# How To Draw R2-D2

## Step 1.

First step is sketching the outline for his shell. All you need to do is draw a big egg shape and this will complete this step.

## Step 2.

Now start drawing the robots tripod. He has two mechanical arms on both the left and right side. To draw this from top to bottom, start with sketching a rounded top and working your way down to a squared shape on bottom. The middle roller is just that a roller. This is also a squared off shape. Sketch out the lining of R2's body before moving to step 3.

## Step 3.

Here is were you will be sketching out all the detail to R2-D2's body. This may seem hard at first glance but it really is quite easy. It is just a bunch of different shaped squares and rectangles of all sizes that are in one big mama square. If you look at the image you can see how simple the whole process is. He has two wires that come from the bottom of the rollers on the sides of his frame, sketch those in as well.

## Step 4.

Here is just a short simple step that put more definition to the androids structure. On the left side it has little gadgets that make him complete. Finish off all the detailing in this step before moving to step 5. He has a lot of little tweaks all over his frame, so take your time and do it right.

## Step 5.

Here is where you will sketch and draw the remaining parts on R2-D2. As you can see he has the 3-D effect, and this is because the tripod was boxed when you where drawing him. Just simply draw three small circles to fill in the holes on the front, and like four more squared shapes on the bottom of his frame. Define the bottom part of both arms.

## Step 6.

In this step, you will start finishing off the bottom mechanics of R2 D2. This should be very easy. Use the guidelines for the wheels in order to make the straight lines and edges perfectly straight. I recommended using a ruler for most of these lines.

## Step 7.

Here is the finished product. Your drawing should resemble this when you are done. When I say done I mean when you are done erasing the guidelines and sketch marks. You can color him in or leave him as a sketch. R2-D2 is ready for his next Star Wars mission.
