FULL VIEW PLEASE Gandalf The Grey
All we have to decide, is what to do with the time that is given to us...." - Gandalf
I think its one of the best quotes from Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings,
Maybe even one of the best quotes ever.
This deviation is entirely done with drawing pencils!
Here you can find a video where you can see me working on this drawing, I hope the video will help people with drawing beards: >> [link] <<
Also Jack Sparrow has a role in this video
I started this drawing on October 2007
when I was 17 years old. I finished this drawing in July 2009
, now Im 19. < Its a shame lol, I know
I really want to apologize to my good friend here on DA that it took so long.
This drawing is for =InsaneKane87
! Check out his amazing gallery.
This was actually the first time I drew a beard like this
and god.. it was a hell!
Im really glad its finally finished. And Im really proud on this drawing. My father told me that he saw life in this drawing. The eyes of Gandalf. It was like he just wanted to come out of the paper, he said.
The quality of the scan is not as good as my other drawings. That's becauze I killed my good scanner today, so I had to use our other scanner.
Sauron: I see you
Jack: How is that? The man is hiding himself behind his beard.
Gandalf: No Im not!
Jack: Yes you are!
Gandalf: Wanna see some fireworks in front of your face ?!
Gimli: I smell pirates!
Legolas: I smell a dwarf
Thanks for looking
Love you all Work in Progress:
