    Make the flames more realistic and add some yellows/reds mixed in. Also, make the blue gem red or orange to match the theme, and maybe center the ring up because its more towards the bottom right now.

    this one looks really nice, I just think that the purple inside the ring would be better in a tone of pink, something less saturated (just a bit) and more red-ish (not too much).

    Some of the shading seems too dark too me, maybe smooth them out a little. The purple shading highlights could be yellow instead from the fire reflection.

    Well the light coming off the fire would only hit the outsides of the ring now the inner side, there would be a little light hitting the inner but not too much. so I would remove the purple from the inner and make it a darker gray and then the purple on the outer side make it light yellow from the fire.

    However, I think purple is better because PeeKay said me to add purple here:

    Yes, coz gold-purple is a nice association. :)
    Btw, i think you exaggerated with the contrast a bit, looks kinda overcontrasted, without any trace of texture.
    In the future, try to avoid overcontrasting.

    Well, I couldn't find a way to lower the contrast too much, I just used contrast tool to decrease it a bit. Is this good?:

    Get rid of the shading/black lines in the middle of the rings circle and just make it a solid color, it makes it look rigid and weird. After this ill see where it stands.

    well I liked the runes inside the ring, and this is why I said a more pink like tone to the shading. Now it looks kinda dull and not so epic (this is why in the end I don't listen that much to you guys -sorry-, there is a point where critics turn into straightforward directions/orders and I do not like that much)

    Well, I always listen to reviewers words but sometimes I have the opposite opinion, including this one. I think the purple colors and the runes should be returned(even the blue color of gem) as you say too. It looks really monotone and boring right now, every thing is orange/yellow. However, they won't approve it if I don't listen to their reviews(No offense at all).

    Well first, i didnt mean the designs in the inner part of the ring i meant the thick black lines on the TOP of the ring.. they make the ring look ridged and wierd shaped. I will end my review and go on from here.

    I don't want to bother or upset you but you said "middle" of the ring and I thought you meant the inner part. You had to say "top" part. Anyways, here it is done.
