107th post - Sméagol! (Showcase & Tutorial)

Hi everyone! Well, four months after my latest post, a university break enables me to turn my attention to the blog  once again (for a short stand though). For the first post of 2018 I'll be presenting Sméagol/Gollum. This miniature is part of the BGiME magazines (came with the number 63) and was painted about two months ago, but due to lack of time it has been waiting on the shelf for photos and varnishing all this time. So, who is Sméagol? " Ghoul and former Hobbit. Gollum was once a Hobbit of the Stoor strain called Sméagol, who was born not far from Gladden Fields in the Vales of Anduin. In 2463 of the Third Age, Sméagol's cousin Déagol found the One Ring while fishing and Sméagol immediately murdered him for it.  The power of the Ring lengthened Sméagol's life, yet it warped him beyond recognition. Thereafter he was called Gollum because of the nasty, gutteral sounds he made when trying to speak.  Description from David Day&
