Step 1: What You'll Need

I used brush tip markers, a mechanical pencil, and a ultra fine tip sharpie, but any type of markers and pencil will work.

Step 4: Details

In this step, you can really decide weather to make it detailed like mine, or just add some lines and boxes. It's all up to you.

Step 5: More Detail...

Now add some curved lines between the plates, That will give him a more round look. Also, if you want to, add some small circles on either side of of the curved lines to represent bolts and screws.

Step 6: Head

Now add BB-8s head. It's basically just a half circle on top of his body with 2 lines going inward at the bottom.

Step 7: Details of the Upper Half

Now we will add some details to his head. Start with a large circle on the left side for his eye. Then to the right and down of the eye, add a smaller circle for his sensor.

Step 8: More Head Work...

Now add 2 antennas to the top of his head. One can be taller then the other. Also has 2 lines to the bottom of his head and one at the top like in the picture.

Step 9: Sharpie!

Now we will outline certain parts of BB-8 with the thicker sized marker.

Step 10: More Sharpie!

Now, with the thin sharpie, outline the rest of BB-8. After this step there should be sharpie over all the pencil, unless your keeping yours black and white.
Remember to erase the stray lines of pencil.

Step 11: Color!
