Inktober - Day 1 'Ring'

Decided to participate in the inktober challenge this year, it’s my first time doing this challenge.

I have no ink though, so I used a simple pencil instead. I guess I got a bit carried away with this one, I don’t think I’ll be able to draw such detailed pictures for every prompt. xD

Don’t know if I’ll manage it but I’ll try to draw something for every prompt every day.

Thanks for taking a look! :)

Wow! What a creative and beautiful way to showcase both the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy. 

See, Jackson? It CAN be done tastefully.

Whoa, this is amazing work! 

I love all the details that you put into it!  It's so cool to see the last three ring bearers in the same pic.  It's the beginning and the end  of the There and back again; A Hobbit's Tale and The Lord of the Rings.  I really enjoy how you illustrated the smoke issuing from Smaug's mouth, it's got that lovely classic feel.  Is that the Lonely Mountain in the back?  Also, I can't stop staring at the one ring.  The amount of detailing that you put into it, right down to the script!

I've been doing Inktober for a few years now and found that it is an inclusive/uplifting community.  

Welcome to Inktober!

Thank you so much! :)

The details were much work but it was also very fun to draw, so I'm very happy that I put so much effort into the drawing. :)  I thought everything in the picture should revolve around the ring, so I put all the important characters that are connected to it in the picture. (Also I needed an excuse to draw a dragon, that's the real reason why I chose something Tolkien-verse related for this prompt, lol XD)
Yeah, that's supposed to be the Lonely Mountain and the entrance to Erebor in the right corner. That is also the part I did last, when my motivation to draw all the details started to leave me, hence the poorly drawn statues. xD
Haha, I actually used a reference picture for the ring, I admit drawing all those elven runes in it was the least fun part.

Thank you for the warm welcome, I'm happy to be joining the challenge this year! :) (And hope to do so next year as well.)
