Gandalf the Grey by Gold-Seven Gandalf the Grey by Gold-Seven
This one was painted back in October, as a commission for a Christmas present for the client's brother - so I can only share it now :) 

Painted with Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolours on Canson Montval paper, A3 size. 

See the walkthrough here: goldseven.wordpress.com/2013/1…

Or on tumblr: goldseven.tumblr.com/


The commissioner gave me one of the most awesome surprises when he filmed his brother's reaction upon unwrapping this one. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksbgud… His account can be found on dA: *The-Wizard-of-Art

Lastly, thank you for not discussing the "Hobbit" movie(s)! :3

This is a beautiful image!  I hope you don't mind, but I shared your Youtube link on The Tolkien Society facebook page, as it made me happy.

Very nice!  It's so nice to see Gandalf not looking like Ian McKellan .....  Hug

I love Ian McKellen as Gandalf, and it's okay if it shows - but this is still my Gandalf. :)

 A fine rendition of Mithrandir and I particularly admire those eyebrows - you just can't draw a good Gandalf if you neglect to give him eyebrows that could out-fuzz a caterpillar!

Ich hab mich schon gewundert, wo er bleibt ;-)
Mir gefällt an diesem Bild, wie er trotz seiner entspannten Haltung skeptisch und wachsam in die Welt blickt.

Awesome work! Well, all your work is awesome, which is why I've been watching you for the past half decade, but I really think you captured Gandalf's essence well. :D
