illustrator Grant Gould explains with these easy-to-follow steps how to draw Clone Captain Rex
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 basic shapes like circles, lines and triangles.
Using your framework as a guide, you can now start to flesh out the shapes of Rex's legs, arms, shoulder plates, belt, etc.
Continue to develop the shapes and outlines of his outfit and equipment, including the holsters hanging at his sides.
Create the outline of his helmet and take this time to carefully illustrate his visor and other head details.
Now you can focus on the stripes and markings on Rex's armor and helmet.
At this point, you should have a fairly detailed pencil drawing of Captain Rex. 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!
