How to Draw Batman
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Batman from The Animated Series. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Batman with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Batman, start with a sideways oval, which will be the basic shape for Batman’s head. It doesn’t have to be perfect; it’s just a guide.
Step 2: On the lower left side of the oval, draw a shape that’s similar to a square with the top missing. This will be Batman's jaw/chin.
Step 3: Next draw a curved vertical line from the top of the oval to the bottom of the square and a curved horizontal line across the bottom of the oval. These are construction lines that will help you place this cartoon character's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a series of lines below the entire shape as a guide for Batman's thick neck.
Step 5: That's it for the initial sketch of Batman from Batman: The Animated Series! You have the basic cartoon Batman shape, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
