  • JJ - Radagast (the Druid)


    In order to thank a Friend, I set about making a bas-relief depicting a Druid, a man of the woods, a forest wizard ...... in fact, I do not know what name to give him, but his husband when I told him presented my future project told me ..... it's Radagast....and as in the mind it is what pleases her sweet, so it will be Radagast. I searched the pages of the net to find an idea that I could judge suitable to my wishes, I approached all that is cinematographic representation close to the character, then Druids, etc .......and I finally found a drawing on which I immediately hung. I had to look for the origin of this drawing to ask permission from its author (even if the image circulates freely on the net) but I only managed to discover his name without being able to reach him in any way, I hope that my work will suit him and give him satisfaction. He would be named: Guillermo Gonzalez, talented draftsman and could be Mexican (I'm sure of nothing actually) , I thank him in advance ...

                Thank you Joepaulbutler, woodburner, Nebraska and Rontana.

                Nebraska you did not understand I think, I know these pages and this figurine....but I did not find how to join Guillermo Gonzalez (the drawing).

                  good so that things are not too simple (... I'm kidding) I add some difficulties to the original drawing.

                      You had to add difficulty to this???! Good grief man, you ARE a gluten for punishment. I shall follow with great interest.
