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.
You can start working on this beautiful cartoon character using the video below. If you prefer to use the written version of this tutorial, simple scroll down a little bit more. Both versions are slightly different, but the result should be the same! :)
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.
When you are ready to proceed, you can also sketch the feet using small circles. The arms are made from long rectangles. Finally, you can complete this step by drawing the hands of the cartoon character.
Time to draw some circular shapes! First, create the eyes using large circles. See on the illustration below how much room these new shapes are covering. Then, draw two small ears using two additional circles.
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.
You can complete this lesson by adding two more oval shapes inside the pupils. A large curved line can be drawn to form the mouth while a smaller one is required to illustrate the nose.
That's it! This is the final illustration of this cartoon hero. The black and white version below shows how simple this character is to draw once you are familiar with all six steps.
If you want to work on a muscular version, you can try this simple cartoon superhero featuring a character in a blue suit. You can also try another version of a superhero made with no outlines. Finally, a more complex version filled with effects and shadows can also be sketched. Enjoy! :)
