Ha, same here! And same here with me and Zlukaka X3 It's great to meet a fellow dark-lords roleplayer and artist X3 And your version of those guys also works very well - there is so much space for imagination in Silmarillion that there is room for all kinds of interpretations of Melkor and Sauron 8D

And oooh, if you read the fic that'd be freaking awesome X3 It might have quite a hard language though because we keep the style as Tolkien uses it in Silmarillion = somewhat archaic english XD But the more you shall learn since practice makes perfect! XD

Something possitif is that the dubbing version Necromancer Sauron is the voice of sherlock holme of the modern series.
and when I see this actor, I say yes, if there is a movie or a series on The Silmarillion, they must be committed, it would suit him so well for at least Annatar see another form, especially that it can adapt and will even shape his voice (he had an imitation golum and snape has laugh out loud in a story XD)

After yes, it has no real representation outside of their armor, if inspired watercolors of Tolkien or major artist.

ho, outright Old English. and well. I am ready to meet the challenge. if I understand English French, blocked why I deal with other language. XD

In any case, it is a pleasure to speak with you; on tumblr is that it is difficult. sometimes I want to respond to comments, but I can not .... it's frustrating, it gives the impression of being snobbish, while I am not and that the opinions of others are very important.

I really like how colorful you made this; instead of seeing the greys and blacks of standard dark lords, it's refreshing to see a wide array of colors, but especially with regards to the character's origins: Melkor has darker, greener colors, suggesting death and decay, while Annatar has bright reds and oranges, hinting towards his origins as a spirit learned in forging and crafting, hence, fire and molten metal. It's also interesting how they both have an androgynous look to them, suggesting a balance of both male and female.

Overall, a superb picture!

I always say that Sauron saw, one side red for the forge, but it is a color that is represented for many witches in the Middle Ages. the cursed redheads caster, but also tempting creatures.^w^
