How to Draw Thor


We continue to pump the technique of drawing with the team of Drawingforall.net. Today we draw another Marvel Universe character – a mighty superhero Thor. Marvel Universe Thor is based on the image of the eponymous god of Norse mythology. Thor was created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby, and first appeared in the comics Journey into Mystery # 83 (1962). So, let’s start the tutorial, and learn how to draw Thor.


Step 1

At first we need to sketch out the skeleton of Thor. Using an oval draw the head. Sketch out the body of the character using smooth lines. Sketch out the Mjolnir. If you want to learn more about the hammer of Thor, visit our drawing lesson about how to draw Mjolnir. Look closely at the hand holding a hammer – it really should look shorter than another due to the perspective (aimed in our direction). Sketch out the outlines of the rock, on which stands Thor.

At this step let’s add volume to the body of Thor. At first draw the lines of facial symmetry. Note, that these lines show us the position of the face. Using circles and ovals draw the elbows and knees. Draw the arms and legs using cylinders.
