How to Draw Jabba the Hutt

Step 1.

Jabba the Hutt is a very hefty built character so you will have to convey that in the drawing. Draw a big circle for the mid section of his body and then draw a mound like shape on top of his body. You will then add the facial guidelines and then the limb lines including the tail.

Step 2.

Now you will start sketching out the slanted shape of the eyes and then his misshapen nostril holes. Add the shape of his stubby arms and then draw out the thickness of the tail as you see here.

Step 3.

You will now start sketching out the wrinkling shape of his body and then sketch in the mouth and all the wrinkle lines on his chest and then his mouth. Add the eyeballs and then his short finger shapes. You will then draw the remaining shape of his tail as it curls inward. Draw the piece of cloth that is resting beside his slum nasty body.

Step 4.

This is your last drawing step and as you can see you will start sketching in the detailed definition lines that make Jabba look so gross. Make sure you add all the wrinkle, and crease lines all over his body leaving the mid section of his fat belly blank. Under his tail you can see round suction like holes. Once you have completed this step you can start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your work.

Step 5.

One you are done your Star Wars character that you drew should come out looking like the one you see here. All you have to do is add some color and you have completed this tutorial on how to draw Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars step by step. Learning how to draw Star Wars characters are fun and when you are done you always feel fulfilled.

Sci-fi fantasy movies are the best and you can often get a good sense of how they will end while you watch them because they are imaginative and they contain characters that are usually from another world. One of my all time favorite sci-fi movies is that from George Lucas. I decided to try and draw one character a day from the movie series. So for today I will be showing you how to draw Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars step by step. Now for those of you that only know the basics about Jabba from the movie, I’ll give you the 411 on this Star Wars character that has made a lasting impression on the minds of thousands of people across the world. For one Jabba the Hutt is probably one of the top characters created by George Lucas. His real name is Jabba Desilijic Tiure and he is one of the biggest Hutt crime lords that ran an illegal empire outside of his palace on Tatooine. Some of the illegal things that Jabba has made a living on were smuggling, gunrunning, slavery, and even straight piracy. One of his bounty hunters was the very popular Boba Fett and he is the one that captured Princess Leia to sit beside him enslaved in chains and dressed in a very flesh revealing outfit. Jabba the Hutt was also responsible for the imprisonment of Han Solo due to the fact that he first dropped a shipment of spices and then secondly how Han Solo was part responsible for the destruction of Crimson Jack’s ship. Han was later frozen in a block of carbonite but was later rescued from his friends, Luke, Leia, R2-D2, and C-3PO. Jabba the Hutt was a slimy looking slug like alien that was very large in size. He also comes from the planet of Nal Hutta. I did have a lot of fun drawing out this Star Wars character and I look forward to drawing many more. I used several reference pictures to get the look of him just right. The coloring also came out awesome and I know that you will all like learning how to draw Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars step by step. I will be back soon with more drawing fun.
