Vintage superheroes were usually big and strong. So, do you know how to draw superheroes with big muscles and a cool attitude? First, draw a circle for the head and a rectangle for the chest.

Then, sketch several circles to form the arms. Be sure to keep proportions accurate between the forearms and the arms. Draw some lines on the chest and erase your basic shapes to draw a more credible character!
