“It’s a dangerous business, going out your door.

Did a sketch of Morgoth from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. Really enjoying the book and it was fun to take another shot at this character; someone I’ve been trying to depict for years. The idea here is that the Silmarils continue to burn him even while set in the iron crown he forged to hold them, eradicating the flesh of his head as he continues to wear them in spite of his agony. I plan on doing a more refined version at some point in the summer perhaps as this is quite sloppy
