Dragon of the First Age by rubendevela Dragon of the First Age by rubendevela
Ancalagon, the greatest dragon created by Morgoth, faces Eärendil in his flying ship at the beginning of a day-long aerial battle that will end the War of Wrath.

I tried very different techniques from the Ungoliant picture. I'm actually worried that I might have depicted Ancalagon too small! He's supposed to have destroyed a mountain range when he crashed from the sky...

Many thanks for helping me picture the sheer enormity of Ancalagon the Black. When I first comprehended that Morgoth's lair during the War of Wrath was a mountain range, and that Ancalagon crushed it when he fell, I remember a having a moment when I just could not understand how large he was supposed to be and how he was killed. While I still don't understand how they killed him, I thank you for depicting him at a proper scale.
