Hello dear artists. One of the largest categories we have on our website is called “Comics” in which we feature superheroes from a variety of comics. There are already some popular characters such as Spider-Man, Batman, and Superman. We’ve also decided to draw the most famous superhero from The Watchmen team. Let’s take a look at drawing Dr. Manhattan.
To draw a person correctly it is necessary to sketch the skeleton of his body. The first step is to sketch the head in the shape of an oval. Then outline the neck using an elongated line. In the same direction, we trace the spine, the length is equivalent to the length of three heads. Along the spine, sketch out the wide thorax and slim pelvis. The thorax’s size is the size of the two heads. Then sketch on the arms (which have a length equal and height to three heads) along with the leg (in length, they’re equal in length to height 4 heads). We can thus see how the superhero’s physique is approximately the size of eight heads.
Let’s draw lines that intersect on the head which will aid in drawing facial features. Draw an arc of vertical lines that is directly across the center of the facial features. Then draw the horizontal line that will assist us in drawing eyes. These lines must cross within the area between the nasal bridge. Then sketch out the neck in the shape of a circular shape. With curved lines, connect the pelvis and thorax creating a torso that narrows significantly in the waist area. Utilizing ovals to draw out the shoulders. Then draw out the arms using the aid of geometric shapes. Be aware that forearms must be a lot shorter within the wrist region. Then draw your hands
. Draw the triangular pelvis as well as legs using geometric shapes. Be aware that legs must be narrower in the area of the ankles and knees.
If you’ve done everything correctly and you’re satisfied, then you can get a dummy as described in the earlier step. In the beginning, we sketch the outline of the jaw and cheekbones. Then, draw the clavicles as well as the outline of the pectoral muscle. After that, smooth lines, connect the geometric figures drawn in earlier steps to create the outline of muscles. Draw the lines of broad deltoid muscles forearm muscles, and round biceps. Also, in the same manner linking the geometric shapes in the previous step, using the aid of smooth lines, outline the muscles in the legs.
In this next step, we’ll begin to work on the final aspects that Dr. Manhattan. On the horizontal line of the previous steps, draw the eyes. A little higher than the eyes, draw eyebrows using simple lines that are dark and simple. On the vertical line, draw the mouth and nose. Be aware that in this lesson, we take a look at the face of our superhero more from the bottom. When we have completed the exercise, carefully draw the jawline and cheekbones of our superhero.
Draw lines for neck muscles. Then draw lines of powerful shoulders and pectoral muscles that are large. Utilizing small curved lines, sketch out abdominal muscles as well as the Oblique muscles. Move the arms to trace the outline of the biceps as well as the muscles that make up the forearm. Draw the fingers carefully (to find out more information about this technique, refer to the instructional on drawing the hands).
We’ll now look at the lower section in the lower body part which is Dr. Manhattan. Take care to draw the quadriceps and outline the knees, and the Calf muscles. Pay attention to exactly where the lines for leg muscles are. They are most visible in the area of the knees. In the same way, remove the feet and toes. Then at the close of this process take out all unnecessary lines in the Dr. Manhattan drawing.
The drawing lesson on drawing Dr. Manhattan is nearly complete, and we just need to include shadows. When drawing comic characters that we draw black shadows and contrast shadows like in the lessons on The Apocalypse as well as Psylocke. However, in this lesson, we employ a different method of shading. Therefore, first, we need to determine the source of light. Then, add a thick, but small hatching of those areas in which the light doesn’t fall.
It was quite a large and challenging cognitive drawing lesson. In this lesson, we attempted to explain in greater detail the fundamentals of drawing a human. If you like this tutorial, please send it to your circle of friends and join our social media channels.
