This is a great drawing! Not a pretty-fireworky friendly neighbourhood wizard, nor the noble mage, but with his hair disshevelled and wild expression in the eyes - makes me remember the moment when he grabs Frodo and gasps: "Is it secret? Is it safe?!" Great job indeed.
Well that's an interesting comment, because I was worried about that, but no one else mentioned it. I used a white pencil for some highlights, but when I scanned it, it was very blue as it combined with the graphite. So I erased most of the white and let the paper color be the highlight color. But a little white remained, hence the remaining blue.
I think I know the scene where this one came from It's the "You shall not pass" one right? I was looking for reference pictures of Gandalf and I saw it and I was like, Hey! Didn't I just see that 2 seconds ago at the Pencil Club? Wow! Excellent! I love the details, the contrast, you got everything perfect! + fav
