Manwe and Melkor by Dootsyblue Manwe and Melkor by Dootsyblue
so I’ve been reading up on Manwë and Melkor and decided I really wanted to draw my interpretation of them 
(I also got a lovely new brush pack omg)

I like that obvious contrast between these two. And I like how Melkor looks like he doesn't give a fuck.

I'm taking it that Melkor has a thing for black. He's so badass. Shouldn't he be ugly tho?

I don't know who these guys are, but you gave them very cool expressions so I guess it's enough to like them ^^ Are they twins or something ?

Brothers at least. They're known as Valar, and they're what you could call the archangels of Middle-Earth, or they are called gods by some. Manwë is the leader of the Valar but Melkor was kicked out of Aman (the fabled "West"), because he had sown chaos and lies instead of creating things, being jealous to the rest of the Valar.

Melkor then escaped back to Middle-Earth and took Mairon with him. Melkor based a fortress called Utumno, and became known as Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Mairon became known as Sauron his liuetenant, and later as the second Dark Lord in Lord of the Rings.
