Wow. This is amazing. I love his hands, and the expression on his face is perfect(ly evil).

He looks so mystically evil! I was so disappointed when they cut out his big scene in the movie! Great piece! :)

My word, this is AMAZING! How long did this take you?

Thanks so much! Hrm - My guess is the pencil work was about an hour and a half and the digital work was about 45 minutes. I'd like to clean this one up more and make it more "finished"...alas...no time these days...

This piece is so fitting for Saruman's character, full of evil.. and madness... I really like how you did his hands too. They really stand out in contrast to the Palantir.

Awesome job!

Thank you very much! This was always how I saw Saruman when reading the books long ago. I would like to revisit this piece and re-colour it now that I know what I'm doing :)

I was really just figuring out my pencil to digital colours process with this one. I might recolour it later now that I know a bit more about what I'm doing.
