How to Draw Heroic Anatomy (male torso)

As you may know, I’ve started drawing my own comic. The problem? I have a chibi style which really doesn’t go well with the theme of the comic (or the mood or genre). So I’ve been teaching myself how to draw in the Marvel style. I have to design seven demons for this comic, four of whom are male, so I’ve been practicing the male torso. I tried to break it down into its most basic shapes and found out there are about three main ones that anyone can use to draw their superhero. If you can draw an ellipse, a pentagon, and a rectangle then you can draw a pretty ripped male comic book hero that looks complicated but isn’t!

I’m working on creating a “how-to” page to go along with the video.

Check it out and tell me what you think in the comments. Thanks!

New YouTube Video!

In my last video I talked about using comparative measurements to quickly figure out proportions. In this video I explain that idea further while drawing a figure in foreshortened view.

Creating My Own Comic…Finally!

Okay, it’s official! I wrote the first issue of my comic. Basically, I’ve been mulling around an idea for a comic since the mid 90’s. YES, it’s been that long! It has gone through many transformations but I finally started writing it. I also have three pages story-boarded. This is very exciting.

I really need to polish up on my comic book style skills since I generally work in chibi-style. This should be interesting. I will need to alter my style somewhat since this is a serious comic. It’s more of a fantasy-adventure and chibi just won’t cut it.

As I learn new techniques to use in my comic book style drawing, I will post new content like videos, downloads, and blogging more often. This should be fun, informative, and useful so stay tuned!
