It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman! In this tutorial I will be showing you "how to draw Superman", step by step which is one of America’s favorite super heroes. Created in 1932 by a writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, Superman was sold to D.C Comics. In 1938 Superman made his first appearance in Action Comics #1 as well as various radio, television, and movie spots. Superman is one of my favorite heroes and I thought to myself I should make a tutorial on how to draw him. I did first sketch him out on a sheet of sketching paper and used a regular sketch pencil. I gave superman a modern look as we all see him now in cartoons, appose to the earlier images of this boy wonder. He may look hard to draw but really, it’s pretty simple. Drawing superman has a lot of line work that you will see in this tutorial, but if you have a steady hand and some patience you should be able to pull it off just fine. Remember make him look good because as you know Clark Kent and Superman have a crush on the same girl, Louis Lane and we all know who she wants more. You can give him a back ground if you like that is totally up to you, I added some color. Well have fun drawing this chiseled stud from krypton, and remember the more muscle the better. I promise that learning "how to draw Superman" is going to be a lot funner than you think.
