This is beautiful, the only piece of art I've seen that comes close to what I had in my head when I read this!

I think all spiders would look like daemons this close up.

That is exactly how I thought of it in my mind, when she demands the Silmarils from Melkor. Great work!!.

Ungoliant: "Give it to me... i must have it... precious treasure... I DESERVE IT!"
Melkor: - Where can i run, where can i hide the Silmarils!?; "Gems of Treelight,... THEIR LIFE BELONGS TO ME!" 

Epic picture of the epic scene from holy bible of fantasy genre.

I always liked that the two greatest evils of middle earth were warring against each other for dominance. The added irony I noticed was (in the book) Two Towers, Shelob's brief backstory indicates Sauron begrudgingly fears/respects the descendant/reincarnation of Ungoliant. This is one of those scenes I want to see played out, between the fallen god Melkor/Morgoth face against the queen of Spiders (Lloth? Fuck no!) Ungoliant.
