Gandalf Samurai sumi style by MyCKs Gandalf Samurai sumi style by MyCKs
haha. so I knew this was coming. 
Gandalf from Lord of the Rings Samurai style. 
Seriously it's probably hard to tell the difference from his original self. 
Waiting on the calligraphy for this one still ^^ My mom is busy these days..

There are no words how awesome Japanese Gandalf looks here. 
Hat, robe, sword, pipe..everything fits perfectly.

soo cool your art...

Maybe, if you have time, draw Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin in your style

Maybe because it's hard :) Even Gandalf in samouraļ, it's not easy

Yeah I agree with your point about his orignal self because you've captured the essence of the character. Once again really cool!

Your art is awesome. I love all the sumi-e style with these characters from video games and movies. It's such a great interpretation of their characters. Definitely really neat art. :D
