I made this in a couple of hours when i was bored and didn't know what to make.
Since i never made anything of Lord of the Rings, and i'm a huge fan, i decided to make the ring as a test with texturing and lighting.
I guess the render is ok, but i tried to achieve a realistic look, and i think it's not quite there yet.
Anyway, it looks nice.
UPDATE 25-03-'14: Since i learned a lot during the last year i decided to change the lighting and textures of the whole scene.
Please leave a comment, i'd like to know what everyone thinks of it, or if you have any tips please let me know
