Now young fans of the Star Wars franchise have a little help in learning how to draw Darth Vader. With his complicated story line, and intimidating presence, it’s no wonder that he’s a fascinating character to all who know and love the Star Wars movies. This new step by step tutorial will show how to draw his famous mask and layered uniform. His most famous look comes with a pretty detailed looking belt, and big gloves, and of course, his cape.

How to Color Darth Vader

Please note that to get the dark gray shadowy look that is shown in the drawing above, it is important to have a dark gray marker. Not all school sets come with one, and if students make a detailed drawing of Darth and then color him black, all those shape will just blend in and you will have a black silhouette of Darth Vader. That might look cool too, but if they prefer to see all the buttons and what not on his uniform, some kind of dark gray marker is called for.

Caliart Markers

The most inexpensive solution that I could find were these Caliart 34 Dual Tip Markers that are included in my Materials list below. They were available on Amazon, under $15 for a giant set, and worked really well. I used the Gray #20, filled in all of Darth with one layer, and then went back and added a second layer to make his cape extra dark. I hope they offer a good solution for others as well!

For those that need a quick overview of who Darth Vader is, he was once the heroic Jedi Knight named Anakin Skywalker. He later was seduced by the dark side of the Force. Forever scarred by his defeat on Mustafar, Vader was transformed into a cybernetically-enhanced Sith Lord. At the dawn of the Empire, Vader led the Empire’s eradication of the Jedi Order and the search for survivors.

Materials for Darth Vader Drawing

Note: This post contains affiliate links. If you click and take action, I will be compensated a small amount at no expense to you.

  • Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
  • Pencil. Buying in bulk always saves money.
  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Marker. Fine point permanent markers are great for making a crisp outline to your drawing. Use them when you want your outline show up, but not be so heavy that it detracts from other things.
  • Caliart 34 Dual Tip Brush Markers. These colorful markers are completely non-toxic, kids safe, plus they wash off easily with water. I used Gray #20 to color my Darth Vader drawing.
