Fortress Udun by Grrrod Fortress Udun by Grrrod
A scribble of Morgoth's first fortress. Not paying too much attention to the mythos, just riffing.

When you're as big a Silmarillion fan as me, you know that Morgoth's first fortress had an extensive underground section. This makes this image extra-intriguing! :plotting: I love it!:deviation:

Grrrod Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Well maybe that dam-front at the bottom is just the beginning? That the problem with both Angband and Utumno, they're mostly underground! Doesn't make for an easy composition if you want to make it threatening fron ground level.

Valadix Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Certainly true! I'm sure there would be a way to portray the extensiveness of the underground tunnels from ground level, though. Maybe lots of pits and vents for the blazing forges and furnaces? :shrug:

Wonderful original view. Even the colour isn't misplaced for such a dark place. Very well executed scribble here :)

Flame of Udun!!! So this is where the Balrogs were created...

I wonder if Balrogs come out of the ground like Orcs do? Maybe he bred them from kittens.

They are fiery spirits, Maiar [link] who joined Melkor, limited to seven powerful beings in the end; no one breeds them ;) Great vision of the fortress! :thumbsup:

woutart Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2010
Ahh, but Orcs are twisted Elves, thus I think they breed just like other mammals. :lol: This out of the ground stuff is movie madness to me ;)

Balrogs bred from kittens... hmm, or maybe he crossbred men with bats and added some sulfur...

Dragons crossed with Elves maybe? Not sure the timeline fits...
