Gandalf the White by TrollGirl Gandalf the White by TrollGirl
As a result of a conversation with :iconsiluan:, and also inspired by :iconcataclysm-x:
It's been a long while since i attempted realism with graphite, probably 7 years, glad to see it didn't come out too badly.
Ian McKellen is probably my favorite actor, in my view his power of performance is comparable to none.

Mechanical 0.5 pencil and 6B pencil. Also a cotton blender stick. Those things are pretty neat.

Love this work! Although it is not similar to the majority of your work I can still see your ´style´ in there, like a handwriting. Something I wish I had too. Did you draw it from screen or from a print or poster? Always curious, I am:-)

From screen. And i'm curious how can you see a style here. It's realism after all, and inexperienced people all do the same slightly flawed realism.
