Here's my attempt to portray Gollum, one of the most fascinating characters ever written by Tolkien. Just like many other artists in this industry The lord of The Rings had a huge impact on my childood and it was definitely the main reason why I became an artist, so when I found this concept made by Carlos Amaral of a new design for this character I instantly fell in love with it. I then decided to add a personal twist to the pose and enviorment in order to make it work as a 3D Illustration and got inspired by official 3D miniatures from Weta. Everything from the environment to the eyes was made in Zbrush by hand and no scans were used.
I also want to thank Alberto Casu for helping me out for the layout of the environment and for some very uselful feedback
Hope you like it!
