Silmarillion_ Melkor and his lieutenants by Daswhox Silmarillion_ Melkor and his lieutenants by Daswhox
And here is an illustration of Melkor, Sauron and the other lieutenants ;

Gothmog (I am not inspired by his version of the film / this is a lord of Balrogs still, it must be more impressive)
Ancalagon, father of winged dragons/ Black dragon
Glaurung, father of dragons earth;
Carcharoth Lord of the werewolf;
Thuringwethil.vampire messenger.

I have not read all of them, but I look forward to learning more about them.

Watercolor/ A3/ Silmarillion/ Tolkien.

This is great in so many levels. I'm really liking how new and original your takes on this guys are.
Also your armor ornaments are exquisite.

I had no idea there were vampires in Tolkiens stories, what role do they even play? Or she for that matter?

in the Silmarillion, it speak very little - just a few lines-vampires. one Elf takes on the appearance of one of these creatures in an attempt to fool the enemy. So, yes, they exist XD simply, they are not put forward as dwarves and elves.

For now, I could not answer you, I have not finished the book and not read Tolkien's letters. But obviously, this is a people like any other land morgoth.

Eh, i guess they're not a big threat like the Orcs as they multiply like a fiery plague.

obviously not. it seems to be a rather reclusive people.
I know that for the werewolf, them, they are more important as they surround the courtyard of Sauron, during one of the periods. but vampires must be the same level as the living trees. As you are not circulated in the land, you do not risk anything.

I guess those kinds ends up as fillers in the LOTR games then.

Gothmog is AWESOME! It makes sense that, given he's a lieutenant, as a Balrog he was a higher maia before being corrupted. Fantastic!

Thuringwethil is pretty.
