When the members of White council including Gandalf the Grey, Saruman the White, Lady Galadriel and Master Elrond talked about the Necromancer at Dol Guldur as well as the quest of the dwarves and a hobbit in reclaiming the Lonely Mountain, Gandalf has mentioned the rising darkness in a place called Greenwood the Great. After falling under the influence of a necromancer (Sauron), it was then called as Mirkwood.

Mirkwood is a deep, very large forest in Rhovanion. It is populated by nasty creatures that peer out with large eyes at night. It is also inhabited by Silvan elves. Legolas Greenleaf, a member of the fellowship of the ring and Thranduil‘s son, was a prince of Mirkwood. There is nothing there that can be eaten and sunlight does not penetrate through the heavy foliage – the main reason why it is dark and horrifying.

Here’s a collection of artworks, illustrations and photo manipulated images depicting Mirkwood – a dark, scary forest populated by scary creatures.
