Perfect! Morgoth is truly towering here. 

I used this image in a post on The Ruin of Beleriand: truemyths.org/2015/02/17/the-s…

Hope that's OK! Thanks for sharing the great work!

Proudly the High Lord challenges Doom,
"Lord of Slaves!!" He cries!

This is great, my favorite part of the Silmarillion and the whole reason I think "And he lived happily ever after" is not such a good ending as "And he died like a Bad-Ass"

Great work. Loved it.

...this portrayal of Morgoth,
The Prime Dark Lord is by far my favourite but honestly Mentosik, if Grond was longer and bigger (more visceral? More spikes like finish), this work of art would only be a hundred times more brutally awesome. But I have to admit, this is already my wallpaper on my iPhone 5 haha. But still! Make Grond bigger!!

Morgoth seems to be trying his best to see what is that annoying ant walking his way XDDD Probably it's quite difficult to see through that helmet too XDDD Anyway, jokes aside, it's an amazing illustration *u*

Mento I would like to comment at this, this is so far the best picture that depicts Morgoth as well as the duel between Morgoth and Fingolfin. The scenes and the characters of this pic is brilliantly laid out and also the setting is generally correctly drawn out. I love how everything is in black. Also the comparison between the mountain and Morgoth itsself really brought out his sheer size and abonormal strength. Keep on going man. You are quite good at what your doing. Good job!

Best regards-lololsads(wqeq and Wwqeq).

I love the detail and atmosphere. How Morgoth is looming over the oncoming champion. If there was one thing I would modify it would be Grond. I feel like Grond would be a bit more menacing if it were longer. Other than that it is awesome!

I can see how Morgoth would be almost unstoppable. Between his hellish regalia and massive frame, his appearance could easily win him battles without having to actually fight. This is what an impossible challenge looks like.
