Utinni! A jawa is a rodent-like species of natives (alien to us - but native to the likes of Luke Skywalker), that resided on the planet Tatooine in the first Star Wars movie - the same place Luke grew up with his aunt and uncle.

They move about in huge sandcrawlers, arm themselves with ion blasters... and earn their living by scavenging and trading.

Let's draw one!


First Step - Framework for a Jawa

Drawing this creature, is actually pretty simple. Kind of like a grim reaper - it's cloak, as it drapes over most of its body... makes drawing one in whole - easier than you may think.

Here's how it looks...

Let's go!

Second Step - Draw!

Beginning with those eerie soon-to-be-glowing-and-yellow! eyes, go ahead and slowly bring the head of the creature into view - followed by the rest of its body. Looking at a reference image, there may be some other features you want to add. Do!
