- ARAGORN for the Official XBOX magazine
The Aragorn cover was the last of the three paintings to be
completed. I saved this one for last because I figured he would
need the most work and care to look correct. In the Return
of the King movie, Aragorn is no longer the scruffy Ranger that we all know
and love. He now has a discernable hairstyle and a brand new set of
spiffy Gondorian King's Armor. Everything about him is different--even
the sword has changed! I had only one or two photos to go from,
so I really had my work cut out for me. The initial final had Aragorn
looking a little too pretty--too romance novel-like. So, I went back
in and did my best to muss him up a bit.
