"...but they were all deceived, ...there was one other ring made ring to rule them all."

Bryce 7.1 and Photoshop CS.

Thanks to all for the votes and my 5th place win. I feel honored to be included with the other winners who were all excellent. And thanks to all who respond to many of my pestering questions as I learn.

After inquiries as to the font used for this ring, one may find the font freely available here:
Under Free fonts on page 3: Elvish Ring NFI v1.2
I like this particular one because it is actually English if you look. The ring says "One Ring To Rule Them All" followed by my name. The ring construction was done in Bryce 7.1 and the font placed using Photoshop CS, then rasterized with additional inner glow/outer/glow/bevel and a slight drop shadow.

Hi, Mike...

You did some beautiful work to create this image. I don't read elvish or dwarfish or even crawfish; so I'm assuming that this is a pleasant greeting to the contest voters. Nice work with the colors and reflections.

I like it too; the lava below adds drama. And I was wondering exactly how you made the shape of that ring! I think mine is a flattened torus, but yours has a sharp line round the centre, which gives it a more ring-like look. I can think of a way I could do it, but it didn't occur to me (I wish it had).

Clever work, and hope it does well in the contest. :-)

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
