Hi everybody, welcome to anew NIL-Tech drawing tutorial:"Mandalorian and Baby Yoda". Everybody appears to have fallen for the new Disney+ show The Mandalorian. There's a lot to love about the show, from its Western movie inspiration to call-backs to the original trilogy. And don't forget about the cutest Baby Yoda (oh, and the Mandalorian himself, of course). The show proves that there's a lot of life left in the Star Wars franchise.
1. What's a Mandalorian, anyway? Mandalorians are a race from the planet Mandalore. They always use a distinct suit of armor, including a helmet with a T-shaped visor like the show's main character. One of the most popular Mandalorian is probably Boba Fett, who showed up in the original trilogy. The Mandalorians are warriors as well as typically work as bounty hunters.
2. Stacked to the stars. The show features quite stacked actors, including Werner Herzog, Carl Weathers, Taika Waititi, and Giancarlo Esposito. Will the likes of Harrison Ford or maybe even Mark Hamill end up on that list in season two? Well, we will find out soon!
3. The Seedy Star Wars Underbelly. The original title for the series was Stars Wars: Underworld. It would have taken place between "Revenge of the Sith and "A New Hope". People involved with the project described it as "gritty," involving a lot of dialogue as well as familiar faces like Han Solo as well as C-3PO. Does anyone else still sort of wish to see that show?
4. Howdy. John Favreau, the creator of the series, shared in the interview that he chose the Mandalorian as the star since it "hearkened back to the Westerns and samurai films that had originally influenced Lucas." Like Clint Eastwood, the Mandalorian is a mystical, gun-slinging character that doesn't say much while getting the job done.
5. The Lucas Seal of Approval. While making the initial season, George Lucas made a surprise visit to Favreau's birthday set. Lucas was additionally involved with assisting with the series.
In this tutorial, we used the following supplies:
Step 1. Draw the skeleton. It consists of the direction body's and shoulders bending, arms, and legs. With circles, outline the joints area (pencil B).
Step 2. Let's start drawing the body. Since the Malondorian is walking, the legs will be at different levels and different lengths (pencil B).
Step 3. Draw the palms, armor, and helmet (pencil B).
Step 4. Go down the drawing and add details on the legs. Outline the bag with Yoda (pencil B).
Step 5. Add the final details such as the weapons and cloak and draw Baby Yoda (pencil B).
Step 6. Erase all excess construction lines. Brighten contour with a softer pencil (pencil 3B).
Step 7. Start coloring in with hatching the armor and the body itself (colored pencils: silver and dark gray).
Step 8. Now we start working with shadows. With a black pencil, we make the tone brighter and adding volume in darker areas (colored black pencil). We make shadows with a dark gray and blue pencil in the light areas (colored pencils: dark gray, blue).
Step 9. Hatch the remaining areas and the weapon from behind (colored pencils: green, brown, yellow, brick, dark gray).
Step 10. Drawing the shadows. For dark areas, we use black and blue pencils; for shadows on gloves - brown. For all other areas - use darker pencils (colored pencils: pink, dark green, blue, black, dark brown).
