Qui-Gon Jinn was a revered, yet maverick and unconventional Human male Jedi Master. He was the Padawan to Count Dooku, and the mentor to Obi-Wan Kenobi and briefly Anakin Skywalker. Jinn often placed himself in conflict with the Jedi High Council. He was deeply attuned to the Living Force, which contributed to him frequently taking side trips to help seemingly weak and useless life-forms. Despite his opposition to the council, he was regarded by many Jedi as sharp-witted and possessing great wisdom.

Below are step by step how to draw Qui-Gon Jinn’s portrait.  Step one, I sketched his basic facial structure.  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 drew his eyes, nose, and lips over his existing measure grid lines.  Then I drew his hair.  Step three, I added his beard and some shadow under his eye’s sockets.  Step four, I then painted medium gray over the image.  Step five, I started adding some shadow and try to achieve realistic facial structure.  Step six, at this step I can add really dark gray and some highlight on hot spots.
