Well this is probably, no joke, my favorite rendition of Gandalf. Just such a beautifully old and ornery rendition in the best of ways. The smoke's a brilliant touch too.
Your work is pretty much the only reason I ever even visit this site anymore. Hell, I may not post anymore but to this day I utilize the drawing techniques you showed me so many years ago. So thanks for that; and keep being ridiculously inspiring would ya?
