Hey everyone, how about another fanbased tutorial that's been requested so many times, my eyes have bled. In this new lesson, we'll be learning “how to draw Max from Maximum Ride”. Currently, this character is featured in a series of books that's been quite popular, as well as the manga series. I hear rumors that the movie for “Maximum Ride” is in production. I've never read or heard of this character until I've received numerous requests to “draw Maximum Ride, Max”. This character was drawn during my livestream broadcasts on June 9th, 2011. I had fun with a rather new coloring style to spice up the look of this character. Angels are a favorite of mine, and I tend to find new ways to draw the wings of angel. When it comes to drawing angels, you've always got to keep in mind the wings in comparison of the human. Will the wings support the weight of the person in order to achieve a successful flight? Notice how I drew Max with large wings in order to support her body. Anyways, I've got to flee now. I had so much fun designing this chick and I hope you will too. Thanks for viewing and enjoy!

How to Draw Max, Maximum Ride

STEP 1.

There is thirteen steps so let me try and explain them as easy as possible. Draw a head shape and then the torso and hip area. You will connect all three shapes with lines that are also body parts like the neck, stomach, legs, and arms.

Now you will sketch out the hair in more form and detail. AS you can see her locks are flowing behind her on the back of the wing. Add some minor detailing to the top of her hairstyle and move along to step six.

STEP 11.

It is now time that you begin drawing out her wing and as you can see you will attack this task the same way you would with any other wing. Draw the feathers one by one, and because you are doing it like this, it may take a while before completion.

STEP 12.

Here you will draw out the finger feather and notice the further you go down the smaller the feathers become. Take your time because there is no need to rush through this lesson unless you're in a hurry.

Finally for the last drawing step, carefully draw out the other entire wing like so and then you can start erasing the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up this drawing on Max from Maximum Ride.

STEP 14.

When you are finally done with the tutorial your drawing should come out look like the one you see here. Even though people have their own interpretation on what Max looks like, you can always teak this character figure to your own liking. Color her in and that's it. Great work!
