STEP 1. Draw a small circle for the elven archers head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw out the guidelines for the torso, hips, legs, arms, hands and bow. Oh, and his feet.   STEP 2. You will start sketching out the shape of the bow and make sure you draw it out nice and big. Next start drawing out the hair line for the elven archers hair and as you can see it is the same style as Legolas. Once that is complete you can draw out the face and then the eyes and ears. Draw the shape of his torso and then add the thickness of his belt. You will then draw out the skirt part of the elves clothes.   STEP 3. You will now draw out the arm shapes and then the eyes and hair in more detail. Draw the bow string witch is arched back or being pulled by his left hand, and then start sketching out the fingers as well.   STEP 4. Now that you are almost done with this lesson you will start sketching out the hair style strand lines as shown here and then sketch out all the detailing lines on his archer suit. Make sure you add enough creases and wrinkles to the shirt and sleeves.   STEP 5. Now you can start sketching out the rest of his clothes which includes the belt and all the notch holes. When sketching out the lower half of the elven archers clothing make sure that you make them look loose and baggy with plenty of crease, wrinkle and fold lines. Begin the lining of his cape and then move to the next step.   STEP 6. This is your last drawing step and all you have to do now is draw out the boots and feet of this elven archer that looks so much like Legolas from Lord of the Rings. Finish off the cape and then move to the next step. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one and move to the last step.   STEP 7. This is what your sketch should look like when you are done. Just color him in and you have either just learned how to an elven archer or you have learned how to draw Legolas from Lord of the Rings step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
