'It's Ours, We Foundz It! THE PRECIOUS!'

By
Since I'm going to Lord of the Rings: In Concert this Friday evening, I thought I'd "try my paw" (haha, pun) at drawing Ace's gloved paw holding the one...the only...the PREEEECIOUUUS!~ :icontheoneringplz::icongollumplz:

Fun fact, unlike 99% of my drawings, this was done entirely digitally in Photoshop with just the mouse and brush tools. No "pencil-and-paper" step. I'm trying out different drawing methods, and near the top of my list is mastering drawing with the mouse. I'll never abandon good old fashioned graphite, ink and bleached tree-pulp, but I'm always trying to broaden my skills.

As for why the ring is so big in Ace's palm? He's a Pikachu, his paws are tiny compared to human hands. Yes I know the ring can change its size to match the new "barer," but I felt having it look really big in his grip like this would add to the dramatic effect.

[EDIT]: The first attempt looked like the ring was glowing hot rather than shiny-golden, so I played around with the Photoshop filterss and found one called "chrome." I used it on the "Ring" layer, added some colour back to it and here it is! I personally think it looks better.

Here's the "old" version:  It's Ours, We Foundz It THE PRECIOUS by Unownace

Very nice job!

I can see that the ring is very shiny, and therefore is glowing that bright

I can very much see that this is obviously direct reference to The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

While I have (almost) never watched the movies, I have read the books.

I can picture Gollum as a pikachu now in my head and I am laughing XD
But that is also adorable too, so yeah. :3

Personally I feel Gollum doesn't get enough art/ references as Gandolf does, which is a shame because Gollum is more memorable to me.

Anyways, I love the colors, shading, and the fact that you made the ring EXTRA SHINY (YES)

Very nice job!!!!

Thank you for the feedback!

My theory on why Gollum doesn't get as much fan art though is that one, he's very hard to draw with all that emaciated skin-and-bone, and two...he's most decidedly not appealing to LOOK at due to the above point. XD He's SUPPOSED to be ugly, it's symbolic of the corruption of the Ring's influence, but it means only artists who like drawing the macabre will enjoy drawing him. XD

You are very welcome ^_^

Makes sense, though I wonder if someone drew him chibi before?

Also how have you NOT seen the Peter Jackson Lord of the rings movies? FIX THAT! XD

You can skip the Hobbit movies though. The first one was okay, but the second and third...eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhh...

I know the feeling. XD

The Shining, Pulp Fiction and The Fifth Element are on the top of my "I probably should watch these" list. XD
