Sauron: War of the Last Alliance by MattDeMino Sauron: War of the Last Alliance by MattDeMino
This didn't start out as Sauron. But everything is better with some LOTR up in it.

Also, not really happy with how it turned out, but I'm sick of looking at it.

Why? This is much more similar to Tolkien's description (from the Silmilarion, since he never appeared in the books except for a very brief moment in the end as a shadowy avatar right before dying). The design in Jackson's trilogy was somewhat rather similar to Melkor. Tolkien based Sauron and Melkor on the devil himself. So he intended to have spikes sticking out of the helmet to make it look more devious.

Idk maybe the tall pointy "ear" prong things. If you look at just his head it looks like a medieval, demonic batman. He also mentioned that it didn't start out as Sauron so who knows?

Well, yeah. Tolkien based Sauron on the devil himself. Since Tolkien was a Catholic and read the Bible a lot. He saw the devil as a tall being with horns. The movie version of him is somewhat similar to Morgoth's helmet.
