MY FIRST SMEAGOLS FROM 1991 by smeagolisme MY FIRST SMEAGOLS FROM 1991 by smeagolisme
Well...these I found in an old folder from my third-grade year of elementary...I had just turned eight...and was already in this Smeagol-fever state, which has never left me!
I remember drawing this after finishing the Hobbit...
The funny thing is, now I see them after so long, for they had been lost for more than 20 years...that this guy here almost looks the same as his movie version!!!
Imagine my surprise when I first saw the movie version...He was phisically just like I had imagined him!!!...Only that my Smeagol had grey-green eyes, which changed to a fierce lit up green when the "evil" within was speaking...Even before we actually called that "evil" Gollum...
...Fun fact: I recall drawing Smeagol with a ragged cloak also, "to cover from the cold" when he came to hunt Bilbo for the ring...but according to my headcanon, he lost all his clothes when he was taken prisoner and tortured in mordor...Let's see if I can find more of these between my old stuff...I have two pages already!...I'll still rummage and see what I can find...

This drawing here is supposed to represent Smeagol, in the upper picture, being happy and with a small leather charm in the shape of a tiny bag hanging from his neck...that's where I believed him to keep his ring, after he got tired of using it all the time.

The second and lower represented Smeagol crying over the loss of his "precious" after Bilbo's escape from the cave...

-Note that I couldn't even draw caves so well yet...hehheh, those stalactites look like mountains!!!-

Well...just an old memory I wanted to share with you guys...I hope you find a place in your heart for this old scribbles!!!
I certainly hold them very dear...

I think it is neat that you found your first Smeagol/Gollum drawings! 

I particularly like the way you drew his feet, for some reason!  That is some good anatomy too, really good for an 8 year old!

.

I don't have any drawings from when I was 8.(fire)  Anyway, I remember getting in trouble with my 3rd grade teacher for drawing on my class and homwork.  I drew turtles and other animals everywhere!  LOL!

I think it's unbelievable!!! I didn't even knew I still had them!

Thank you!...I still find it funny...in a way...but yes, his feet are probably the best he has!

Oh my...fire??? Mine (most of them) were destroyed by water (floods)...such irony.
Hahaha! Same here!...I spent my schooltime drawing more than taking note...but the teachers who still tried to stop me from doing it really hated me...because I was actually LISTENING to them...hence I didn't need any notes!...I could have my scrapbook empty of notes, but at the hour of truth I would pass all the tests!...Sadly many though I tried to be disrespectful...but I swear I did listen..I just loved drawing too much to stop...

Fire.  Yes.  Both tragic and a blessing.  I will spare you.

.

Lol!  Feet are sometimes a challenge to draw.  Not for you!  Not even at 8!  :clap:

.

I liked most of my teachers...that 3rd grade teacher was a bitch though.  It wasn't disrespect for me-I just couldn't help myself.  Paper+pencil= draw!  :(

Oh my...yes, better leave it there!...oh...:hug:
.
Ah yes. I still find them difficult to get them right as I want to!
.
Oh my lord-...same here!!! Most of my teachers were even my friends in a way...but my third grade one loathed me with all her life. Some yelling or even slight insults as "silly" or "dumb" would come at me if I dared saying anything at all in lessons...She even hit me with a book over the head once, because I dared ponting at her she'd written with a grammar mistake...I know I shouldn't have said anything...but she was teaching basic english to us, and she wrote Chiken instead of Chicken...I swear I didn't try to be rude...I just HAD to open my big fat mouth and ask her if there wasn't a "C" missing there in that word...and she came at me, slammed the book of grammar hard, against my head, and told me not to be insolent.
Anyway, I knew later why she didn't like me.
Apparently my mom talked to her about that fit she had that day, because I of course told her what had happened...and the teacher alleged she wasn't going to treat me better "just becasue I was white and blue-eyed"...such a silly woman. First: my eyes aren't even blue, they're either grey or green, depending on the day...and second, she never had any issues with any other kid in the class, since they -like her- were all from argentine native origins, brown or dark haired, with dark eyes and tanned skin. Damn it how is my colour my fault? Who said I even wanted to be this pale?...Anyway, I don't even hold grudges to her...I just feel pity for her nonsense behaviour. She was the one who thaught me what discrimination by race meant.
.
Hehehe yes!!! why can't EVERYBODY SEE THAT???
Paper+pencil=must draw. Or I'll convulse!!! YOU CHOOSE!...Oh, well *haves a seizure*

Uhm.
I went to school in San Antonio when I was in third grade. My school was mostly Hispanic. Your reasons for your teacher not liking you-was the very same reason my 3rd grade teacher didn't like me.
.
I am white, She was Mexican. She was as terrible to me. I had a White teacher that was mean as hell to me to though. :shrug: I can't see myself bieng a bad kid. What did I do?
.
White people always get accussed of bieng rascist.
.
Rascism(I can't spell it right now!) happen to everyone. Rgardless of who we are.
.
I am sorry that you had to put up with a hateful teacher. It hurts a child to have to deal with an adult who mistreats them. Maybe they are people that deserve to be forgotten? :hug:

I know, that's actually very freaking crazy!!!
Imagine my face when I was there at the two towers premiere...I stared all the movie through thinking "OMG How the heck did they make him the SAME as I always imagined him???? O.O
Everyone used to "see Sméagol/Gollum" as a kind of green weird little monster up to there...I don't know why...but from the readings I had more the impression of a small thinly person with few sharp teeth, few hair and at teh time he meets Frodo and Sam, few clothes also. So I gave him a basic Tarzan Loincloth...
The drawings are regretfully horrible because I was very little when I drew them...but they served their purpose at their time, I think...

Ahahah. How cool that you went to the premiere!! *-*

What? Regretfully horrible? Your Smeagol/Gollum is more expressive than most of my drawings now! xD 
Really, I wish I had been able to draw like you when I was eight!
Anyway maybe you and Peter Jackson have a similar way to imagine things Bunny Emoji-20 (Loving it) [V1]

Hihihi only becasue warner wanted me to!!!

Yup...but hey!...I don't think so! I bet your drawings are good!!!
I still think I was quite bad at it...time helped me get better with practice! =)
I guess so...even though I always saw Smeagol more like an "innocent bystander" possessed from the get going by an ancient evil (gollum aka the voice of the ring)
