Lord of The Rings: Gandalf the White by TayleRX Lord of The Rings: Gandalf the White by TayleRX
Hi there, it's been a while since I uploaded anything but today I decided to show you my newest piece that I did for my Lord of the Rings series - Gandalf the White. I have to admit that this piece was probably the hardest that I've done so far. When doing this drawing, I had no idea on how to do the beard so I had to improvise a little and make it look really messy. The white, long hair also was a challenge... and if it's not enough, Gandalf is an old dude so I had to make him look old :D But enough of me whining, I will tell you what tools I used to draw this guy since a lot of people ask what sorcery I use to draw my stuff, enjoy ^^

0.5 and 0.3 mechanical pencils
4B-6B pencils
Paper stumps and tortillions
Eraser

Excellent! Gandalf after his resurrection (after the fatal battle with the Balrog). The detail is stunning, showing fantastic technique. It's not only a fine rendition of Ian McKellen as Gandalf, but superb portraiture as well. An easy Fave.
