Drawing a Clone Trooper

October 18, 2005

Ever wanted to draw Star Wars characters and vehicles just like the professional comic book artists? In this step-by-step series, Star Wars artists and illustrators show you how to draw some of the most beloved characters in the saga, as well as new faces and creatures from Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith (available on DVD Nov. 1). So get your pencils and paper ready!

The Republic clone trooper represents the future of galactic warfare. Being far more advanced than the battle droid armies. As discovered in Attack of the Clones, the clones were grown from genetic material taken from an extremely skilled bounty hunter named Jango Fett in the cloning facilities of Tipoca City, on Kamino. Growth acceleration was key to the clones' development as they were constantly trained in fighting techniques, piloting skills and battlefield tactics. Clone troopers wore hard white armor, their identical faces concealed behind a t-shaped visor. In the first units, color-coded armor showed rank, with green troopers being sergeants, blue being lieutenants, red being captains, and yellow being commanders. By the end of the war, color-designation came to signify not rank, but individual units, who often became more customized with mission specific gear and armor modifications such as the Galactic Marines, the Shock Troopers, the Attack Battalion and the Star Corps. (As you draw your own clone troopers, you can decide what their color scheme will be.)

During the Clone Wars, the clones fought alongside the Jedi Masters who led them into battle, creating a lifelong bond that only soldiers understand. But in Revenge of the Sith, fans see clone troopers at their deadliest, following Order 66 given by the Emperor to exterminate all Jedi from the Jedi Temple and various battlegrounds on planets scattered throughout the galaxy.

Star Wars webstrip illustrator Tom Hodges explains his super-easy steps on how to draw your very own clone trooper.

Steps 1-7 are to be drawn lightly with a pencil. No pen, no dark lines. Finished lines and details will come at the end.
