Artwork Description

I know it is a little cliche to draw Gandalf, but I've been reading the Trilogy again, and have been inspired to illustrate. And besides, I've never drawn Gandalf before! Pencil original, colored digitally.

good light-shadow contrast. Gandalf is great! I like it.

I already said how much I like this. The lighting looks great. The larger version is even better than the smaller one, because I can see more detail. Smile

Hey Marie! I'm really happy your Gandalf got accepted. Smile I agree with what Erika said. It's true that the LotR movies have given a "commercial" side to the trilogy because of the massive advertising campaign, merchandising and so on... But putting this aside, LotR remains and will always be a masterpiece of fantasy litterature. Tolkien is a genius. Smile

Fantastic! I especially love his expression.

Thanks! I tried to go as much by the description of his features in the book as I could.

Yay! It got in. Congratz. I don't think it is cliche to draw Gandalf. It's an unfortunate side effect of the films if people start to think of Gandalf as cliche. Any way enough ranting. Great pick. Smile

Art at its best.
