Saruman the White

Saruman the White

I took a break between watching episodes of Community (which is one of the best pop culture goodies you still need to watch) and True Detective (which I only just now started, in hopes of catching up before the start of Season 2) and worked on this small piece for the @Sketch_Dailies theme of #Saruman in tribute to the recent passing of the great Christopher Lee.

It is actually the first time I have worked with white pens on texture like this before; Jodie found this extra paper somewhere for me and the pens only just recently arrived from a haul of new stuff I picked up on Amazon. I love the depth it adds to things, though I think in this final version his staff is a bit large and the shading isn't exactly kosher.

Beard
Jodie and I saw this guy walking down John Young yesterday, and I kid you not ... this is exactly what his beard and mustache combo looked like. It was big, fluffy, and so crazy long. It was also a misty white, with yellow/creme brown colored ends, but that is besides the point. I'm not at ...
