Hello! Today we are glad to present you our new drawing lesson. As you saw from the preview, the topic of our today’s lesson will be drawing superhero, Marvel universe, Mr. Fantastic. Real name of Mr. Fantastic is Reed Richards. Every fan of Marvel knows this outstanding leader, who is also known as a brilliant scientist and a caring head of the family.
First, draw a circle. As you may have guessed, it will denote the head of Reed Richards. Draw a circle inside two lines. First, vertical, will indicate facial symmetry. Horizontal will show the location of the eyes. Important point – line must not be moved to the right or left.
In this step, draw the palm. Pay attention to the size of the palm – it’s very big compared with earlier painted head. Palm should look like this, it seemed as though she is at a great distance from the head. Don’t forget we draw a superhero who is able to stretch.
Well, our reed Richards is very disproportionate. Now draw the left arm from us. Shoulder and forearm should be disproportionately long, and the palm should be disproportionately round.
Draw the legs and lower torso. Inguinal region looks like an hourglass laid on its side. The front leg should be larger than the rear. This difference in size is not achieved by the superpowers, and the rules of perspective. Reed’s legs in our figure are quite human.
Draw short lines to show the location of facial features and hair. Focus on the layout of the first step.
