Gandalf is a powerful wizard who wore a long grey cloak, a tall pointed grey hat, and a silver scarf; and a member of the Istari – a group of Wizards of Middle-earth. He is initially known as Gandalf the Grey, later on as Gandalf the White when he returns from death, but also known as Olórin, Tharkun, Greyhame, Stormcrow, The Grey Pilgrim and Mithrandir. He appears on both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings film series.

The story of Hobbits begin when Gandalf arranged a meeting between a band of 13 dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield and the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins when he foreseen the coming war with Sauron. Their quest is to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug the Dragon. It’s known as the “The Quest of Erebor” – a book written by Frodo Baggins though most of the text is consist of narration by Gandalf.

Gandalf is one of the members and the leader of the fellowship of the ring – a group formed in the secret Council of Elrond. Gandalf took leadership of the Fellowship, leading the group south after leaving Rivendell. During this whole journey, one of my favorite scenes is when Gandalf faces a Balrog of Morgoth – a demonic creature described as tall and menacing with the ability to shroud themselves in fire, darkness, and shadow.

Here’s a powerful collection of Gandalf artwork illustrations and designs depicting the character of the wise wizard in LOTR and The Hobbit.
