Morgoth and Fingolfin Revamped by Art-Calavera Morgoth and Fingolfin Revamped by Art-Calavera
I was reading Evan Palmer’s awesome take on Ainulindalë , and I felt the urge to revamp this old guy!

"Therefore Morgoth came, climbing slowly from his subterranean throne, and the rumour of his feet was like thunder underground. And he stood before the king like a tower. But Fingolfin gleamed beneath it like a star;for his mail was overlaid with silver, and his blue shield was set with crystals; and he drew his sword Ringil, and it glittered like ice, cold and gray and deadly."

My humble tribute to the ultimate confrontation of Fingolfin against Melkor, The Enemy, Morgoth, Master of the Fates of Arda, as described on The Silmarillion.

I love the light of the Silmarils shining through Morgoth's helmet, that was the first thing I noticed. I enjoy seeing all the different depictions of this particular scene; it's so dramatic.

Amazing!!! I like the details you kept in this work. The fact that you can still see some of Morgoth's face through his Helmet fits perfect. How else could his face be scratched by the Eagles if it was all covered up???

Fingolfin tenía de lo que ponen las gallinas. Con esta representación de Morgoth, lo que hizo Beren fue tamaña hazaña, no me hubiese gustado estar en los zapatos ni de Fingolfin ni de Beren (o en cualquiera de los zapatos de los maes que pelearon contra el enemigo.

Well they said none of Tolkien' works could be dramatize at all since the 40s & 50s, but it happened. So you never know, beside Hollywood has made far worst decisions in what gets made & what doesn't.

Oh que bueno, me gusta mucho el diseño de la armadura y el yelmo con las luces saliendole, los colores contrastan mucho entre si y llaman mucho la atención.

Veo que lo subiste como print, llevo un tiempo con curiosidad de que tal va el sistema de prints de Deviantart, que te parece?

Por lo que tengo entendido solo te toca un 10% o un 20% de lo que la gente paga, que si sos una super estrella de Deviantar va muy bien por que algo sacaras-
Lo malo es que DA toca los huevos con el copyright y no se pueden subir fanarts, aungue luego vas a la tienda de prints  y esta lleno, pero bueno.

This certainly has the doomsday's feeling to it. What first caught my eye was the "evil" rising from the depths, with it's shiny armor calling like death itself. Then I noticed the hero on the corner, the glowing last hope ready to take on the world's sins (I'm not even a religious person, funny how this comment got that vibe).
Absolutely tremendous work.
