Learn how to make a Baby Yoda Valentine by drawing him holding a heart. Homemade cards don’t get much cuter than this.
If your students are fans of Baby Yoda, and want to make their Valentine cards look extra cool this year, then this tutorial might be just what they need. Sure, super artsy Valentine cards that look like fine art are always nice, but sometimes it’s fun to make a connection to contemporary things too. After all, if students find they can draw something (or someone) that they totally recognize, who knows where that might lead?
Fo those that notice the cool little shadows on Baby Yoda, and want to get the same look for their drawing, I highly recommend the combination of Stabilo® Power Wallet markers and real drawing paper. The Stabilo markers are great for layering color, and drawing paper (as opposed to just copy paper) seems to make them show up the best. I tried out many different brands over the years, before settling on these.
