How to Draw Samwise, Samwise Gamgee, Lord of the Rings

Step 1.


Samwise should be simple. All you need to start with is a circle for the head, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.


Define the shape of Sam's face. He should have a round chubby type of face. Sketch in the hairline which sort of frames his face as well. The bangs should be separated and loose. They should also hang as low as his eyebrows but you won't be drawing S   

Step 3.


Samwise has a bushy, wavy hairstyle. Sketch in the shape of his bowl cut, then add the wavy lines to add texture and detail to his hair.

Step 4.


Next, draw in the eyebrows, then sketch out the shapes of his eyes. Sam has kind eyes so make sure not to draw them in too creepy. The eyebrows should also look like hair instead of a solid piece. Add detailing under the eyes, then proceed to step fi   

Step 5.


You will work on Sam's nose next. As you can see he has a small but wide shaped nose. Draw in his subtle smile, then draw the round shape of his chin and chin ball. Add the lines for the top and bottom lip, then add definition to his cheek.

Step 6.


For the last step all you have to do is sketch out his shoulders, as well as the cloth or material from his cloak that he wears. Of course the hood is down, but when there is bad weather it's up. Erase the mistakes as well as the guidelines.

Step 7.


Here is Samwise Gamgee when you are all done. How can you be mad at a face like that. Color him in, or leave this Lord of the Rings character as a sketch.

Description: I'm sure you Lord of The Rings fans know who this face is. It is Frodo's right hand man Samwise and you are about to get schooled on "how to draw Samwise Gamgee", step by step. This face always makes me laugh whenever I see it. His innocence is strong, and even though Sam is considered to be a little on the dim side, he knew right away that Gollum was only after one thing and one thing only, the ring. What I liked about Samwise's character is how loyal and devoted to Frodo he was. Frodo and Sam where the closest of friends, and if they lived in our day they would've been considered BFFs. Drawing Samwise should be a breeze. I will be back soon with more fun for you all so stay tuned in. Adios amigos!
