Beren and Luthien - Donato Giancola
Morgoth - Breana Melvin (x)
Quick random Morgoth painting. My first time drawing the character. I’ll have to draw him a few more times to really get a look I’m satisfied with though.
This Morgoth is probably post-Ungoliant, when he returns to Beleriand and sets himself up in Angband after stealing the Silmarils. There’s a lot of red in the armor, even though I imagine it as black. I guess I just like the feeling of fire reflecting off of it.
Eldar of the First Age (x)

I’ve been slowly working on this on and off for the past several months, and it’s finally done! However, I did grow a lot as an artist over the course of that time period, and as such there are some inconsistencies in terms of style; I went back over an corrected some of this; it’s still there, but I know it’s time to walk away from this one.
This started out mainly as a reference sheet of simple thumbnail versions of the heads of these characters. Some of these represent the first time I’ve drawn a particular character, while others I have drawn several times; in all cases they’re sure to evolve and change the more I draw them.
