"Why you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder!" - Princess Leia to Han Solo, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

You can learn how to draw a chibi Han Solo, the daring and dashing galactic smuggler and captain of the famed Millennium Falcon. Hone your skills, and you'll give Han no reason to say, "Who's scruffy looking?"

Han grew up an orphan on the planet Corellia. He ran away and joined the Galactic Empire as a soldier, then became a smuggler. He won his ship, the Millennium Falcon, from Lando Calrissian during a card game. The fastest ship in the galaxy, the Falcon can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

His work as a smuggler brought him to the planet of Tatooine, home of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. There, Han met Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. They set out on an adventure to return two droids - R2-D2 and C-3PO to Princess Leia but ended up rescuing her from Darth Vader.

Reluctantly, Han joined the Rebellion against the Empire and helped them destroy the Death Star, an armored battle station capable of blowing up entire planets with a single laser beam.

Did you know? In both the Star Wars canon and Legends, Han and Leia got married! In Legends, they had three children - twins Jacen and Jaina as well as a son named Anakin. In the canon films, their son was Ben Solo, also known as Kylo Ren.

1. Begin by sketching Han's eyes. Use curved lines to form the rectangular eyebrows. Below them, outline the eyes.

Notice that the sides of the eyes do not fully connect to the bottoms. Enclose a partial circle within each eye, and shade a smaller circle inside the first to indicate the pupil. Draw a short line between the brows, and use a "7" shaped line for the nose.
