Little is known of this man, and that is by design. Unmatched in his mental prowess he survives by illusion, misdirection, and guile.  He has the power to reach out with his mind and sunder the will of monsterous creatures, big and small, and twist their minds to his liking. He is accompanied in his travels by a human warrior, an elven bard, a dwarven Duskblade, a half-elf cleric of Torm, and a Drow Assassin. Lady Allustrial has sent them deep into the spine of the world to uncover a plot that will unite all the races of giant against the Silver Marches. No one knows his true name, or true motivation...

In my head I want to call him Mr. Anderson. Anyway....

He seems sorta washed-out for a pencil drawing, so I'm going to assume that you used the scan settings that lightened The Elven Chef so dramatically here as well, which may have overpowered some of the finer shading/details. Which may not be a bad thing, since this figure stands as is quite well!

The figure is done with your usual impeccable attention to detail. I can find but one flaw: the slightly "Ta-da!" way he's holding his wand out. But, honestly, I think it's kinda hard to draw a spellcaster of whatever flavor holding a wand - it always seems kinda prissy, no matter how good the piece otherwise. So that might just be my own lil' hang-up.
