How to Draw a Stormtrooper
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw a Stormtrooper from Star Wars. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start with a big oval with somewhat flat ends in the middle of the page. This will be the basic shape for the Stormtrooper’s head.
Step 2: Next, draw a vertical line in the center of the oval followed by two horizontal lines. One of the horizontal lines will curve up slightly and be near the top of the oval. The other will be closer to the bottom and will curve down quite a bit, like a hill. These will be construction lines that will help you place the Stormtrooper’s features later on.
Step 3: Now draw two angled curves right below the top horizontal construction line for the Stormtrooper's eyes. The end result looks like two right triangles. Draw a curve on top of the bottom horizontal line for the mouthpiece.
Step 4: Draw three ovals at the bottom of the main oval that will help as guides later on. The circle in the middle should be bigger and should be intersected in half by the vertical construction line. Draw the other two on either side, and make them smaller and wider than the middle circle.
Step 5: That’s it for the initial sketch! You have the basic Stormtrooper shape, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
