This is stunning, and EXACTLY what I was looking for. Went looking for Aragorn images for inspiration, with the thought in my mind: “Aragorn, but no the REAL Aragorn, the way I KNOW he looks” and I stopped here. SO beautifully done! About 12 years late but I’m glad I found this, thanks for sharing!
This is the Aragorn I imagine in the book. When I first read TLOTR, though not explicitly stated, the hobbits saw that Aragorn and Boromir were sometimes indistinguishable from the Elves, meaning they were beardless. The prince of Dol Amroth, related to the people of Gondor, could be mistaken as en Elf for his fair looks and probably the beardless face. Frodo saw that Aragorn and Boromir were alike in their manner of speech and appearance. Beautiful. It really captures the essence of Aragorn in the book.
