Hello everybody! We welcome you to DrawingForAll. Today we are going to draw one of the most courageous comic book heroes of all time. He is a member of the “X-Men” team, a true samurai, charismatic and brutal mutant, which seems to overcome all the hardships and went through all the possible troubles that are only able to fall on a man, without losing a sense of humor and indomitable will.
Of course, you have guessed that today we will draw Wolverine. Today’s lesson is devoted to classic Wolverine, which was created by writer Len Wein and John Romita, Sr. So, let’s start the tutorial and find out how to draw Wolverine!
Before you will begin to draw you need to take a look at the shapes. As we mentioned, our Wolverine is drawn In classical Marvel way, which is characterized by anatomically correct and realistic proportions. So, first mark the position and pose of Wolverine by using lines and ovals. Using ovals, we outline the head and fists. Using lines draw the hands, legs and torso.
Now we outline the silhouette. Using circles outline the knees, fists, and shoulders. By the ovals and cylinders outline the hands and legs. Also in this stage we draw claws and protruding parts of the mask.
By the way, Wolverine first appeared back in 1974 in the pages of a comic book about the Hulk (The Incredible Hulk #180). In the same issue, Wolverine was clad in a distinctive yellow suit with a mask, an improved version of which now we draw. Don’t forget that we have drawing lessons about the other members of team X-Men, for example, Nightcrawler
In this step, we will finish with the Wolverine’s head. Using the horizontal guideline from the first step draw the eyes. Draw the mask in detail and erase the guidelines. Draw the mouth with the clenched teeth, and don’t forget to add some wrinkles to enhance the emotions.
It this step draw the torso. Draw the pectorals and outline the abs. Erase all the guidelines from the torso and draw black stripes of the suit. By the way, as you noticed, the Wolverine costume is very unusual, it has unusual details and lines. This costume reminds us of wrestlers’ costumes from the 70s. Move to the next step.
At this step we will draw wolverine’s hands. It should be remembered that the main muscles in the arms are deltoids, biceps, triceps and muscles of the forearm.
Using ovals from the second step, draw deltoids. Notice that the biceps are a circular shape. The triceps more visible in the upper Part of the arm, under the deltoid. Muscles of the forearm narrow from the elbow to the brushes. Finish this step by drawing fists and claws.
Draw the legs using the guidelines from the second step. We see the quadriceps and calf muscles. Draw them guided by our example. Erase remaining guidelines and draw the shoes. By the way, do not forget that Wolverine has rather unusual boots that, that repeat “horns” or “ears” at the head of Logan.
And finally we reach the last step in the tutorial on how to draw Wolverine. At this step we add the shadows and paint all black costume details. Notice that all the shadows in this draft made in the classic comics way.
To add shadows like in our example, you need to first outline the contours of the shadows and then paint them out. Another note – hand hair must be drawn with fine hatching.
