Superman is the very first and coolest comic book hero ever. That is why we love to create lessons about how to draw Superman step by step. As you can see today we have created another one. Let’s try to draw it!
First, we outline the base part of our character’s figure. We use a stickman for this. As you know, this is a figure consisting of sticks and circles. Here we see a strong muscular male figure with a wide chest and a narrow pelvis. Character height equals the sum of the lengths of 6 heads.
In this step, we will connect the circular shapes from the last step. First we connect the head and chest to get the neck. In our case, the neck looks like a strong short cylinder. Next, we depict graceful curved lines that connect the wide chest and narrow pelvis. At the end of this stage, we outline two intersecting lines on the face that divide the head into equal parts.
Now let’s add some volume to the limbs of Superman. The deltoids, elbows and knees of our character should be marked as ordinary rounded shapes, and the arms and legs should be sketched in the form of slightly modified cylinders. Also, in this stage we sketch out the hands clenched into fists and feet with rough lines.
So we outline the basic facial features with the help of ordinary dashes. We also outline the hair with a wavy line. On the body of our hero, we have the outline of the logo. We complete the step and outline the contours of the mantle.
So we continue the guide on how to draw Superman step by step. And now we draw the final facial features. Avoid too much detail. Draw the ovals of the eyes, with a few intermittent short lines, outline the nose and mouth. Do not forget about the hair.
Now we can work on the torso of our Superman. So we depict neck muscles, perceptible and large pectoral muscles and abdominal muscles. In the middle of the thorax we depict Superman sign. After that we delete all unnecessary guidelines from the body and proceed to the next stage.
We are really lucky. Hands are one of the most difficult areas to draw. In this step, we outline the contours of the powerful shoulders and arms of our superhero. After this action we can remove all unnecessary guidelines from the upper body and move to the lower limbs.
It remains only to work with the final contours of the legs of our character. Let’s circle the contours of the legs with clear, confident lines. Knee joints should be indicated with a few strokes. Do not forget about the angular line that separates the boots from the pants.
This is the final stage of the guide on how to draw Superman. In this step, we will depict the final contours of Superman’s mantle and draw longitudinal folds on the fabric along the entire length of this mantle. Folds on the fabric are very important because they help convey the character’s pose or movement at a particular moment.
We hope you get a great result and your Superman looks very realistic and menacing. Do not forget to share your results and comments with us.
