Start off with the basic lines for the body. Then continue with outlining the head .
Outline his right arm , then his left one .
Now outline his pants and his legs. Finish with a few details .
Ok now using a 2B pencil slightly suggest the shadows over the whole body .
Smudge very well, also you don't have to smudge only on the ares you drew, you can smudge on its sides as well , this blends the whole thing very well so it won't look cropped .
Now make a second darker layer over the first one. Smudge it as well.
After you have all the shadows it's relatively easy to add the details. It's just like sharpening a blurred image . Begin with making the details on his right arm, like little shadows under the muscles .
Now move down to the right half of his torso. Careful not to make his pectoral muscles look like balloons , the muscle fiber is visible on someone who is in his physical condition so try to keep that in mind.
Now make some ...more than basic shadows on his head and the straps of cloth that flow in the wind .
Finnish the last details on his head.
Move on to the left side of his torso.
Make the final dark shadows in his left arm.
Now make the lighter shadows, also detail the ropes on his arm.
Shade the belt.
Now further define the already existing shadows on the leg. Thicken the lines from the strips on his leg , also adding highlights right next to them using an eraser .
Now shade the muscles on the leg.
Shade the pants .
Now get some graphite powder and smudge if on the paper. Careful not to smudge on your champion .
