I always wondered how old he was. He was an elderly man in The Lord of The Rings, and he is an elderly man in The Hobbit movies. Must be magic or something.

Wow, what an impressive amount of detail you've put in here! I have a little question, when you painted, did you activated the property of the brush, to not blend with the existing strokes and color? I mean, when you paint you choose if every trace remains like that or you can edit the mixing and dilution values to obtain a more painterly layout (if you paint all in one layer)

Thanks for reading, It's an impressive work.
