Used a reference from an Empire magazine.
a selection of pencils and erasers used.
Took 9 hours spread over 4-5 days?
This really tested my limits etc., I usually draw young women with perfect skin and hair and such(but Gandalf is just as fabulous), so I had to do so much detail on this. I got quite weary near the end, so the sleeve and clothing is a bit rushed. I loved doing the sword! That hair....frustrating times ten.
I'm working on your bilboxthorin thing
