Gandalf the Grey - Figures of Middle Earth by MattDeMino Gandalf the Grey - Figures of Middle Earth by MattDeMino
Gandalf the Grey, Mithrandir, and later known as Gandalf the White is the wisest of the Maiar. For over 2,000 years, the Grey wizard worked most faithfully against the rising powers of evil in Middle-earth.

Gandalf one of the most iconic wizards of all time, and one of my very favorite characters of all time.

First Submission of 2013! This is the first in what I hope to be a long series of paintings, stay tuned for more legendary figures from J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth!

Incredibly detailed work and an instant fave. I love the use of light, the painstaking effort put into the striations on his robe, and the fact that you've built out an emotion behind this instead of just another portrait shot. Really well done.
