Looks wonderful! The contrast is great!

It shouldn't surprise me, but it feels funny to see someone drawing from the exact same reference as I did :) www.deviantart.com/lelyawen/ar…

As a big fan of the franchise, this is hands down one of the best portraits I have seen of Gandalf. One can almost imagine him saying "Fly, you fools!"

You've captured the character well - the poor fellow looks terrified! It is so often forgotten that while Gandalf is thought of as the solid class act and supernatural muscle of the fellowship, he is also scared out of his mind of Sauron. Indeed this is the main reason he was selected as one of the istari; none of the others fully understood the threat.

Well done.
