In this drawing guide, we will tell you how to draw Jango Fett from Star Wars. Like his son Bob, Jango became a cult character even though we could see him in minutes on the screen.
First we look at our drawing and note the basic features of the figure. It’s best to use a stickman for this action. We see a large head (due to a helmet) and short stature. Our character tilts her head slightly forward and because of this, growth seems even smaller. In general, the growth of our character in this perspective is equal to the sum of the lengths of 5.5 – 6 heads.
The chest is much wider than the pelvis. Hands form obtuse angles. The legs have the minimal bend in the knee joints.
We connect the chest and pelvis using two lines with smooth bends. We must get a torso that gradually tapers down. After that, we draw two intersecting lines on the head. The horizontal line of the eyes is located just above the center. This line has a smooth bend.
Let’s work with the contours of the arms. As in the previous tutorial about Boba Fett, here we do not see the raised muscles and physiological shape of the muscles. Because of the costume, our hero’s hands look like cylinders and large balls. The forearm has a slight narrowing downward. The fingers are represented by two cones that are located on different sides of the palm.
Great, let’s try to create volumetric silhouettes of the legs. The hips have a very smooth narrowing towards the knee joints that look like two large balls. The shin first slightly expands and then sharply tapers in the distal direction.
So we drew a rough silhouette of Jango Fett. Now we can draw the outline of the armor and helmet of our bounty hunter. We focus on the contours of the head and draw a helmet that expands down and forms an obtuse angle. On the shoulders and hips of Jango Fett, we outline the contours of light plates. On a lowered belt is a holster with a gun.
Draw a gap on the helmet. It has a T-shape. Please note that the horizontal edges of the helmet in this perspective have sharp curved ends. We connect the lower and horizontal ends using lateral smooth curved lines. Do not forget about the small antenna on the helmet.
In this step, we will depict the defense that is located on the body of Jango Fett. It looks like four plates between which there are gaps. In the place where all the plates meet, a small elongated hexagon is located.
The hardest part in this step is finger painting. We have a special lesson about this in fact. We also draw protection on the shoulders and forearms. On the elbow bends are the folds of tissue.
In the pelvic area we see a protective plate and a lowered belt on which a holster with weapons hangs on both sides. On the hips and legs are small elements of armor. Do not forget about important trifles such as folds on fabric and a hem of soles.
Let’s apply some light shadows. First, outline the contours of the areas you would like to shade. After that, we cover the areas we need with a light single-layer hatching. Avoid bright contrasting shadows because in this case your drawing will look like drawings in a comic style.
This is the final result of our tutorial on how to draw Jango Fett. We hope you get an even cooler picture.
It was a drawing guide on how to draw Jango Fett from Star Wars. This Christmas season, we have prepared a couple more lessons for those who love this famous space saga.
