I simply represented the image in front of me. I'm really glad that expresses the emotions of the photo, it means that it is really resembling the character! ;)

thanks!!!

you are kind!
Gandalf always has a happy expression and kind, and Sir Ian has a really beautiful face, suitable for a character so good.
I'm glad you like it! ;)

Great work. Do you use a grid when sketching out the basics? I know other artists use a grid system. Great artwork, I really enjoy it.

thank you very much!
I am very happy you like it ;)
I am a beginner and design only as a hobby then I invent the techniques of drawing and I use a different one for each drawing I do.
I always try to improve myself using new techniques but no one has ever taught me. for this one in particular I did not use a grid but I did the basic features with a 2h and then I finished drawing.
is an unusual way but unfortunately I lack the basics that have the true artists :)

Grazie mille!
è un lavoro lungo da fare ma quando disegno il tempo vola, figurati che tutto tranne la barba è stato fatto in un unica sessione di disegno e la cosa non è stata affatto pesante xD
domani spero di postare Sauron, quello l'ho dovuto fare in diverse sessioni, quello è stato davvero pesante ;)

Ma sei fortunato :) A me piace disegnare, ma se non posso disegnare quello che imaggino nel foglio, mi arrabbio e smetto... così non posso mai migliorare :facepalm: Vorrei essere come te, haha. Cercherò di vedere il tuo Sauron :)
