Wow. Love the expression on the face. It shows the more human side of Gandalf that came out from time to time under stress.

I like it very much ! An excellent vision of face with wrinkles. Very realistic, especially the skin-shine effect. Well done hair.

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.

Thank you! I am very proud of this one, because it was difficult. At first, his eyes were much too far apart, and I had to erase half of the face to correct it. But it was worth it! :)

Simply amazing work. I like the highlights on the hair. Did you use a blue pencil for this, or is it from the scan?
Reply
:iconfizzfoam:
fizzfoam Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2004
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.

Still, it seems to work well after all.. :)

I think I know the scene where this one came from:D 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 :heart:

Yeah, that's the scene. I like your version, too; you're right, the nose and the hair are really something to draw on this guy, aren't they?!
