Holy sh... second breakfast! 0_O This is exactly how I pictured this bit! (Although you are indeed evidently better at depicting it) :)
Faved!

This is beautiful! I love the colors and how he looks so ethereal and a little sinister at the same time!

Very gorgeous picture. I love the way you've done the robe. The beautiful golden hair and the how the gold is in the robe like water. It's beautiful when combined with the background as well.

However, in the Silmarillion it's noted that Melkor has always been the darkness where Manwe was light. When Illuvatar created the Valar to sing their songs and essentially create Arda, Melkor's song was always known to be one of chaos that ultimately disrupted the others'.
His name Morgoth was only given to him by Feanor as it meant "Dark Enemy" after slaying his father and the elves called him that afterward.

He looks powerful and calm but I definitely see the danger


GOD bless

This is very interesting. I like this 'before' version a lot.

dangerous to who? I don't see Melkor thinking he was getting in trouble chasing the 'flame imperishable'. Okay, just being a bit sassy. Great drawing and great Melkor too!

I like this picture, despite of I always imagine Melkor with black hair. Universe-like background is a good choice ;)

I imagine, that his hair became black in hypostasis of Morgoth. )

As I say in another comment:
- in the thoughts of Eru Melkor and Manw were like brothers, that's why i thought why they cannot look alike or similar. :) -

Yeah it's a very good idea. I see often Manw with blond hair and melkor with dark hair. One blue, another red...

I'm think, now it's some kind of canon in fandom.

Ooooh, that is gorgeous! I love his robes. They look like they're made of mist and fire. :D

It's a beautiful piece!
Though when I first saw it I thought it were Manw, because that's exactly the way I imagine him to be, not Melkor.

Actually, in the thoughts of Eru Melkor and Manw were like brothers, that's why i thought why they cannot look alike or similar. :)
