How to Draw Baby Yoda

Add a little pop culture to your art, and learn how to draw Baby Yoda from Disney’s new Mandalorian series. Follow my nine steps to see how easy it is to draw this very cute and very popular character.

How to Draw Baby Yoda

This little guy has been dubbed Baby Yoda, and is the apparent star of the new Disney Mandalorian series. He’s suddenly everywhere, so an easy drawing tutorial to help elementary age students learn how to draw him seemed like a good idea. And if pop culture is what it takes to help connect more students to drawing, then so be it. (No copyright infringement is intended.)

Note: Because Yoda’s cuteness is all about his eyes, I shared a tip in my tutorial. If you lightly plan the eyes by starting with dots for the corners, before you connect them, then you have a much better chance of drawing them the same size. It’s frustrating if you draw two beautiful eyes, and afterwards realize that one is a bit larger than the other.

    Thanks Sofia, glad to hear he’s pretty well known with elementary students too, I wasn’t so sure about that. All I know is that my 23 year old son loves him!
