Draw Darth Maul
Ever wanted to draw Star Wars
characters and vehicles just like the professional comic book artists? Star Wars
illustrator Grant Gould explains with these easy-to-follow steps how to draw Darth Maul
. Steps 1-5 are drawn lightly with pencil. No pen, no dark lines. Finished lines and details will come at the end.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Drawing pencil
- Colored pencils
- Colored pens
Drawing lightly with a pencil, create a stick figure framework using basic shapes like circles and ovals to represent Maul's head, shoulders, elbows, knees, etc.
Use broad, simple strokes to give shape to his body and clothing. Use lines down the middle of his head to help show where his eyes and nose will go.
Now you can start to flesh him out a bit more. Add eyes, folds in his clothes, lightsaber shape, etc.
Focus on his head. Use simple lines to illustrate his mouth and nose, then give his horns some more detail.
The face tattoos are an important and fun part of drawing Darth Maul! Follow the markings shown in the example, and then add pupils to his eyes as well. Make sure he has a fierce, angry look.
At this point, you should have a fairly detailed pencil drawing of Darth Maul. Just give his gloved fists a bit more shape and then illustrate his lightsaber handle. Once you're happy with how your masterpiece looks, you can go over your lines with pen or marker, or heavier pencil lines.
You can color your drawing, too, if you prefer. It's completely up to you!
