Ever wanted to draw Star Wars characters and vehicles just like the professional comic book artists? In this step-by-step series, Star Wars artists and illustrators show you how to draw some of the most beloved characters in the saga.
Star Wars illustrator Katie Cook explains with these easy-to-follow steps on how to draw one of Wat Tambor from The Clone Wars animated TV series.
Lightly sketch out a basic cone shape with a pencil like the drawing shown. Don't forget the little "flaps" on the side! Those will be this technocrat's arms.
Now we're going to draw in a little bit more detail, just shaping up our sketch by adding circles for the eyes and filling in his arms and costume.
From those simple lines, we can fill in the rest of the detail. Now you can draw things in a little harder with the pencil to "firm up" your drawing. Wat's outfit is fun to draw, so have fun with it!
Go over your pencil drawing with a black pen. I used a Micron Pigma Pen, but you can use a think black marker or any kind of black pen you happen to have in your art arsenal.
Carefully erase your pencil lines when your ink lines have dried.
Now you can color your drawing. I used markers to color mine, but you can use crayons or colored pencils too.
