Gandalf the Wet

Meet Gandalf the Wet.
It's my first sketch in my very first Moleskine sketchbook. It's a christmas gift from my amazing friend. I always wanted one, but could not afford it.
I suffer from several genetic diseases & my treatment is really costly, so I can't spend much money on pleasures. I am really touched.

I also used fabercastell watercolours I got from my other fantastic friend :iconcarbono14:

Best Gandalf I've seen in a long time. Would have made the Hobbit movie a lot better..

It's a shame when medical costs get in the way of life-enriching pursuits. We're lucky to benefit from your friend's gift: you get to make great art, and we get to view it.

Thank you so much, I'm glad beyond words you think so.

Indeed, it's quite a complex part of one's life. Having a friend around in such times is even more precious.
Even more, when he supports the field you desire to pursue.

I've visited your profile & seen the series of your artistic nudes. They are wonderful, in a way of describing your emotions triggered with your health issues.
Dealing with chronic - and also erythematosus - diseases myself, I think I can quite relate to such feelings - without useless preaching.
All the best to you & lots of hope, luck and persistence on your way to survive.

(I apologize for the extremely late reply, and also my English. I'm not a native speaker.)

Haven't seen a redraw of that famous photograph in a while. Love the title and the detail on the fur. Great job!

I saw the picture and clicked on it, expecting the title to be like Harry Otter or something but this did not dissapoint. Great work!
