This is the finest depiction of Gandalf that I've encountered. There is a tangible warmth of character and humanity in his expression. I perceive something new and intriguing each time I view it. Exceptional craftsmanship.
Excellent. Terrific execution and great pose. My only comment would be to give him just a subtle eye-light on his right (our left) eye so that there is just a faint hit of contrast. That eye roughly lines up with the upper left third, and it would hit really nice with the composition if it had a little detail there. Just an idea! Absolutely elegant and masterful brushwork! I love the pallet for the beard. I really struggle with varied pallets, so I greatly admire your skill!
