How to Draw Superman
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Superman from Justice League Unlimited. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing an oval near the top half of the page. This will be the basic shape for Superman’s head. It doesn’t have to be perfect. I’s just a guide.
Step 2: Under the oval draw an angled line with three corners. This will be Superman's jaw and chin.
Step 3: Next draw a curved vertical line from the top of the oval to the bottom of the lower chin line. Draw a curved horizontal line across the oval and a smaller horizontal line at the halfway point between it and the bottom of the oval. These are construction lines that will help you place Superman’s facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a series of lines below the entire shape as a guide for Superman's thick neck.
Step 5: That’s it for the initial sketch! You have the basic Superman 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.
