The written step-by-step video tutorial:
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: Draw a small circle near the top of the page as a guide for Superman's head. First draw four tiny marks for the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. The circle is just a guide and doesn't need to be perfect, but if you want a perfect circle, just trace the outline of a coin or any other circular object. Draw a small U-shaped arc under the head as a guide for Superman's jaw and chin. Don't draw the arc too low, otherwise ol' Kal-El will end up with a big chin.
Step 2: Draw a vertical line across the entire head as a guide to help you place Superman's facial features later. Add two tiny lines under the head as guides for the neck. Draw a big oval under the head as a guide for the chest. Pay close attention to the size of the chest in relation to the head. Sketch it lightly at first to get it right. Superman is a medium- sized character, so don't make the oval too big.
Step 3: Draw the middle section of Superman's torso using a series of lines under the oval. Use two slightly tilted vertical lines for the sides and a curved horizontal line for the bottom. Draw a pentagon- like shape under the midsection for the lowest part of the torso. Draw two short vertical lines for the sides, then add a wide V-shaped line at the bottom.
Step 4: Draw a small half-circle on the upper left side of the torso as a guide for the first shoulder. Add a U-shaped curved line under the half-circle as a guide for the bicep on the left. On the right side, draw the guide for Superman's bicep first as a half-circle near the bottom part of the chest. Then draw a short, curved line above the half-circle as a guide for the other shoulder.
Step 5: Draw a small oval under the U- shaped line on the left side as a guide for the top part of the forearm. Draw the bottom part of the forearm under the small oval using a series of short lines. Draw a small circle at the end of the arm as a guide for Superman's fist. On the lower right side of the body, first draw a small circle as a guide for the fist. Then connect the fist to the bicep using two curved lines to create the guide for the forearm on the right.
