How to Draw Star Wars Characters

Welcome to the ‘how to draw Star Wars’ area of the site.

Star Wars has always played some part in my life.

Toys when I was younger, and movies that I continue to watch to this day…

Star Wars is just AWESOME.

And yes – it only makes sense…

If you love Star Wars – and you love to draw… then of course — draw Star Wars! That’s exactly what we’re going to do here.

The Star Wars universe is a vast one, with many different races, g2ships, planets, etc. So yes – there are literally tons of things we could tackle here in the form of drawing lessons.

For now, I’m going to keep this area a ‘character-oriented‘ place with lessons geared around more of the popular people, aliens and creatures. Ah… OK – and a lightsaber lesson too!

Something else to note, similar to the Superhero section here on the site, each character in Star Wars has something special about them that separates them from others.

When it comes to drawing, it’s important to be able to recognize and incorporate such features in the cartoons we create here.

This way, we’ll be able to come up with characters that look the way they’re ‘supposed to’.

Not necessarily perfect as they might look in the movies, but more of a homage to the particular character we’re drawing.

Well, I don’t know about you – but I’m just about ready to get to it.

Sound good?

Take a look at the drawing lessons below – select one – and… I know it’s both cheesy and expected… but yes – may the force be with you! 🙂
