Looks like John Hurt more than Ian McKellan.

That's not a bad thing, though. I would love to have seen John Hurt as Gandalf. (Not that Sir Ian McKellan didn't do a fantastic job).

At a quick glance it looks more like Michael Gambon's Dumbledore.

If the Tolkien's books were to be republished with new covers, this work of art would fit well for the job! Wonderful!

Well sometimes I look at drawings on devianart and say to myself "they are so good they probably had thousands of comments" but there aren't actually. In this community there are thousands of talented people amd we are normalizing your talents. But it is not normal. Every one of those artist are gifted and you are one of them. We need to appreciate your art because it is beautiful. It is just marvelous how you all those details by just a brush. I just respect you. And don't forget that you are so not normal ;) <3 ^-^
