Sauron by Gerwell Sauron by Gerwell
8D

It's an animation, so it might rape your internet a bit, until it's fully loaded.
I had big plans for this but I couldn't do exactly what I wanted, so I rushed it in the end haha.

Sauron J.R.R Tolkien

Oh wow, this is beautiful and so very Sauron :) I love how you've split it with the "good" or at least seductive side and the Dark Lord evil side. I especially love the contrast of his eyes, with the right eye reminding me of the Eye, while that beautiful, golden left eye is gorgeous, but has an unnerving quality to it as well. And I love what you did with the red highlight by his left eye, too.

 

I like also how you carried the design for his headdress over through both sides and how it complements the shape of the Ring letters in the background. And that animation with the sparks is the perfect final touch. This picture stunning shows Sauron's power, dark beauty, and grace, while also making it clear that he is dangerous and very dark. Love it!

This is what Sauron should look like in the jackson films if they reveiled him.
Elegant, quiet, cunning, welcoming and inviting.
Not SAURON SMASH!!!

"This is what Sauron should look like in the jackson films"
Nope!!!!!,in PJ movie at the beginning of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, it was Second Age,in that age Sauron lost his ability to take  beautiful form after fall of Numenor,so he could only take ugly and dark big form,just like he looked like in movie,or pretty similiar.

On this art he looks  like from manga/anime

Whaaat? he was always corrupted because of Morgoth.
He lost his ability to take beautiful form after fall of Numenor.Then he could only take dark,ugly form.He probably looked similar to the movie version,at the beginning of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

So beautiful face! (or faces) :faint:
The contrast between two sides is fascinating, the left one is seemingly peaceful while the right one is a warlord in action. He looks so angelic - and evil of course! :+favlove:

Its a really cool image. I like the little embers, but I kinda want to see either more of them, or some flames! Otherwise it looks amazing, I love the detail on your armor!
