Collection of drawings of Chewbacca from Star Wars in multiple casual poses and with the bowcaster

Chewbacca, or Chewie as nicknamed by his partner Han Solo, is a tall and hairy Wookie who often co-pilots the Millennium Falcon starship throughout George Lucas’ Star Wars fantasy universe. Adventuring throughout space alongside Han Solo, Chewbacca is a loyal and gentle-giant sidekick and renowned smuggler that becomes instrumental in the Rebel’s fight against the Empire. Chewbacca carries a bowcaster (energy crossbow) for protection and often has to turn to his physical strength and size in their travels.

What was the character design of Chewbacca based on?
