If you are an avid Marvel Comics reader you should be familiar with this next figure that I am about to submit. Her name at birth is Raven Darkholme and she was created by David Cockrum, and Chris Claremont, and just for your information, David is the artist, and Chris is the writer. I know your thinking that you may be somewhat familiar with the name, but as a villain you should know who exactly I'm talking about. Today, I will be teaching you "how to draw Mystique, step by step". She is by far one of my favorite figures from the Marvel series, and from the first three X-Men movies. I think Rebecca Romijn did an excellent job portraying Mystique and I think a lot of you will agree with me when I say that. Anyways, Mystique is what you call a shape shifter. She can take the form of anyone she chooses, and because of this it is almost impossible to determine how old she is. The Mystique we know from the movie is very different from the background information given by the Marvel Comics website which talks all about her background and life. For me to sit here and tell you who she is, and what has happened in her life existence would probably be at least two pages long. I will provide a link for you guys that directs you right to the website where you can read all you want on Mystique and believe me when you are done reading about her, you will be like 'wow'. Did you know that it is said she is the mother of Nightcrawler? And did you know that she was once married to Victor Creed as well? It's all very interesting and I guarantee that you will have a blast learning "how to draw Mystique". I will be back later with some more fun stuff to do. In the mean time keep those pencils moving and those imaginations flowing.

How to Draw Mystique

how to draw mystique step 1

STEP 1.

Make an oval shape for Mystique's head, and then add the facial guidelines. Next, draw the shape of her torso and connect it to her body with a single neck line. Once that is done make a bowl like shape for her pelvic area, and then add in all the guidelines for the arms and legs.

STEP 2.

Here you will begin sketching out the shape of her upper body which will give her a physic. You will do this by making her neck shape, draw out the shoulders and arms, and then sketch out her chest, waist, and one breast like you see here. Her hands look like hammers right now because there are no fingers.

STEP 3.

Continue to sketch out her body which only consists of the legs from thigh to foot. Add her other breast, and then give her body some detailing on the belly, chest, and torso. Giver her some fingers, and then sketch out her short slicked back hairstyle like so. Lastly for this step all you need to do is draw out her eyes, and eyebrows.

STEP 4.

To finish off her body shape, sketch out her feet which are bare, and then her toes. Next, add in her nose, and mouth and then sketch in some definition to her body to try and show the texture of her skin. This is done by making scale like pattern on her chest, shoulders, and thighs. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one before you add the skin detailing.
