How to draw the Swamp Thing

Today we will show you how to draw the Swamp Thing from DC Comics Universe. He is not the most popular comic book character, but we hope that fans of the DС Universe will like this drawing lesson.


Step 1

We wiil begin this drawing tutorial with a stickman. At first we draw the head in a form of ordinary circle. After that you should draw the lines of the body: neck, shoulders, spine, arms and legs.The head and the body of the Swamp Thing is little bigger and wider, than ordinary human’s head and body. But despite this our hero has the same proportions as the tall man. We mean that the shoulders should be wider than the pelvis and the height should be equal to the sum of the lengths of 8 heads

This step is only needed to mark position of the hero on a sheet of paper, so we need to use very light lines in the first step.

Step 2

In this step we will create a silhouette of the character. Draw round balls of the shoulders, after that connect them with a head, using a pair of lines (you probably guessed that we mean neck). Note that the shoulders are about the size of the head.

The next action is the drawing of the arms – they are represented by round figures. Sketch out the silhouettes of the hands. Using a semi-circle draw the torso which narrows to the waist. At the end of the step we draw the contours of the legs.

Step 3

It’s time to draw the details. First of all, draw little frowning eyes with horizontal eyebrows. Below we draw the mouth. As you can see our hero does not have a nose – it is really interesting feature. Use the intersecting lines from the previous step to draw the details of the face.
