STEP ONE

Drawing lightly with a pencil, create a simple framework.

STEP TWO

Using the framework as a guide, you can now draw the basic shapes of Obi-Wan's body. Start with his tunic, neck and shoulders and work your way out from there.

STEP THREE

Sketch in some more clothing details.

STEP FOUR

This is a good time to give his hand some more detail and to illustrate his lightsaber. When drawing the "blade" of the lightsaber, be sure to use a ruler so that your lines are nice and straight.

STEP FIVE

Now you can focus on Obi-Wan's head. Take note of the angular shapes of his beard, the flow of his hair, and the placement of his eyes. When you draw a person from a front view, their eyes should always be about halfway down their head.

STEP SIX

At this point, you should have a fairly detailed pencil drawing of Obi-Wan Kenobi. If you see any mistakes, feel free to erase your pencil lines and try again. Practice makes perfect! Once you're happy with how your masterpiece looks, you can go over your lines with pen, marker, or heavier pencil lines.

STEP SEVEN

You can color your drawing, too, if you prefer. It's completely up to you!
