Well first picture looks nice but they are all similar to movie sauron. Maybe they were similar and sauron was just little weaker (like god made his best creature (aka human) similar to him, so here could be the same). Tho i didnt read silmarilion to the end so my guess could be already answered =).

You also have this one.


But its not really as appealing, considering its big, but looks more like a troll instead of the source of all evil of middle-earth.

Though I do like the trend of the last one - aka - more like a force of nature. The first ones either were the basis for Sauron's appearance in LOTR, or were based off of that. Though, It would make sense for Sauron to take on a similar appearence that his great master had taken on when he [Melkor] claimed to be ruler of Middle Earth. Sauron made a similar claim.

I'm honestly inching toward the first or second one, because from the last one i do get the evil chaotic part of Morgoth, but not really him being the dark lord, more of a subordinate.

But that really depends. Sauron had the power to change his appearance, which he frequently did during the second age to fool the elven smiths, the ringbearers and Ar-Pharaz˘n, king of Numenor. Though in the end he lost it when his body got destroyed by Eru's divine intervention. But if Sauron was able to change shape, and he was a maiar, shouldn't Morgoth, being one of the Valar, be able to change his appearance as well?

I get that point - in the last one he does not look like the master of evil. I believe Melkor could change his form - when he fled to Angbad, after stealing the Simirils, I believe he became more terrifying in form [aka - became Morgoroth- no longer Melkor].

We've been more a less discussing what Morgoth should look like, but what about Melkor.

I get the fact he needs to be scary, else he would not have such an impact on the rest of Middle-Earth.
but pre-creation he should have a more humane look. He wouldn't have been able to get lots of ainur to join him in his attempt to disrupt the harmony of the music if he had looked like a really big blue smurf with fangs?

Let him be able to shape change

I agree, in the period of the music and the early creation, he should be more human, noble [angelic?] but as time goes by, more of his interior is revealed in his exterior until he finally choses to be Morgoth, not Melkor.

That will be difficult, seeing that he gets arrested and locked up, and afterwards destroys the twin trees and takes the silmarillion, thus earning the name morgoth.

Hmm - yes - they did trust him enough to let him out again. His appearance to change was sudden, once Melkor, but forever thence Morgoroth.
