Below are step by step instruction how to draw Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Step one, I drew basic shape of his head and shoulder along with his body.  The vertical line in the middle is a measure line for his facial structure, a pair of horizontal lines are half its height .  The parallel lines is where I would place his eyes.  The nose mark is half way between the eye lines and bottom of the chin.  Then the mouth is half of that.  Step two, I sketch initial eyes, eyebrows, nose, and lips over the grid lines.  Then I sketched out his cloth and coat roughly.  Step three, I added medium gray on his hair and coat.  Step four, I applied more medium and dark gray on his face to get basic light and shadow.  Step five, I added some highlight on his facial feature and some on his clothes.  Step six, at this stage I can add some black to bring out the contrast and finish the sketch by clean up.
