if Star Wars can do another trilogy.....well...
Something i would actually pay money to see over and over would be another Middle-Earth trilogy!
About the FIRST Dark Lord, Melkor! i mean,
there's so much they could do!;
The First Dragon, when it breaks loose before Melkor wishes it too and the elf archers drive it back
The Lord of the Balrogs; Gothmog, and several Balrogs
the creation of the Orcs
Aaaaaagh! 
It'd be so awesome! :iconlaplz:

I agree. Since I discovered more about the first and second ages, I've wondered if it could ever work into a movie series. I'd especially like to see more of the Balrogs :D
I don't know how well it would translate over, but I wouldn't doubt they'll get around to it eventually, if Tolkien is willing ^.^

Siiiigh,
well, withouttolkein.....
well, they could i guess, right? i mean whoever owns his rights? i dunno, don't know how that works.
Still even if they don't do that it was a epic ride through middleearth with the Lord of the Rings movies and the Hobbit movies :3

...but i'll still hope for another prequel trilogy.

This is stupendous! I'd love to see a step by step on how you draw up rough sketches of forms and whatnot, I am filling my sketch book with practice and your art is amazing!

Woooooaaah!

This has to be one of the best (and I've seen a LOT) rendition of Melkor!

All it misses is a darker colour instead of the yellow light, but hey, details, details!

Awesome, epic work!

Amazing stuff. Because of the way his body is positionned, he looks very powerful and the light on the left compared to dark mist on the right is truly what gives him something more than the typical Morgoth reproductions found here on DA. Its as if he is truly turning into his most terrible form. He appears to be holding the Silmarils - if so he should be carrying a spear because that's the weapon he had at that moment - but that's only the Tolkien fan in me talking here, heh.

thanks, you make me feel this stuff is cool !
you are right for the spear but as i've said the character was feannor on the start... so he have a big old sword :)

It's a very minimal detail that has no effect on the quality of the artwork, of course! Well done, once again.
