After watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens, many people have come to love various characters – mainly Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, or others. However, I left the theater obsessing over our new droid, BB-8! BB-8 is a character you can't help but fall in love with; he is small, smart, and sassy. Even though BB-8 is a droid, he is a character that you cannot help but connect to on an emotional level. For such a small, chubby robot, BB-8 has one of the biggest hearts in the movie.

Personally, I fell in love with BB-8 from watching the trailers alone. For that reason, I decided to make a speed drawing video of BB-8 and R2-D2 that you can check out below. My YouTube channel will feature various speed drawings and paintings of various characters from pop culture, and my own art. Let me know what you think, and if you haven't already, go watch the movie and fall in love with BB-8!
