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.
Among an endless variety of bounty hunters plotting and scheming throughout the galaxy, Greedo is one of the most interesting to draw. With his large, bulbous eyes, pointy ears and scaly skin, his appearance is a combination of alien and reptile.
Star Wars illustrator Cynthia Cummens explains with these easy-to-follow steps on how to draw a side view of Greedo's face. For this lesson, try using a soft lead pencil, such as a 2B. This exercise uses pencil, ink and colored pencil, so it's a bit of an exploration with mixed media. Have fun with it and if you're nervous about color, just stick with pencil and marker!
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.
