illustrator Grant Gould explains with these easy-to-follow steps how to draw Obi-Wan Kenobi
on The Clone Wars
. 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 simple framework.
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.
Sketch in some more clothing details.
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.
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.
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.
You can color your drawing, too, if you prefer. It's completely up to you!
