Ella and Pat - thank you; taking a break from animation and last night decided to go to the mountains - I found Gollum there just coming out of the lake smiling happily. He went diving to find the ring and had it in his hand ... unfortunately the real ring is in the sky behind him, laughing. Poor Gollum is not aware that in his palm is a FAKE RING ...

If you made the ring yourself, it's awesome well done.
But also the composition of the whole picture, the lighting on Gollum and in the mountains :golden_wilber:

And I like the Gimp Mountain it's very mysterious...

But poor Gollum :cry:

Ella - thank you but no, it is still the film studio ring; right now I cannot get even near to matching it.

However, all these ringhs are mine -

Ella - in the movies Gollum continually refers to that elusive ring as 'my precious'.

I bring Gollum a present. But I'm afraid he will see the difference between this fake ring and the real one :oops:



To make and smoothly fit the rim is a big problem. I think the real one is made in a 3D program like blender for instance.
I used blender in the past, but one addiction (Gimp) is enough :)

Ella - a neat ring and I agree with you about making the ring - I am still trying but cannot get close yet.

So I moved on to making terracotta ornaments -
