How To Draw Baby Yoda

Let’s learn how to draw Baby Yoda from the Star Wars “Mandalorian” series.

Baby Yoda became a HUGE hit after the show came out. His other name is “Grogu” but most people know him as Baby Yoda. He’s considered a boy but looks more like a lumpy green potato to some people. Others find him absolutely adorable.

Baby Yoda has large eyes which matches our kawaii art style and makes it super easy for us to create a drawing tutorial without changing the character too much.

Did You Know?
Baby Yoda is actually 50 years old.
His real name is "Grogu"

Art Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!

  • Pencil, Marker, Sharpie, Pen (Anything you can draw with!)
  • Paper (We love marker paper but use anything you can find).
  • Colored Markers (if you want to color the drawing).
    Here are what we think are the best colored pencils, best gel pens and best markers for coloring.
  • Your imagination (feel free to change colors or add things to the drawing!).

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • Keep the eyes large enough to bring out his cuteness.
  • Take your time with the head and ears. They are the most important part to get his “look”.

Step 6: Next is the eyes! Draw two egg shapes where the sharper part of both eyes meet in the middle. See how they appear like alien eyes. Make sure to add one small circle on each (which remains white) and shade the entire eyes black.
