The Fellowship is an unofficial Tolkien lore group that brings every fan together from his great works in the Middle-Earth universe!
far be it from me to needlessly criticize an artist's work, but why on Eru's green Arda does everyone jump on the metrosexual bad-guy train? it's what turned me off to the MCU back when the first Thor and Avengers movies came out.
now Sauron i can excuse, given that he was reported to have had a "fair" form once upon a blue moon. but Morgoth too? i always imagined him as tall, strongly-built, with a long black beard and a soot-stained face: not some benedict cumberbatch wanna-be
As you said yourself, from Sauron we know for certain he could take a very pleasing physical form as Annatar, the Lord of Gifts, until the destruction of his body during the downfall of Numenor.
For Morgoth we do not have such explicit records (edit: actually we do, see Scifi.stackexchange.com), but keep in mind that originally Melkor as one of the Valar and first creations of Eru Illuvatar could very well have possessed an enthralling appearance similarly to Sauron until his first defeat and imprisonment at the hands of the Valar or later degenerations / cripplings (e.g. the duel with Fingolfin). He surely didn't look nearly as advantageous later on.
I'd also like to point out that especially the early stages of Arda's history (which this picture would be set in) are dominated by the Elves which you could easily classify as being hyper-metrosexual. So it would kind of make sense for Melkor and Sauron to adapt under some circumstances :-P
