Greeting dear artists and comic book fans! Today we present you a new drawing tutorial about how to draw Mystique. Mystique (Raven Darkholme) is a character from Marvel Comics associated with The X-Men. Created by the artist Dave Kokrum.


Step 1

Since Mystique is a girl, we will apply here the principles of drawing a female figure, which are slightly different from the male figure. At first the chin and the whole face are narrower. Shoulders are equal or narrower than the pelvis.

Step 2

Let’s start adding volume, but first we’ll outline the lines of symmetry of the face. As always, we draw a horizontal line for the eyes and a vertical line in order to find the center of the face. With the help of curved lines draw the torso.

With the help of circles draw the shoulders and knees. Then, using elongated cylinders draw her arms. Draw the hands clenched into fists. Next, outline the legs, which are wide in the hips and taper closer to the knees.

Let’s begin adding details. Draw two slightly curved hair lines. On the horizontal line draw almond-shaped eyes and thin eyebrows above the eyes. Draw out the line of the face and form her cheekbone and chin.
