STEP ONE

Drawing lightly with a pencil, create a framework using basic shapes like circles and ovals. The key is to start simple and flesh it out as you go.

STEP TWO

Draw the head, chest and shoulders of Anakin. Very lightly with your pencil, create the body and armor outlines over your framework.

STEP THREE

Draw Anakin's hair, eyebrows, nose, and mouth. And don't be afraid to erase and redraw lines if need be. Practice makes perfect!

STEP FOUR

Now that you have the framework down and all of Anakin's major facial features, you can start adding more details such as the lines in his hair, the scar on his face, shading on his nose, the indents on his armor, etc. It can be helpful to use images from The Clone Wars as a reference too.

STEP FIVE

Go over your final lines with a pen or marker. Once your ink lines are dry, erase the pencil lines. Or use heavier pencil lines over the lighter ones.

STEP SIX

However you decide to finish your drawing is completely up to you!
