Default in dire need of the inscription texture for the ring in LOTR

can anyone help me??, doing a project with the ring and need the texture for the ring in a decent image size, so I can use it as a background for either tracing so I can make it the file size I need, or a pointer in the right direction to where such things can be found..

Thanks in advance..

Carsten! Where've you been bud? We've been missing you 'round here. Hope you've been feeling ok. Anyway, on to your question: You might start with looking at some of Tolkien's reference books that he's put out on lotr....unfinsished tales, simarillion, etc. If I remember, he details the elven alphabet with images in one of them. Or if you want to go the nordic route, look into the Futhark which is the old runic alphabet.

The same, but scanned (less perfect, but handwriting instead of straight curves).
