The One Ring

By Kinko-White

“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Beautiful job! And fun fact.

J.R.R. Tolkien died in 1973, turn that date around.. 3 elven rings, 7 dwarven rings, 9 mortal rings, one to rule them all.

How you drew the ring is spectacularly unbelievable. Now here me out, I would critique but I'm terrible at explaining, and my sentence structure ruins my competence to be completely honest. I envy your font writing skills too, I'm like novice and your like Pro Master.

Your techniques are inspiring me to follow you, so the wish has been made RQ: Genie emote

This is beautiful! The detail of the lettering on the ring is incredible--it really looks etched and shiny. I love the watercolor--it works really well with the reflective metal of the ring, and I like the background, how it looks like the ring is dripping or melting, and the white marks above the ring look like lightning, very ominous. Beautiful work!

Damn! I'm in love with this one! It's perfect! :love: 
I really love the colours you used and the background really suits with the ring. :) And with the text next to it.. It's lovely! This should be in the books of Tolkien! :heart:
