Here’s a look at a time-lapse video showing hyperrealistic speed painting of Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings.
The portrait was painted by Pol Art and posted on his Youtube page on August 10, 2014. Over 100 hours of work is compressed this one minute time-lapse. The painting was created using pastel chalk and a MDF art panel.
Pol Art seems to be the account belonging to a tattoo artist who describes himself on Twitter as: “Tattooist, painter, and graffiti artist, currently working in [Jerez de la Frontera,] Cadiz, Spain.”
Gandalf will return to the big screen on December 17, 2014 when the last in The Hobbit trilogy will be released nationwide. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies carries on from the “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy which was also written by J. R. R. Tolkien and directed by Peter Jackson.
Warner Bros. Pictures recently released the teaser trailer for the film at the San Diego Comic Con.
