Naked Sauron by Art-Calavera Naked Sauron by Art-Calavera
My humble interpretation of what an armorless Sauron could look like.

This sure is a very interesting design. I really like how dangerous, twisted and evil he looks. Great work with the lighting and details, especially on his face and chest.

Ohhh I love it! I either read it or heard it in the many hours of the 'making of' LOTR that they fashioned Sauron's helm to look like a horse skull. I love it how he still looks kind of...horsey <3 <3 (I'm seriously going to have nightmares now though...)

Definitely wouldn't want to see that face coming in to read me a bedtime story!

Yeah, you're probably right.

Wow... Yeah he's much less creepy as a giant eye.
Great work though!

Awesome interpretation! And friendly reminder he had a body and was not (only) a giant creep eye of malevolence.

Gracias Cecilia!
Teoooooricamente Sauron deberķa tener algun tipo de forma fisica, aunque nunca queda realmente claro en ningun manuscrito de Tolkien.
En las peliculas decidieron hacerlo incorporeo por su propia voluntad, porque les gustaba la idea de que Sauron fuera una presencia descarnada que evoca todo lo maligno, y funciona vastante bien para mi gusto.

De todas formas, siempre me gusto jugar con la idea de como se verķa el gran embaucador en la tercera era, sin armadura.

Bueno.. si no me ecivoco habia una escena en el libro en la ce Golum describe habido ser torturado por Sauron describiendolo a solo tener "quatro dedos en su mano negra".

P.S : Lo siento mucho si me ecivocade en alguna palabra o en la grammatica es que mi espanol , no lo e usado mucho en un ano entero.

Wouldn't an armourless Sauron be Annatar? 
Assuming he has a physical presence to begin with.

That's a tricky one. Sauron lost his Annatar shape when he died for the...second or third time, I don't remember, and got stuck on his "Evil Lord" shape.
This rendition would cover his looks on the 3rd age, when his body was already killed like ...a million times. Therefore, I take the liberty of making him look kinda messy and broken.

Ahh, right, gotcha. I sorta assumed this was just your take on an armourless Sauron at another point, should've expected you'd actually know lore x3

His "Dark Lord" appearance is never described in the books, so it can look like anything you want.
It only says that his skin is blackened by his inner heat, and his appearance is a mirror of his twisted malevolence.

i always pictured mainly his arms and chest blackened from forging the one ring and as for the inner malevolence twisting his appearance i don't disagree but keep in mind he didn't always look like that but then again this is from a wiki page on a long afternoon some while ago

I'm sorry, but the universe would be at least twenty percent more awesome if that had happened.
