Nice job! If this isn't intended to be Gandalf the two blue wizards that went into the East and were never heard from again were Alatar and Pallando in the Maia tongue, and Morinehtar and Romestamo respectively in Middle-Earth.
I really love the your art style. The color choice ist wonderful, and the lines beautifully done. It's a shame that the Tolkien estate is so assbackwards when it comes to copyright. Makes me really curious about what and who you've chosen as the centerpiece for the rest of the cards. I hope to see more of your work popping up on my feed. (Strangely, the choice of Gandalf the Grey makes me wonder about your reasoning, because Gandalf - whether whitewashed oder muddied-grey - is not exactly a hermit and likes to meddle in the wordly affairs. If anyone, I would have thought Tom Bombadil embodies the spirit of the Hermit better, or if going with existing movie characters, Bilbo, when he goes to Imladris to live out his life. But everyone is free to their stylistic interpretation, and yours is stunning.)
Hi! I got this by some adds of a design page in facebook, and it's completely amazing!!! And I thought of commenting this because I thought other version of the hermit could be Treebeard, he's so cool *I love the ents more than anything, I always crave for anything Tolkien wrote of the Treewifes too... their story is so sad*
And, I'm totally following you because of this, is so amazing! Congrats!
