Drawing Bounty Hunter Rumi Paramita

Drawing Bounty Hunter Rumi Paramita

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.

Star Wars illustrator Jessica Hickman explains with these easy-to-follow steps how to draw bounty hunter Rumi Paramita from Season 2 of The Clone Wars.

Steps 1-4 are drawn lightly with a pencil. No pen, no dark lines. Finished lines and details will come at the end.

Step One:

First draw a quick circle so you know where to put Rumi’s head. Keep your pencil lines nice and loose so you can easily erase any mistakes.

Step Two:

Next start with simple circles and triangles for construction lines on her face. Make a triangle for her pointed head and draw a little circle for her nose.

Step Three:

Add a little more detail around her eyes and mouth. Erase your construction lines that you don’t want to see in the final drawing.

Step Four:

Almost done drawing! Tighten up your pencil lines and make the drawing nice and clean so you can prepare to add color. Don’t forget to make Rumi’s squinting eye smaller than her other one!

Step Five:

I like to color with markers, but you can use anything you want — crayons, colored pencils, or the computer! You can even make copies of your finished pencil drawing to practice using different coloring media. I add a lot of layers with my markers before I’m ready to ink and highlight the drawing. Here, I put down the grayscale using markers.

Step Six:

After the grayscale, add color. Add the black ink lines after you’re done coloring, so it won’t bleed when touched with the wet marker. Wait until the markers are completely dry, then go over it with the ink outlines. Use a black pen to go around the head. It can be hard to get a nice, smooth line. Practice makes perfect. There is a lot of detail, so be patient and take your time.

When you’re done with inking, add some white pencil to lighten up certain areas, and thicker white paint for the final, strong, white highlights — like the dots in the eyes, for example. My markers were a little too light when I scanned it in, so I darkened the colors using my computer.

Now you’re done! Don’t forget to sign your drawing before you show it to family and friends.
