Time to save the whole world! If you don't have access to one, you can learn how to draw a superhero so that you can have some help for this very crucial mission! It's true that superheroes are more popular than ever. There are plenty of novels and movies about this subject and we can easily guess that this trend won't disappear soon! Let me show you how to draw a funny version of a superhero using only basic elements.

How to Draw A Superhero

Step 1

Let's begin with sketching the head using an oval shape. This shape must be large enough to contain large eyes. The body is made from a thin rectangle. The legs are also made from a small thin rectangle.

Step 4

Since we are now good at drawing circles, let's draw two more of these shapes to illustrate the pupils. Once you are done, you can draw a curved line inside the head to create the mask. Finally, don't forget to draw a large cape on the back of the cartoon superhero.
