Lead Through the Darkness by JakeMurray Lead Through the Darkness by JakeMurray
A new LOTR card of mine was spoiled today on the Fantasy Flight Games site, so I can finally show it off! Finished this one back around last September or October I think. It's one of the VERY few attempts I've made at doing a card commission in traditional paint and it was definitely a lot of fun to work on (I mean, it's Gandalf for crying out loud!), but I definitely don't have as much confidence painting quickly (and accurately) in oils as I would like. Maybe one day.

9" x 10.5" oil on illustration board. Fantasy Flight Games

Original painting is now for sale! Check out my web store for purchase information!

Looks gorgeous! I'm reading the Hobbit right now in preparation for the movies coming out. I know, it's a travesty I never read it before now. It's so good.

It's okay. I read it back in the seventh grade, but I don't even really think I was paying attention that much (same with the Lord of the Rings). Had to re-read it last year. Thanks for commenting! :)

How could you not love this bodacious Gandalf? Love the lighting and overall vibe, great work! Do you get to keep the original?

Thanks! Oils do take plenty of practice (of which I think I could still use plenty more of)! :D

Nicely done. In my experience though, the words "quickly" and "oils" simply don't fit together in the same sentence haha.

Haha very true. Though I have seen some pretty wicked-awesome stuff happen in oils in like an hour (not by me, of course). Thanks for the comment! :)
