"He was as a mountain that wades in the sea and has its head above the clouds and is clad in ice and crowned with smoke and fire; and the light of the eyes of Melkor was like a flame that withers with heat and pierces with a deadly cold."
Well at first it was kind of hard for me to imagine fire and ice together and fitting. Gut I wanted to draw dear Melkor clad in these elements.
I did a little brainstorming and had the idea to draw his firery hair as blue as ice. I also imagine this fire so cold that it stings more than any flame.
I quite like what I came up with.
I hope you like, too!
