View Full Version : Character: Aragorn

07 July 2003, 11:29 PM
I'm sure you've already seen lots of other drawings of Aragorn and lotr characters, but i was bored and found nothing better do draw. I tried working using hard brushes, no smudging or blur tools.
For some reason i think the fire doesn't really fit with the rest of the piece.
Hope ya like it :)

(god, so many times I've edited this to get the image, heh)

The facial expression is great. That's Aragorn.
I think you should add more contrast on Aragorns face.
His skin, his hair, his clothes and his stick would reflect the fire a lot more, and creates darker shadows. That's one of the
reasons why the fire doesn't fit.
you should draw the left side of the picture with warmer colors
and the right side has to be darker I think.

Hope this helps

Keep the fire but improve the lighting/shadows...put a bit of specular glow in...the fire doesn't look probably needs more glow too.. Your best bet is to find some references for the lighting.

IMO the expression doesn't fit with the character or the scene. Maybe that's just me.
