R2-D2 is the little android that is part of the Star Wars saga. He is usually accompanied by his android pal C-3PO whose character is more careful, and sensible, while R2’s character is an adventurous risk taker. Most folks don’t know that R2-D2 was a name made up on the set of American Graffiti from a cutter who asked for R2-D2 “reel 2 dialog 2”. As it goes, R2-D2 is a droid from Naboo that served upon the Royal Starship. I knew him best from the Star Wars movies of the 1970’s. He was sold to Luke Skywalker and his uncle Owen by Jawa traders. He was almost left behind if it wasn’t for his counterpart 3PO. We all know how the story goes from all of the six Star Wars movies; I don’t think I need to go any further on the description of this android. I grew up loving him; I think he is a funny, energetic character with loads of personality. I did have a question that needed to be answered, which was “did he have any weapons built into him at all?” Yes, he had an arc welder and a buzz saw, I don’t think he used them on anyone but that is what he is equipped with. He was also an onboard astromech on the X-wing, Naboo N-1, and the starfighter. In 2003 he was added to the Robot Hall of Fame for being one of the most popular droid characters in all the Star Wars flicks. This tutorial shows you "how to draw R2-D2" with a total of six easy steps. The instructions are simple to read and learn from. The sketch of him took me longer to make then making the tutorial for him. I hope you enjoyed this read, I will see you again very shortly.
