Saruman by The-Black-Panther Saruman by The-Black-Panther
A few days ago while I was looking for Grima related fanart I came across this awesome piece made by :icontrzecipromien:, which is in my humble opinion one of the best drawings of him posted on dA. I liked the style so much that I decided to try it myself. My choice was Saruman the White (or rather the blue here ;p). A photo of Christopher Lee was of course my reference but I altered his features a bit to add a touch of my version of Saruman.

Quite true :) I liked his Rochefort in The Three Musketeers and Mycroft Holmes in The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes although he didn't match the phisical description.

Haven't seen this one. I like also his Dracula, although in those movies it's Peter Cushing's Van Helsing who steals the show. :)

O, lineless art O.o Wyszło niesamowicie, twarz daje złudzenie realizmu, świetnie sobie poradziłaś z umieszczeniem cieni. Jestem pod wrażeniem *.*

Dzięki :) Trochę sobie pomogłam, bo zwiększyłam kontrast na zdjęciu, żeby było łatwiej wyodrębnić poszczególne kolory.

Very well done. You can see the calculation in his gaze.

The-Black-Panther Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
Thanks :) Now I started to wonder if Saruman always was like that: cold, calculating, more attached to machines and mechanizms than living things. After the desire for knowledge made him to study the Rings of power and eventually to look into palantir. I wonder if he would live long enough after Sauron's defeat he would realize his mistakes eventually. Or perhaps he did but was too proud to admit it and ask for forgiveness and mercy.

Ale spokojna głowa, w nowych Nazgulach też się pojawi i tym razem to nie on będzie miał kłopoty ;)

Saruman, moja ulubiona postać we Władcy :D Też byłem niesamowicie szczęśliwy, jak go zobaczyłem w Hobbicie. Wiedziałem naturalnie, że gra - ale myślałem że ukaże się dopiero w kolejnych częściach... :)

Podobno w drugiej i trzeciej też ma być - w każdym razie Christopher Lee jest w spisie aktorów. Mam nadzieję, że PJowi nie przyszło do głowy zrobić z niego złego już na tym etapie... Do myślenia daje mi ta scena w której Gandalf na spotkaniu Białej Rady niby się cieszy na jego widok, ale tak zaraz jakby się wycofuje... No, ale może po prostu obawiał się, że Saruman będzie miał do niego pretensję za zbytnią samowolę.

Gdzieś zasłyszałem opinię (a może to wywiad był?) że pan Lee ma zagrać corruptowanie przez Saurona - czyli jak to krok po kroku coraz bardziej przechodził na stronę zuych :)
Reply
:iconthe-black-panther:
The-Black-Panther Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
O, ciekawe. Tylko to wymagałoby jego większego udziału w filmie, a nie wiem czy Lee da radę ze względu na zaawansowany wiek. Niemniej byłby to ciekawy wątek, chociaż nieco przesunięty w czasie.

Mam nadzieję że da radę, zresztą znając sytuację wydaje mi się, że Jackson kawałki Sarumanowe już nakręcił, tak just in case ;)

Mnie tez to nie zachwycilo, no ale z drugiej strony samo obsadzenie Christophera Lee od razu sugeruje, w którą stronę pójdzie ta postać...

The-Black-Panther Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
Mhm... no, nieznający książki mogliby się na tym oprzeć ;) Mnie chodzi o "Hobbita". w tych latach Saruman jeszcze nie był zły, odbiło mu dopiero gdy zajrzał w palantir koło 3000 r. T.E. Na potrzeby filmu faktycznie mogą przesunąć jego przejście na ciemną stronę na trochę wcześniejszy okrs.

"My choice was Saruman the White (or rather the blue here )." I don't know why, but for some reason I just laughed my ass off at that sentence! X) Nah but really, nice work on this c:

Wonder if he would like blue ;) He called himself Saruman of Many Colours after all. Btw. I'm so glad they PJ didn't make in the movie Saruman The Rainbow and he was just Saruman the White (though his robes were so amazingly done that seemed to have various shades of silver next to white). Saruman in red dressing-gown in Bakshi's movie was enough of shocking sight...

Eek, Bakshi's Saruman! He's all wrong. His voice is squeaky, too.

I wonder why they made Saruman the White in red robes... Perhaps it was his housecoat - Gandalf just took him by surprise, coming so sudden, without announcing himself earlier ;)
