How to Draw the Eye of Sauron

Artist: Dawn / August 4, 2013

Step 1.

Begin by making an egg shape then draw the sides for the tower that the eye rests upon or atop.

Step 2.

Using the guide you just made for the eye, begin sketching out the flaming ring that surrounds the entire area of the eyeball.

Step 3.

Draw in the fork or claw like tip of the tower like so, and make sure that each tip is pointed.

Step 4.

Here you will draw in the markings lines on both sides of the tower wall, then sketch in the definition horizontal lining that flow up and down the shafts.

Step 5.

Add flaming detailing inside the eye, then draw in the black slit in the center of the eye. Make sure to color in the slit. There is little guide shapes and lines to erase, but whatever ones are visible be sure to erase them.

Step 6.

Here is the finished line art for the Eye of Sauron. Color in the sketch and add this drawing to your Lord of the Rings sketch portfolio.

Description: I finally got around to making a lesson on one of the main antagonist of The Lord of the Rings. Here is a simple lesson on "how to draw the Eye of Sauron", step by step. I guess the best way to describe the Eye is to really say it is the root of all evil. All the orcs have Sauron's eye on their helmets and shields. The tower that the flaming eyeball sits on is one of the dreariest towers I have ever seen. Describing Sauron's eye is like trying to decode a message. All I can tell you is that the eye itself is surrounded by fire but has it's own glare. The cat like pupil has a blackened center which is said to be the void of emptiness. At one point I think Sam and Frodo actually gazed upon the eye in person instead of in a vison. I know Frodo used to have visions of the Eye quite often and whenever he put the ring on, the Eye was able to home in on his whereabouts. Anyways, drawing the Eye of Souron will be easier than you think so don't shy away from this tutorial. Have fun, show off your work, and keep those requests coming in. Adios mi amigos.
