How to Draw Aragorn, Viggo Mortensen, Lord of the Rings

Step 1.

Let us begin by making the outlined shape of Aragorn's head. Sketch in the facial guidelines then proceed to step two.

Step 2.

Aragorn has a very chiseled face because he is played by Viggo Mortensen. You will sketch out the actual structure of Aragorn's face like so, then begin sketching the bangs for his hair.

Step 3.

Now that the face shape is drawn in, we will tackle the task of sketching out the shapes of his intense eyes. Start with the very broad lining of the upper lid. This lining should be very dark and bold as it also forms some of the nose bridge. Once that is done you can draw in the eyes, then sketch the eyebrows very lightly until they are full.

Step 4.

All you have to do here is first sketch out the shape of Aragorn's nose, then sketch in the face or mouth. Add detailing to his cheeks, then add a dimple on the chin as well as under his lip. Once that is done, lightly sketch in his full beard but don't make it too dark where you can't see his cheek dents of chin dimple.

Step 5.

Almost done. As you know Aragorn has long straight shaggy hair. You will begin the drawing process to the left side of the picture to get his hair sketched out. Make sure that it smooths out at the bottom because that is actually going to be the lining for his shoulder.

Step 6.

Lastly, draw the hair on the right side of the picture's head like so, then sketch in the shape of his neck, collar line, and material for his thick cloak that he wears over his body. Add detailing to his hair where needed, then erase the mistakes as well as guidelines.

Step 7.

Here is Aragorn from Lord of The Rings. Now you can color him in to perfection.

I don't know why, but I never made a tutorial on "how to draw Aragorn" from Lord of The Rings. How could I have overlooked making a lesson on one of the main figures from the movie saga? Today this submission is all about Aragorn and how you can draw him in an easy to follow manner. I still remember when I was obsessed with LOTR. I wanted so bad to go see the first film in the movie theater because I knew it was going to be an epic movie. I know there are plenty of LOTR lovers here which means this lesson on drawing Aragorn is going to be special and exciting. Aragorn I tried capturing Aragorn's subtle conflict with himself as well as his inner heroism. He is the son of a great king, as well as a great king himself. I loved all the movies, and I love this lesson too. Have fun people and please remember to comment, rate and fav the tuts you come across today, and everyday. Adios my fellow Lord of the Rings fans and lovers.
