As the galaxy's best recyclers, Jawas understand the true value of a discarded droid better than anyone. They comb the deserts of Tatooine in search of crap metal and abdandoned droids. Using their makeshift weaponry, they can shut down droids and drag them to their treaded homes on wheels known as sandcrawlers. Appearing as meter-tall humanoids they are completely hidden behind rough, handwoven robes. Their faces are hidden within the dark folds of a cowl, all execpt their glowing yellow eyes.

Star Wars illustrator Grant Gould explains with these easy-to-follow steps on how to draw a Jawa. Steps 1-5 are to be drawn lightly with a pencil. No pen, no dark lines. Finished lines and details will come at the end.
