How to draw Cyclops from X-Men

Hello! Today, the main hero of our drawing class will be the team leader of the X-Men, Cyclops. “Cyclops” is a nickname, the actually name of this character is Scott Summers. Cyclops is a wise and discreet man. It is the Cyclops comes up with different action plans and tactics for the whole team X-Men.

Cyclops have a lot of respect among the X-Men members, the only person he has occasional quarrel is Wolverine. But today we will talk about how to draw Cyclops. So, let’s start the tutorial!


Step 1

Draw a stickman figure of our hero. Note that in this drawing lesson we are dealing with a very unusual angle. This perspective greatly distorts the proportions in the early stages. Using an oval draw the head. Using simple lines draw torso, hands and legs. Note, that in this step you should not press down too hard on a pencil.

Step 2

Start to add volume to the body of Cyclops. First sketch out the outlines of the body (upper part). Hands are very powerful and large, especially shoulders, that look like circles. Don’t forget to draw the guidelines of the face of our hero which show the location of :

  • hair;
  • glasses;
  • nose;
  • mouth
