Yay, MY very own, My preciouussssssss, little Gandalf, not protrayed as Ian, or whoever the actor was that played him. Gandalf is one of the ,ore fancinating characters created by J.R.R Tolkien and I decided i would draw him the way I Imagined him. Yes his beard is tied, well, what, it must get annoying after a while to have a long beard. He took me forever to think up but once I started rolling, there was no stopping me, and, to be honest, im quite proundof the way he turned out, mind you a lot of the shadowing disappeared when i scan him and no matter what i tried it wouldn't scan right. So here you have it, my image of Gandalf.

Oh wow! I knew it had to be Gandalf just from the thumbnail, Gandalf from the books of course. I love the lines of his hair and beard and your attention to detail with the tie around his beard too. A face full of personality 2

Woot! i like wizards... your style is great... you use carbon and smuging very efficiently and its obvious from your drawings you mastered shading pretty well. Keep it up!
